Brace yourself, Londoners
Heathrow is expecting more than 300,000 people to hit its airport this weekend, with Stansted set to attract at least 103,000.
Around 5.1 million people are expected to head out on a break within the UK, according to national tourism agency VisitEngland.
This is expected to generate around £1.3 billion for the UK economy.
Locally the amount of traffic could affect Notting Hill Carnival as more than 1,000 London bus drivers and engineers plan to strike. Unite Members from Tower Transit are set to stage two 24 hour strikes on Friday and the Bank Holiday Monday.
The strike is expected to affect 28 different routes across the East and West of the Capital.
Mike Weston, transport for London’s director of buses , told the BBC: “I’m sorry that some of our customers may face disruption to their usual routes.
“We’re also encouraging Tower Transit and Unite to resolve the dispute as quickly as possible to avoid disruption to passengers’ journeys.”
