Wasp ID, please

Can anyone identify this large wasp, please?
We have had lots of these this summer and, at first, I thought it might be a queen wasp but we have seen far too many for it to be a queen.
It is slightly smaller than a hornet and does not sound like a hornet when in flight. I have never seen such a big wasp before. It measures 25mm.
Any thoughts?
