A city break doesn’t just mean a quick trip to Europe – our escapes take you to the world’s most iconic spots. You could soon be looking up at Dubai’s record-breaking skyline, trying your luck on the slot machines in Las Vegas, or wandering around New York’s Central Park. Closer to home, Amsterdam draws in museum-goers and cheese lovers, while Barcelona shows off sandy beaches alongside its wow-worthy architecture.
Wherever you fancy ticking off your bucket list, you can relax knowing you’ll be staying in one of our handpicked, close-to-the-action hotels. Plus, we can recommend a huge line-up of expert-led experiences to help you explore in style.
We love them all. But with our huge list of city breaks across France, Spain, Italy and beyond, you can pick whichever trip suits you best. Filter down your search results by duration, price and facilities to see what fits your requirements.
If you’ve got limited time to spare, stay close to home and head to a city such as Paris, Amsterdam or Barcelona, with flight times of around two hours or less. We offer flexible flights with a range of trusted airline partners, too, so you can make the most of your time there by booking an early morning or after-work departure.
For a short city break, you’ll likely only have a carry-on case in your luggage allowance, so you’ll have to pack lightly. Remember the 100ml rule for onboard liquids, too. Bring comfortable shoes for exploring and try not to overpack – you’re only going for a couple of days. Worst case, you’ll be able to pick up any forgotten supplies while you’re away.
It depends on what time of year you’re travelling – go in the off-peak season and you’ll find deals all over the world, while a mid-summer break will push up the prices in the sunniest spots. All of our city breaks are great value, though, so you can be sure you’re getting the most for your money.
