City Breaks

Discover top attractions in Europe and beyond with one of our amazing city breaks. Bag short breaks in Amsterdam and tick off its cultural highlights in a few days. Or book a week’s stay in Dubai so you can combine relaxing days on the beach with some shopping and sightseeing. 

Can’t decide where to go? You’ve got some of the world’s most iconic capitals on your doorstep. Hop over to Europe for a romantic escape and steal a kiss under the Eiffel Tower in Paris, or by the Colosseum in Rome. If you don’t mind travelling a little further for your city fix, nothing is more magical than a trip to New York, from its famous avenues to its Broadway shows and iconic skyline.

For something truly unique, Iceland’s cool capital, Reykjavík offers breathtaking Arctic scenery and a chance to see the Northern Lights. While Gibraltar is unlike anywhere else you’ll have ever been! When you’re not making friends with the resident monkeys, you could be exploring underground tunnels and soaking up the Rock’s British-Spanish influences.

Wherever you choose, creating your perfect city break has never been easier.

Long Haul City Breaks

Yes, Europe’s certainly home to some fascinating sights, but venture a little further and you’ll find some of the world’s best city breaks. Las Vegas is the ultimate choice with its illuminated strip, themed hotels and impressive casino collection. Other faraway favourites include the likes of San Francisco and glitzy Dubai, whose nightlife and shopping is ranked among the best in the world.

From girly getaways to romantic breaks, there are plenty of reasons to splurge on one of our luxury city breaks. Beautifully appointed rooms overlooking the Eiffel Tower is what you can look forward to in Paris, while New York’s swankiest properties let you observe Manhattan from their slick rooftop bars. Dubai is another must for lavish short breaks with some of the world’s best hotels making up its skyline.

Barcelona somehow manages to blend laid-back beach days with busy city life - and the best part is, you can flit between both. Find a base close to the coast and spend most of your days relaxing, or choose a hotel within walking distance from the tapas bars of the Gothic Quarter. Families will love Gaudi’s multi-coloured artwork around the city. While most football fans come here for one reason: to experience Camp Nou (home of the legendary Barcelona FC) even if it’s just for a tour.

With some fantastic deals waiting to be snapped up, you can grab city breaks in New York all year round. Admire Central Park’s cherry blossom trees in the spring, dine alfresco in Washington Square come summer and witness those amazing Christmas window displays on Fifth Avenue during winter. But whatever month you head here, you can’t venture out without ticking off New York’smost famous landmarks, from the Statue of Liberty to the Empire State Building. And you’ll find hotels in a choice of neighbourhoods, whether you want to be close to the tourist centre or explore the city’s lesser-known edges.

Cliffside bars, pavement cafes and shimmering views of the Adriatic - city breaks in Dubrovnik are pretty impressive. You’ll be amazed by its antique backdrop as soon as you step foot through Pile Gate (the city’s grand entrance). Couples will love its romantic vibes as they stroll along the marble main street in search of somewhere to eat, while Game of Thrones fans could easily spend their entire trip visiting the many filming locations.

Perfect for short getaways, city breaks in Dublin are a combination of culture and nightlife. Experience the Temple Bar district’s famous live music or sample a fresh pint of Guinness from its official brewery - however you spend your time in Dublin, it won’t take long for you to see why it’s ranked among the best cities in the world. What’s more, you can choose a base to suit your preferences with hotels right in the centre and others a taxi ride away.

Located around an hour away from the UK, city breaks in Amsterdam are a top choice for short breaks. Coffee shops, canals and more cycle lanes than you’ve probably ever seen in one place - it’s a city like no other. Everyone has something different in mind when they come here, that’s why we have hotels to suit every taste. Art lovers and couples will favour accommodation near the Museum Quarter. More of a party animal? Then you’d be better placed near the lively Red Light District and many bars.

What type of city break is for me?
