on-packed cities scattered across the UK and beyond, the toughest decision will be which city to explore next.

Short breaks around the UK

If you’re not fond of air travel or the tediousness of scheduling pit stops during a road trip, it is worth considering a staycation in your very own city. Pack an overnight (or two) bag and for your next weekend getaway, be a tourist in your own backyard. Londoners can walk along the River Thames, explore the city’s world-class museums and end the day by swimming a lap or two in the hotel pool.

Liverpudlians, too, can enjoy the sights and sounds Merseyside, hop on a river cruise, visit The Beatles Story and sit down for a scrumptious brunch in one of the city’s great spots along Duke Street. And of course, dinner is bound to be at your hotel restaurant overlooking the docks.

Short breaks around Europe

Maybe you’d prefer to explore a different city, a different country. Spend a weekend sleeping in a chalet in France for a retreat into nature, lie by a lagoon pool in sunny Barcelona or enjoy a luxurious stay in historic Rome. If you want the bright lights of a city skyline, head to New York for walks along the High Line and when the sun sets, be enthralled by the bright lights of Times Square.

With so many exciting cities ready to be explored, why not get in on the fun? Pencil in a city break or staycation for your next trip and find a hotel experience that matches the wonders of the city streets.
