5 Ways to Make the Most of our City Break Deals

Thinking about a weekend away but not sure where to start? Here are five ideas for ways you can make the most of our city breaks deals…

1. Surprise Someone with a Romantic Trip

Thinking of an anniversary trip or just want to surprise your other half with a treat? Take them on a short break to one of Europe's classic romantic cities like Paris or Venice.

2. Discover a New European City

Done all the major capitals? Then discover somewhere new – take a look at deals for cities like Nice, Naples and Hamburg, as well as further-flung capitals such as Istanbul and Reykjavik.

3. See a Different Side of London…

You don't even have to head abroad. Why not see if you can find a cheap weekend deal to London. It might be best known for shopping, theatre breaks and the headline tourist attractions, but sometimes the real fun of a trip to London is exploring new neighbourhoods like Shoreditch, Brixton and Angel, and just hanging out.

4. …Or Explore the Scottish Capital

If the hustle and bustle of the big city isn’t your cup of tea, why not head the other way with a city break to Edinburgh – visit for the Fringe, for Hogmanay, or just to explore the city.

5. Roll the Dice

Feeling breezy about where and when you go? Pick a city or a deal at random. However you search, you'll find a good spread of destinations, spanning St Petersburg to Lisbon. (And if you don't fancy the first one, you can always give yourself a second go).
