A season marked by increasingly longer days, warmer temperatures and more colour, spring is a time for new beginnings and new experiences. And for many it's arguably the best time of the year. It's also a great time to travel, with many destinations benefiting from fewer crowds, cheaper deals and improving weather.

To help you make an inspired choice, we've brought together some top travel ideas and guides on the things you should see and do when on a spring holiday, as well as suggestions on where you should go. A short city break in the UK or in Europe. A long-haul adventure that brings with it an early summer feeling. Recommendations for couples, families and group of friends. It's all here.

From the canals of Amsterdam to the cobbled squares of Rome, spring can be a brilliant time to explore a new city. It's also the time of the year when the first big open-air events and festivals begin to take place, from the launch of the club season in Ibiza to cultural and religious celebrations like St Patrick's Day in Ireland and King's Day in the Netherlands. We're continually adding to our collection of spring travel inspiration, so browse around and keep checking back for new additions.
