UK city breaks
City breaks and vacations in the UK
From the landmarks of London to the mountains of Wales, festival fun in Scotland to the art and music scene of Northern Ireland, a holiday by train to the UK truly has something for everyone.
Bursting with museums, galleries and a shopping experience (or three) for every day of the year, London's also the perfect place to catch a musical or sample some of the finest dining in the world.
For a royal visit, Windsor Castle isn’t far away, while punting in Cambridge offers a more scholarly step back in time. Shopaholics meanwhile will love Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester, and culture vultures should make a beeline for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest of its kind in the world.
For outdoor types, conquering Mount Snowdon is a must if you're in Wales, while those brave enough to follow in some enormous footsteps should cross the Irish Sea to the Giant's Causeway.
With journeys between London and the continent taking around just 2 hours, short holidays and weekend breaks in the UK have never been easier.
