Travel to Basel
Train tickets from £80.50 o/w*
Sitting at the crossroads of Switzerland, France and Germany, and boasting a cosmopolitan mélange of nationalities and languages, Basel is one of Switzerland's most important cultural centres.
With over 40 museums housing everything from fine art and caricatures to mammoths and sabre-toothed tigers, there really is something for culture vultures of all persuasions, while a stroll around the Old Town is like taking a step back in time. Look out for the impressive red sandstone town hall and the traditional houses that line the pretty cobbled streets.
Nearby Basel Münster with its distinctive towers is hard to miss. Pop in for a moment of quiet contemplation or if your timing's right, join a tour on Museumsnacht for an atmospheric look around.
With tickets from £80.50, you can be in Basel in under seven hours with a quick change in Paris. And with trains leaving London up to eighteen times a day, you can plan the perfectly timed getaway.
