City breaks and vacations in the UK

From the landmarks of London to the mountains of Wales, historic castles in Scotland and the stunning scenery of the Lake District, a holiday by train to the UK truly has something for everyone.

Bursting with museums, galleries and a stylish 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. Music lovers can take a pilgrimage to Birmingham, home city of Black Sabbath and Judas Priest or head to Manchester, to walk in the footsteps of the Beatles and Oasis.

Culture vultures should make a beeline for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest of its kind in the world, stopping in at the castle for a bit of atmosphere.

For outdoor types, conquering Mount Snowdon is a must if you're in Wales, or a walking trip to the Lake District to soak up the romantic scenery that inspired Wordsworth's poetry.

With journeys between London and the continent taking around just 2 hours, short holidays and weekend breaks in the UK have never been easier.
