France city breaks

Make a quick trip to Paris your city break priority. With history around every corner, bistros and cafés aplenty, and art and culture top of the agenda, Parisians know how-to city break in style. Join them for a couple of days at least. Just outside of Paris, you can take an unmissable trip of a lifetime to Disneyland® Paris.

If you fancy a little time away from the crowds, head to the equally as interesting, if less packed, French cities that are ideal for city breaks. The beautiful culture-packed city of Lille is under 1 hour 30 minutes from London and makes the perfect short city break. To the East of France, you will find the stunning city of Strasbourg, also known as the Capital of Christmas. In the heart of France, discover historical and architectural landmarks in Lyon. Or take a longer break to the South of France and discover Avignon with its Gothic palaces and cultural heritage or take a trip to the exuberantly multicultural port city of Marseille. France has so much to offer.

London city breaks

London may seem so familiar, in fact, that you might even feel at home from your first visit. But no two London breaks are the same: you might binge on musicals and theatre one weekend, for instance, or shopping and museums on your next visit. Whether you’re in the market for food, culture or nightlife, there’s a city trip to London just right for you. And the best part? This fun-loving, ever-changing city is just a train ride away.

City breaks in the Netherlands

Why not wile away the hours amongst canals, winding walkways and some of the most famous museums in Europe on a weekend getaway in Amsterdam? That’s not to forget the 600+ shops and markets, as well as the 1,500+ bars, restaurants and clubs.

But lively nightlife in the Netherlands isn’t just limited to Amsterdam. The city’s neighbour Rotterdam is ideal for European city breaks with a difference.

The famous port is also a vibrant university town, with great shopping and a buzzing night-time scene that caters to all-night partygoers, culture connoisseurs and jazz aficionados. And at just under four hours from London, it’s ideal for weekend breaks with friends.

Belgium city breaks

Belgium’s capital Brussels might just surprise you with its breathtaking mix of art, culture and UNESCO sites.

Alternatively, why not lose yourself in the medieval masterpiece that is Bruges, arguably the most photogenic city in the world? Another top pick just 30 minutes from Brussels is the medieval city of Ghent, which offers a little peace and quiet away from the crowds.

Belgium isn’t just about a trip into the past. Antwerp is the coolest city in the country and caters for all your contemporary needs. Great shopping? Check. Top-notch food? Check. Diamond jewellery? Liège has far more to it than first meets the eye – it’s the cultural hub of Belgium’s Wallonia region, with museums and art on tap and a lively nightlife scene.

City breaks in Germany

Get a culture fix in Cologne with its superb museums, art galleries, and concert halls. Old and very new architecture collide in this vibrant metropolis. Pockets of history remain throughout the landscape, from its ancient Roman sites to its famous Gothic cathedral.

The atmospheric spa town of Aachen has drawn visitors for two millennia. Culture-buffs will enjoy wandering the narrow, winding streets; foodies will love popping into the many bars, outdoor restaurants and cafes below pretty pastel-painted buildings; and those looking for a restorative trip can dip into some of the hottest thermal springs in Central Europe.

Düsseldorf is Germany’s wealthiest city and sits at the confluence of the Rhine and Düssel rivers. This elegant, clean and relatively small metropolis blends modern architecture, skyscrapers and an atmospheric old town.

Sometimes a weekend away just isn’t enough. While a city break serves to whet the appetite, a longer break offers a tasting menu of treats. If you fancy hitting the slopes for skiing, snowboarding and a little après then head to the French Alps. For a longer break in France with Eurostar you can enjoy the coastal delights of the South of France or the wine and foodie treats of Bordeaux. Or why not opt for a longer stay for the whole family with Mickey and friends at Disneyland® Paris? Whatever your holiday of choice, we’ll take you to your dream destination.
