UK City Breaks
A UK City Break Guide
Do you ever find that despite living in the UK, there is still so much of it to see and experience? A city break in the UK is a great way to explore somewhere new, yet somewhere close to home. You can worry less about long airport queues and whether you've packed more than 100ml of liquids, and instead, you can enjoy you trip.
Here are the top cities in the UK
It's got to be in there really hasn't it? Whether you prefer dinner and the theatre, some time wandering around the shops, or taking in a museum or two, a city break in London is a no-brainer really. There's something for everyone here.
Head up to Scotland and enjoy a city break in Edinburgh for lots of history and plenty of Scottish culture. It's hard not to know you're in Scotland when you're in Edinburgh.
Norwich is often known for its shopping but it's also a great city break to explore a bit more of the area. WHy not time it with a show or concert to really make the most of a weekend break here.
UK City Breaks By Train
The UK has quite a good rail network and a city break in the UK by train is a really good idea to avoid any long journeys behind the wheel and traffic jams on the city streets. In fact, with most mainline stations in the heart of city centres, it's ideal when you want to jump off the train and be in the thick of it all.
London has a number of mainline train stations, and it can be a beast to get around, so if you're heading to the big smoke, you might want to add on a travel card for the duration of your stay, otherwise an Oyster card (or contactless) is just as good.
UK City Breaks For Couples
While a lot of cities cater to most tastes, there are a number which are perfect for couples. For a start, you'll want to pick the right hotel or accommodation. In fact, staying in the suburbs of a city can be a great way to feel like a local, especially if you're staying in an apartment through the likes of Airbnb. It does mean you might have to commute in a little so if you fancy a late night, a city centre hotel might be best.
More "grown up" cities could be places like Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, or York where there is a lot of history, while nightlife in cities like London, Manchester and Glasgow are popular if you prefer michelin star dinners and cocktails.
