A great city break is a perfect alternative to the typical sun, sea and sand experience. One of my resolutions for 2015 was to visit more places and city breaks were top of my agenda, I haven’t visited as many as I’d like this year but one of my favourites was Dublin just after valentines day, you can see my posts here.
City breaks are becoming a popular alternative to a longer holiday, with many people including me seeking out interesting sights, fun activities and fabulous accommodation to stay in. There are so many unique places to stay and things to do, sometimes it’s hard to cram everything in a short stay. Some of the most popular experiences on a city break include:
- Local cuisine
- Local nightlife
I love exploring all of the above and seeing some of the amazing architecture here in the UK and overseas, leaves you feeling captivated and with some amazing memories. You don’t have to hop on a plane to find cities to explore. The UK has some brilliant locations to see and experience a wide range of activities and attractions, take a look at my wishlist here of top UK city breaks, some I have been lucky enough to visit. City Apartments recently created a fun infographic on City Travel Habits and it illustrates perfectly how many people including myself are taking city breaks over the traditional holiday in the sun.
A city break isn’t just for the solo traveller or young looking for the next hot spot to discover, it’s also a popular choice for families too. There are so many fascinating things to do on a city break, it really is a perfect place to create some lasting memories with loved ones.
As Christmas is nearly here, are you planning on any city breaks for the end of the year? I’m hoping a trip to Bath for the amazing Christmas Market will be on the cards!
