Today’s busy lifestyles tend to leave little room in the calendar for a fortnight of holidays, and if your diary is already looking a little too full to shoehorn one in, you might be feeling a bit depressed. Fortunately, there’s one sure-fire way to perk yourself up, and that’s to pepper your year with a few short city breaks.
Travellers don’t even need to leave the country. London is one of the world’s most popular destinations for city breaks, offering diversity, multiculturalism and historical architecture on almost every street. A typical day in London can include a trip to the Tower of London, followed by a spin round the London Eye and a wander past Buckingham Palace. Everything is conveniently within easy reach, and riding the London Underground is a great way to avoid the busy roads.
Take your pick
It’s not just London that will capture your heart – the UK is spoilt for choice when it comes to iconic cities. Take Liverpool for example – the name immediately conjures up images of the Beatles, the Royal Liver Building and of course the Mersey Ferry. Travellers might also want to consider Edinburgh. For starters, check out the zoo, the castle and the festival – but remember to stay warm!
Whichever city you choose to visit this year, make it count. Do ample research before embarking and make a list of desired must-see attractions so nothing gets missed. A UK city break will be an unforgettable experience, and you’ll learn so much more about your homeland in the process.
