City Breaks

Experience the buzz

If you’re always looking for new places to see and discover, city breaks are the getaway option for you.

With a mix of attractions old and new, in a host of ever-changing cities, city breaks have never been so exciting! There’s so much to see and do – galleries, museums, architecture, theatres, cafes, restaurants and shopping. One day will definitely not be long enough! But don’t worry, we’ve got central hotels near some of the greatest cities in the country, so you can spend each day exploring, then retreat to the comfort of your room to recharge – ready to do it all again!

The only tricky bit is deciding which city to visit first…

How about the metropolitan city of Birmingham? With its rich offering of galleries, live music, bars and vast shopping – it’s a great city break destination to spend a weekend away. Or what about Glasgow? With its world-class cultural scene, Glasgow was one of the first cities to be named a European Capital of Culture. World famous artwork is featured in several museums and galleries around the city, many of which are free to visit.

And then of course there is London – the city that never sleeps! The capital has something to offer everyone, young to old. From couture to high street fashion, London is home to top department stores such as Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Liberty, to name a few. With some of the most renowned museums, galleries and visitor attractions in the world, London has a wealth of culture for you to experience. And for truly British culture how about a visit to Buckingham Palace or the Houses of Parliament?

If you’re looking to spend lots of time outdoors on your city break, Derby and Cambridge, have expansive green parks and open spaces situated throughout the city and surrounding areas while both benefitting from a bustling centre with lots to do.

So whether you’re planning a short break, weekend stay, or a longer trip, our city break hotels are perfect for some rest and relaxation after a day of exploring.
