London at dawn

The UK's favourite city breaks

Published - 20/10/2021

As a nation we love a good city break! From exploring famous landmarks to stumbling on a hidden gem or two, there’s nothing better than travelling with friends and family for an autumn escape. This last year has made us appreciate even more the tonnes of amazing cities we have in the UK and luckily they’re all wonderfully unique in their own way. 

With so many destinations to choose from we’ve decided to put together a list of our customers’ favourite city breaks in the UK. From northern gems like Manchester and Liverpool to beautiful cities down south such as Bath and of course London.

 

1. Bath

A shopaholic's dream, full of independent shops perfect for finding that rare or special gift for a loved one or yourself!

It's a firm favourite for a staycation, and we're not surprised with its relaxing thermal Roman Baths and the most beautiful architecture. Just make sure you look up and don't miss it!

Take a look at Sophie of @thechoiceofsophie’s recent trip to Bath.

2. Manchester

Manchester is the real jewel of  the north. Bursting with restaurants and bars to suit any palette, museums for a more cultured trip or for the more adventurous, why not learn to ski at Chill Factore?

Here’s what @ablondetourist’s got up to on her recent trip to Manchester with us!

 

3. London

We couldn’t leave the capital off our list now could we? One of the nation’s best cities and for good reason too! There are too many amazing attractions to mention so here’s some of our favourites... Say hi to the royals at Buckingham Palace, if you plan ahead the changing of the guards ceremony is a crowd pleaser for all. Grab a hot drink and take a seat for some people watching in Trafalgar Square. If you love being entertained why not catch a show as the arts industry gets back on its feet or see the beauty of the whole capital from the heights of the London Eye.

It’s not just skyscrapers, shopping and fast attractions  London has a plethora of incredible green spaces spread across the city from the famous Hyde Park to the beautiful Japanese gardens of Holland Park and even dinosaur hunting in Crystal Palace! Perfect to see those autumn colours.

See how @alana.wanders got on her during her recent trip to the capital with us.

 

4. Liverpool

Another great northern city, Liverpool, is the epitome of cool and a definite contender for the UK’s favourite city break. With its rich musical history the city is full of amazing venues where you can catch some of the best upcoming acts in the region. 

Head down to the iconic Albert Docks to try out some of the best restaurants and bars or head over to the Baltic Triangle for a more indie style evening with a Peaky Blinder themed bar  and some Ghetto Mini Golf!

Here’s @Marisa.vogiatzi living it up at the Albert Docks in Liverpool.

 

There you have it, just a few of UK’s favourite cities, we hope we’ve given you some autumn travel inspiration but if you fancy somewhere else the chances are we can take you! Make sure to tag us on Instagram on your next trip and you too could be featured in our next blog!
