Best UK city trips (1698)

Celebrate the best of British and book a city break in the UK. From living it up in London to exploring the historical city of York, there’s something for everyone. Head to Wales to take a city break in Cardiff with its fantastic shopping and buzzing nightlife. Visit Scotland to join the crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Military Tattoo or have a laugh at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival. Choose Belfast for award-winning restaurants, bars, galleries and theatres. Soak in the atmosphere in Bath with its architectural wonders and visit the Thermae Bath Spa.


Oxford, the 'city of dreaming spires' oozes history with its world-famous colleges and museums. For more history, stay in Nottingham to learn about the legend of Robin Hood or Canterbury to explore its magnificent cathedral. If you’re a Beatles fan, book an apartment or townhouse in Liverpool to visit the world famous Cavern Club and some of the many galleries and museums. 2015 is set to be another great year for the UK so contact the owner to book the perfect place for you.
