Short Breaks

Short Breaks & City Breaks

Content

Whether you’re looking to sample one of Europe’s cultural hotspots with a quick city break, fancy a shopping trip to New York, a wildlife and wilderness escape or a long weekend of sun and sea, our short break specialists are here to help you create your perfect mini-adventure.

Find out what’s on in Paris, Rome or Barcelona before you go, discover a romantic spa retreat at Lake Como, or take a weekend break in Lapland on a reindeer safari. Or, if you want to soak up some rays while exercising your mind, your body and your credit card, consider a luxurious beach-and-shopping trip to Dubai.

With the whole of Europe on the doorstep, short break options are limitless, from horse riding in the Dordogne to a pit stop at the Monaco Grand Prix. To get the maximum from your mini-break, ask our experts about the best time to travel for away-from-it-all relaxation or to catch lively festivals and events from Bloomsday in Dublin, the Vienna Opera Festival and the spiritual pilgrimages of Spain and Portugal and carnivals under the midnight sun from Reykjavik to St Petersburg.
