City and shopping holidays

Iconic streets and shopping on repeat: City break highlights

Sometimes we need a beach getaway, but sometimes it’s the excitement of exploring a new city that appeals to us.

So, what's the great thing about cities? Everything you’ll need to see, do and eat is right there on your (hotel) doorstep, so your holiday starts as soon as the plane touches down.

Whether it’s a relaxing weekend excursion you’re after, or you’re looking to escape on a last minute romantic getaway with a loved one, city breaks are ideal. Cram in as many attractions as possible or simply soak in the atmosphere of a new city as you hop between its coffee shops, and, later, bars. Whatever your style and wherever you want to go, our city break packages are here to help you do it.

City break destinations

Popular American destinations like New YorkBoston and Washington DC are perfect for family holidays, friends, couples and if you’re going solo, too. For a different side of America, head to the West Coast and experience the various vibes that Las VegasLos Angeles or San Francisco have to offer. All major US cities host the annual shopping event of Black Friday, where retailers offer deep discounts in order to clear stock — the perfect opportunity to bag yourself a bargain. If you happen to be in America for Black Friday during your city break, expect deals on deals on deals. Did someone say “Christmas shopping”?

But let's not forget Canada too - Toronto is bursting with things to do and see across a long weekend, from shopping and dining out to taking a trip to the impressive Niagara Falls. Discover the cosmopolitan city of Vancouver after a quick hop across from Seattle, the perfect combination of skyscrapers and scenery in one memorable weekend break

But don't think the fun stops there - there are plenty more destinations suited perfectly for a city break stop-over. Enjoy a wild weekend of culture and attractions in Bangkok, soak up some rays in the Middle East’s best-kept secret, Ajman and enjoy one of the many experiences we have on offer in neighbouring Abu Dhabi or Dubai, get your dancing boots on and dance the night away in one of the infamous honky tonk bars in New Orleans or if jazz music is more your style, a trip to Chicago is sure to get your toes tapping. A little further from home, Hong Kong is the ultimate city break destination. Sample traditional cuisine, marvel at towering skyscrapers and hike some seriously breathtaking trails, all in one place. The world really is your oyster.
