City break holidays, New York

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.
