City Breaks

In 2011 we are delighted to offer a programme of short breaks to some of Europe's most fascinating cities.

The London Eye, London Ghent

In Dublin you are sure to find a warm welcome. With historic landmarks and a fantastic nightlife, The Home of Guinness is a great place to go for a long weekend. We now include a St Patrick’s departure so you can be at the centre of the action for this famous national celebration.

With beautiful historic centres, meandering canals and grand squares, Bruges and Ghent are typical examples of Belgium’s charming cities. From only £139, our three day Bruges and Ghent city break is truly excellent value for money. If you want a longer getaway, why not join our five day Discover Belgium break and add excursions to Antwerp, Brussels and Ostend to Bruges and Ghent?

It’s always great to see a new city during a popular event as you can mix a weekend of sightseeing with a festival atmosphere and a unique experience.

We visit the historic Scottish capital city for the Edinburgh Tattoo – a spectacular military themed event showcasing exciting parades, intricate displays and Highland Dancers against the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle. During the festival season of August, Edinburgh has a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere.

Brussels blends beautiful historic buildings and the modern financial and political institutions that make it one of Europe’s most important cities. During the last weekend of May, Brussels hosts the Jazz Marathon where over 400 musicians descend on the Belgian capital for a free music festival. Finally, we have a three day short break to one of Europe’s largest Flea Markets in Lille. This attractive city in Northern France boasts a fine historic centre and many places of interest. See the sights and grab a bargain! If you are searching for a city break in 2011, look no further!
