4 winter city break destinations

Sunny city breaks are one of the biggest joys in life but with the long, dark days setting in, a few days away at this time of the year can be just as enjoyable. Here are some city break destinations to bear in mind for your next few days away.

1. Warsaw

Krakow might be the more obvious choice when it comes to Poland but Warsaw has just as much to offer. As the largest city in Poland, it’s packed full of attractions and destinations to explore, from its Royal Castle to the Palace of Culture and Science. It’s also famous for its unrivalled firework display on New Year’s Eve if you’re traveling over the festive period.

2. Budapest

The capital of Hungary is a must-visit for anyone with a passion for culture. Its Old Town is a chance to uncover thousands of years’ worth of history while the newer, vibrant side of the city will keep you entertained into the early hours all year round.

3. Barcelona

The Spanish city of is no hidden gem when it comes to tourist destinations but If you want to experience a more authentic side to Barcelona, visiting in the winter months is a must. From world-famous architecture to back street tapas bars, it’s the perfect long weekend destination and visiting when it’s slightly colder means you won’t be battling your fellow Brits to see it all.

4. Copenhagen

Copenhagen is another great city to visit during winter. The Scandinavian way of life sees the locals embrace hyyge – a cosy way of life which means you can sit outside with a beverage and a blanket no matter what the weather. Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen Castle and the Royal Palace are all attractions which are worth exploring if you can tear yourself away from the canal side restaurants too.
