You are a… City Slicker

The city has got everything you need, thank you very much. And besides, green is your least favourite colour (unless it’s the mint in your mojito)

Try these on for size...

City Breaks

City Breaks

Think of a holiday destination and it's likely that a palm-fringed beach springs to mind, but don't rule out the good old fashioned city break. By definition we're talking short transfers and a perfect distillation of the country in question's cultural highlights in one conveniently accessible destination. Then there are more than likely some seriously slick hotels (both big and boutique), excellent restaurants and top shopping to boot.

Berlin

Berlin

The perfect urban city break destination, with museums, galleries and a cutting edge contemporary art and music scene.

New York

New York

Does it need an introduction? Go shopping, go partying, stay in an uber cool urban hotel, and enjoy your bite out of the Big Apple.

Marrakech

Marrakech

Just over three hours away, Marrakech is quite simply the most exotic destination in easy reach of the UK.

Miami

Miami

A buzzing contemporary art scene, a dance music scene threatening to rival that in Ibiza, the extremely sexy Cuban exile scene, and a gay see and be scene. It could only be Miami.

Nyhavn waterfront

Copenhagen

Denmark’s capital is home to renaissance castles such as Amalienborg Palace, Rosenborg and King Christian IV’s architectural peculiarity, the Round Tower.

The Doorway of the Cathedral on Plaza de la Reina

Valencia and Eastern Spain

Long overshadowed by other Spanish cities, Valencia is fast becoming as stylish as Barcelona and developing into a fashionable short break destination.

Galata Tower at Dusk

Istanbul

Just three and a half hours from the UK, this atmospheric 'East meets West' city is a perfect destination for a long weekend.

Aerial View of Cape Town

Cape Town

Surely the ultimate 'winter sun' city break from the UK; endless appeal, and minimal time difference.

The Stockholm Waterfront at Dusk

Stockholm

Stockholm is one of the most appealing cities in Europe.

St Nicholas Cathedral

St Petersburg

Built in defiance of nature and logic, St. Petersburg is a monument to the will of Peter the Great. His city became a ‘window on the West’ and remains Russia’s cultural capital.

Sydney Harbour

Sydney & New South Wales

With a stunning natural setting, Sydney is Australia's leading city, known worldwide for its spectacular harbour and the iconic Opera House.
