without amassed holiday time or lots of spare cash, you can still get away
from your routine with a short break. With the UK’s frequent cool, grey days
and its proximity to warm climates, a short break can do just the trick to
cure the rainy day blues. Loads of mini holidays are available to cities and
beaches just a short flight away. But the UK itself is not to be overlooked: a
quick holiday within the UK can rejuvenate your soul and bring you to places
you may have never known existed!
A short weekend jaunt can give you renewed strength when work and daily
concerns have become just too much. If you must get out of Britain, there are
vast options for warmer weather travel. Spain is a particularly popular
destination, but beware: you may never come back! The southern coast of Spain
and its Mediterranean islands make inexpensive getaways, with flights and
accommodation available in packages starting in the low £200s. Popular
destinations are the Costa del Sol, Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza – to name just a
few. The south of France, Greece, Cyprus, and Turkey make for exotic getaways
and offer all-inclusive packages, often at bargain rates, too.
Looking for something more action-packed? City breaks make excellent mini
breaks. Outside the UK, Paris is one-stop shopping for a short rendezvous with
romance. Visit a museum, stroll along the Seine, take an afternoon café au
lait then watch the city light up from the heights of the Eiffel Tower.
Prague, Amsterdam, and Rome are more charming cities close by with good food,
first-class museums, and enough of a distance so that you’ll feel you’ve taken
that much-needed step outside your world. New York has also become a favourite
destination from the UK. Pack a long weekend in the Big Apple with Broadway
theatre and upscale shopping.
Perhaps, though, that quick holiday jaunt can be found in your own backyard.
Sites within the UK should not be overlooked. First and foremost, London is
easily accessed, and its world renowned attractions make for a superb city
break. Dublin and Edinburgh will likewise reconnect you to history and natural
beauty – a great idea for travelling with children. On the other hand, most
short breaks mean much-needed R and R. Within the UK are loads of rustic
cottages set back in enchanted glens for time alone in nature.
Whether by car, train, plain, or sea, a short holiday far or near can meet
anyone’s getaway needs.
