Great City Breaks in UK for 2014

It might still be the first month of the year but no one can deny that advanced planning would go a long way since this will allow you to schedule your activities for the year ahead. After all, there are so many things to consider including your schedule and available vacation leaves. To help you assess when and where to go here are some of the best European destinations for the year.



This sleepy town did not remain as a West Country backwater with the development projects in the area. The hotel Gainsborough taps the thermal waters in town and it is the first one to do so. Interesting haunts also include Hauser & Wirth near Durslade Farm. This global powerhouse for art features art spaces along the gardens and the guesthouse.



This seaside town in Laugharne is a cool getaway especially for those who are fans of the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. The boat house belonging to this man would be cool and people who can give solid proof that they are celebrating their birthday can go to Brown’s Hotel and claim a free pint. The pub at this hotel was the very place where the poet took his drinks. In addition to the historical importance of Brown’s in the life of Dylan Thomas, it has also been refurbished to mirror a boutique hotel.


You might think that you have limited options when you are in the UK but there are actually cool spots in the Blackwater estuary. A private island near Maldon known as Osea holds camps for kids and there are also parties and festivals although there are rumors that there will be a restaurant for day trippers. Unfortunately, guests who are planning to stay the night are the only ones which are given clearance to cross. If you are on a budget, Mersea is the perfect choice. The island is open to all and there delectable seafood here is hard to say no to. There are also overnight accommodations including a floating cabin and a B&B near the beach.



The mention of Yorkshire brings forth memories of Mary Lennox and the secrets of a huge manor. The moors here are definitely something that attracts a lot of people to the area. The Tour de France for 2014 would also be held here but there is much to the place than the competition. The coast along the North Sea, East Yorkshire’s Wolds and the moors in North York will give you a wonderful picture of the place. Attractions since the Victorian days include Whitby and for those who love drinking beer, there’s no need to worry that you will miss out on a good brew as beer in Yorkshire is excellent. Simple cafes are a good source of sumptuous food.



Getting reacquainted with the largest city in Scotland is definitely a great goal during the next year and there is so much to see and experience in this city. The city is starting to become a popular place for a city break and over time the city has been transformed with the focus on the culture, design and architecture. The cultural scene in the city is spectacular and there are innumerable destinations that are worth paying attention to. Should you need a place to start, Riverside Museum which was proclaimed as the European Museum in 2013 is a good place to start.

Planning where to go on your intended vacation days would surely be difficult to pinpoint right on the spot. Hence, it would be awesome if you can plan ahead of time and even if you are not going too far, these suggestions would surely help you plan carefully to make your vacation a good one.
