All you need to know about Shopping and City Breaks

How to plan for a weekend city break?

If you’re short on time, you can still make the most of it with a weekend city break to cities like London, Sydney, Paris, Singapore, Hong Kong, Rome or even Devon and Cornwall. Check out our city breaks for inspiration, then choose your favourite Trafalgar trip, pack your bags, and you're on your way!

What are the popular cities for city breaks?

If you’re itching for a city tour, you can’t go wrong with some of the world’s most popular cities. Bangkok, Paris and London were the top three most-visited cities last year, with Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, New York City, Istanbul, Tokyo, Osaka, Phuket, Milan and Barcelona all making up the top 20 most-visited cities.

Where should I go for a weekend city break in Europe?

There are endless choices for your weekend break in Europe. We love to go shopping in London, walk down the Champs-Élysées in Paris, wander the canals in Amsterdam, see the ancient sights of Rome and relax in the pubs of Dublin.

Where to go for a winter city break?

If you’re dreaming of a winter wonderland with snowy streets, cosy cafes, twinkling lights and festive cheer, look no further than the European cities like Vienna, Salzburg, Munich, Dresden, Lucerne and Zurich, along with the Scandinavian cities like Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Helsinki. We also love St. Petersburg in Russia and Reykjavik in Iceland.
