City breaks are becoming ever more so popular as time goes on. Low-cost airlines mean people are planning more city location breaks than ever before. And why not? They’re something we can enjoy whatever time of the year, and it’s a great way to de-stress and have some time away. But with all this choice, what really makes the perfect city break? In order to get the most out of your city break, here are a few things you need to consider before booking anything.


Compare fares between different airlines and book your flights as soon as possible – the closer it gets to your time away, the more expensive the flight could be. Plus, the earlier you sort it out the quicker you can have your exact dates when it comes to booking your hotel and transfers. Take a look at BugdgetAir to help you find the best flights.


The location is, of course, the main thing about your trip, so choosing the right one is crucial. If you want to stay somewhere quiet and relaxing, chose a more remote location. Or, if you want to be where all the hustle and bustle is then head straight for the city centre. With all this in mind, remember to consider everything and pick your location wisely. The last thing you want is to be disappointed in your decision. Why don’t you check out some reviews for some helpful advice?


It’s often the small things in our lives that make the best memories for us, so bear this in mind when planning your city break. Once you have chosen your location, write down a list of some of the thing’s you’d like to do when you’re there, leaving some gaps in case you come across anything interesting whilst you’re there. Need some inspiration? Why not check out a show? There are lots of of last minute deals on West End shows available online, and they’re great fun.

For food and top tourist attractions take a look at your favourite blogger’s website to see if they have any city guides for where you are planning on going. You could also check out vlogs on YouTube to see what people have been up to and if it looks like something you’d be interested in.


You can enjoy city breaks all year round, but seasonality can have a huge effect on many decisions. Consider what would be more appealing to you –  a hot sunny city break, or a cold city break with cosy hats and gloves, and weigh it up with your planned activities in mind too.

What to pack

Now, what to pack depends on your destination and the time of year. It would be a smart choice for you pack some comfortable shoes so that your feet aren’t in agony whilst sight seeing. Your other essentials should include a raincoat (just in case), camera, money and a travel guide.

Now you have the main part of your city break, figure out what you’re going to wear..!
