Want to get the whole family together for a city break to remember? From bustling markets and world-famous landmarks to natural wonders and even the Northern Lights, we’ve pulled together some of our very favourite spots for city breaks packed to the brim with family fun…
New York, USA
The Big Apple is an absolute spectacle no matter how young or old you are! It’s one of the most famous cities in the world, with so much to do and see. You could spend your days browsing fascinating museums, meandering around Central Park, sailing over to the Statue of Liberty or being elevated to the top of the Empire State Building. By night, the city lights up and you can see iconic sights such as Times Square or you could even head to Broadway to catch a show the whole family will enjoy (did someone say Disney musicals?!). The adventure never ends!
Iceland’s capital is a world away from the city that never sleeps, but it’s just as full of wonder and excitement. Many families stay in Reykjavik because it’s safe, clean and has plenty of interactive museums and outdoor activities. However, it’s also popular as it has easy access to some incredible excursions. One day you could be floating around the famous Blue Lagoon and the next you could be venturing out into the Golden Circle to see mind-boggling geysers, craters and waterfalls. Expect once-in-a-lifetime experiences and magical memories to treasure forever!
A stylish, central and comfortable hotel to stay in on your trip to Reykjavik is the Klettur Hotel, Iceland.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Our next city break destination couldn’t be more contrasting to the chills of Iceland. Heat things up and explore the lavish city of Dubai with all the family. Aside from marvelling at the breath-taking Burj Khalifa and the dancing Dubai Fountain, you can have days out at the Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark, hit the beach, visit an aquarium or have some fun at a theme park (there’s even a Legoland in Dubai!). With so much more for families than first meets the eye, Dubai is a perfect place to enjoy a break with your loved ones.
Want a hotel the kids will be AMAZED by? Treat yourselves to a stay in Atlantis The Palm in Palm Jumeirah.
Moving along to one of the most colourful and lively cities in the world – say hello to beautiful Barcelona! This city has it all, from extraordinary Gaudi architecture and insightful museums to glorious weather and sprawling beaches. Some of our favourite pastimes for families include visiting the fabulous Parc Guell, going to the zoo, wandering the Gothic Quarter, visiting the Magic Fountain at Montjuic and going for a tour of Europe’s largest football stadium (with the fourth largest capacity in the world!), Camp Nou. One thing’s for sure – you’ll never be bored in Barcelona.
We’d recommend a wonderful place to stay with easy access to all the amenities you need – the Gallery Hotel.
Dubrovnik offers a sizzling city break that also has many elements of your favourite beach holidays. It’s steeped in history and drenched in elegance, with a fabulous selection of restaurants and gorgeous waterside views. When it comes to keeping the kids entertained, you could explore the wondrous Old Town, take a boat ride out to Lokrum Island, catch a cable car for sky-high panoramic views or visit various famous filming spots from Game of Thrones. Your trip can be as chilled or as action-packed as you’d like in captivating Croatia!
For a peaceful hotel that’s within easy reach to both the beach and the centre, take a look at the Grand Hotel Park.
