Our top tips for a UK city break this autumn

Looking for a weekend away in one of the UK’s cities but not sure where to start?  Here are a few ideas

Canterbury, Kent

Travellers have been coming to Canterbury and telling their tales since Chaucer’s time.  Here you’ll find the historic seat of the Archbishop and the Church of England. With its magnificent Cathedral and ancient Medieval city walls, Canterbury offers a wealth of historical and cultural sites to visit and even has a beautiful river where you can hire punts by the hour – a hit with all ages.

Salisbury, Wiltshire

There’s lots to discover in this fabulous city, steeped in history and brimming with culture such as Salisbury Museum, The Rifles Museum, Arundells (the former home of Prime Minister, Sir Edward Heath) and the National Trust’s Mompesson House all within the Cathedral Close.

After a busy day exploring the city on the Magna Carta-inspired Barons’ trail,  or taking in a bit of shopping, check into one of our apartments, lots to choose from and a few just a short stroll from the Cathedral.

Gorgeous views too

Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

Wander through courtyards and absorb the atmosphere, it’s fascinating to think that students have been studying under these roofs for hundreds of years whilst living in this incredible English city.  You may even like to hire a bike and take to the roads or cross one of the numerous gardens and green spaces.  Don’t forget to go down to the Cam and hire a punt.

Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Accommodation in Tunbridge Wells boasts Georgian period elegance and much more. This Kent spa town, visited by many monarchs in their time, was granted Royal status in 1909.  The oldest part of this spa town is an area called The Pantiles. Here we have some beautiful accommodation in Tunbridge Wells and this area is the hub of music and arts events throughout the year.

Winchester, Hampshire

Winchester is a city full of life and energy situated on the outskirts of the South Downs with its fabulous architecture and famous cathedral, one of the largest in England.  There’s plenty to keep you busy – the local historic attractions are a must, including The Great Hall, the nearby Stonehenge and of course, Jane Austen’s house.

Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

We have a lovely selection of accommodation in Cheltenham. Cheltenham is a great location for short breaks, romantic or family weekends, summer and bank holidays.

If you’re involved in racing, you’ll probably be visiting Cheltenham from time to time so remember the range of Cheltenham accommodation is as diverse as the range of things to do. When staying at your Cheltenham accommodation why not visit the Regency Cheltenham Spa or head off and explore the Cotswolds.
