City Breaks in the UK
Find your ideal hotel
The United Kingdom can be a land of paradoxes. In a single day, you can view the latest architectural wonder in London and the remains of what a Roman citizen would have considered an architectural wonder more than 1900 years ago.
After enjoying the view at 4,406 feet (1,343 metres) on Ben Nevis, the UK's highest point, compare it to those 500 miles away at Holme Fen, at 7 metres below sea level, England's lowest point. We're lucky to have amazing sites and cities to enjoy while taking a city break, staycation, or romantic getaway for couples.
Whatever city break you choose, always include Accor hotels in your travel plans. Our comfortable and stylish hotels will help make any city break even better.
