Weekend Breaks in England

Everybody loves a good weekend away - a chance to break from everyday routine and do something different.

You might be looking for something cheap and cheerful, an action-packed weekend of fun or even something romantic to treat the other half.

And just because you might only have 2 days to play with, there's still an amazing choice of things to do for weekend breaks in England.

City Breaks in England

There's a huge array of cities to choose from - you can't beat a good city break. With endless attractions, fabulous shopping and delicious dining, they have plenty to offer. How about Chester? Or Blackpool, the Las Vegas of England? Of course there's always the capital, London, to explore.

Sightseeing and City Tours

If you know where you want to go but aren't sure what to do when you get there, then sightseeing tours and touring passes are a great idea during weekend breaks in England. You can take a guided tour of the city to make sure you don't miss any of the famous sights and landmarks, or invest in a tourist pass - they often include entry into many of the area's attractions, so you can see them all for one great price.

Outdoor Activities

If you fancy getting back to nature, then a weekend of outdoor activities is ideal. England's varied landscapes mean you are never far from a new activity, set in beautiful surroundings. Are you a keen golfer or horse-rider? Do you love the water, and fancy a bit of sailing? Then make the most of what England has to offer and book a weekend doing your favourite things or discovering something new. Go boating on the Norfolk Broads, go fishing somewhere along the 3200km of coastline, or ride a horse in the gorgeous Lake District.

Theme Parks in England

If you want something a little different for your weekend breaks in England, try a themed break. England is the ideal place to spend a scary couple of days out exploring ghostly goings-on - there are haunted mansions, castle ruins and spooky legends everywhere! Highlights include Berry Pomeroy Castle, one of the most haunted in Britain, and the eerie Rollright Stones in the Cotswolds. Warwick Castle even has a Ghosts Alive Exhibition. Perhaps the best place, however, is the East of England - there are more ghosts per square mile than anywhere else in the country! You can even meet the ghost of Anne Boleyn, who haunts Blickling Hall.

Spa Breaks in England

After a stressful week, you may however just want to relax. Or maybe it's a special occasion and you're looking for a bit of pampering. Whatever the reason, England is the perfect place to enjoy some luxury. You can spoil yourself at Harrogate's Turkish Baths and Spa, or indulge yourself at Sussex's Amberley Castle.
