City Breaks

From breweries to castles, city bustle to countryside bliss, discover the best of Royal Britain and London is the heart and soul of it! London is truly the crossroads of the world, from business to art to sport, it’s global in reach, but with distinctly English traditions. The British capital has inhabitants and visitors from around the world giving the city its distinctive international flair. Central London is a thriving business and leisure centre – home to influential art galleries and museums. A rich sense of history is balanced by cutting-edge style. Greenery and open spaces extend on all sides, with Hyde Park, Green Park and St. James Park all within reach. It’s just a short stroll to world-famous West End theatres and shopping in Knightsbridge. Walk around Bond Street, a high-end shopping street which is home to designer stores, precious jewellers and auction houses like Sotheby’s and Christie’s. Visit the Buckingham Palace for some sightseeing. Wine and dine like the British aristocracy of old, shop till you drop in Mayfair’s glossy boutiques or hook yourself a trout supper in the rolling green of the countryside.

Inimitable, incomparable and unforgettable – from a stroll along the River Seine or the Champs-Elysées to shopping and lunch on the Boulevard Saint-Germain, Paris has it all. Stroll around Arc de Triomphe, which was erected by Napoleon as a tribute to his own glory at the head of the Champs Elysées. Visit the Eiffel Tower, a true symbol of Paris. Views are breathtaking from any point on the tower. On the second floor, visitors may enjoy dining at the renowned Jules Verne restaurant. Get lost at the Louvre, the world’s largest museum, which houses French, Italian, Spanish, Flemish and English artefacts from the Middle Ages through the 18th century. The Mona Lisa resides here as well as some of Vermeer’s very rare paintings. A separate wing has fabulous antique collections from ancient Mediterranean civilizations. At night, the facade, courtyards and I. M. Pei’s famous pyramid are all beautifully lit.
