Short breaks and weekends in Paris

Paris is one of the most popular city breaks destinations in Europe and probably the most romantic city in the world. The Valentine weekend is always extremely busy and a testament to the romantic attraction of this top mini break venue. 

Paris is not just popular in the springtime, it is an all year round destination for visitors from the UK. The Eurostar connection from central London and a convenient flying time of around an hour from the UK makes Paris very accessible for a weekend or short break. It has a broad appeal whether you fancy a quick break for two, a party weekend or a celebration with groups of friends or work colleagues.

Getting around and siteseeing


During the day stroll along the banks of the Seine and visit the art galleries and museums. Visit the Eiffel Tower and take the lift to the top to experience fantastic views over the city (not for the fainthearted).

A good way to get to know the city is buy a ticket for the hop on hop off city tour buses, or for a more leisurely pace a journey on the Batobus is a great way to get around Paris by glass covered boats, stopping at many of the key sights. 

During your stay a list of places to visit could include; the Palace of Versailles, L'arc de triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sacre-Coeur Basilica and the world famous Louvre gallery.
