Save money on a city break by booking a stay at one of these top holiday rentals. Opting for a holiday apartment over a hotel will save you money per person and it means you can live like a local while you’re away.
City getaways make fantastic mini-breaks in the new year. Jet off to Rome, Florence or London to soak up the centuries of history, art and culture. Or turn your trip into a shopping spree or a romantic post-Christmas getaway.
With so many cheap flights on offer, European city breaks are even more affordable than before. You could even squeeze in a city stop on the way to your main holiday. And inviting friends or family along means you’ll each spend less on a shared city apartment or villa.

Thank you very much for your informative Review which helps other Holidaymakers and offers ideas of where to go and what to do. The River Taxi starts its outward journey at Riverside Park right by the new £2m Clubhouse ( and small Play area) however it will drop off by the Lodge on the return trip FROM Stratford if you ask the Captain. It runs 10am to 5 pm April to October and costs £2 per short, scenic trip into the Town Centre ( near RSC) £1 for children. We are glad you enjoyed the Lodge and found it spacious. Thank you, again, for writing us a lovely Review.
