South west town and city breaks

If you are considering taking a city break in the UK then chances are you are looking at the like of Liverpool, London, York, Edinburgh etc. Whilst the south west is best know for its gorgeous rolling countryside and numerous coastal resorts, the towns and cities here are wonderful destinations for a short break as they have so much to see and do that you have problems fitting everything in depending on how long you are staying for.

They offer an eclectic mix of heritage and fascinating history blended with a contemporary flavour that makes them quite unique. Poole, Bath, Bournemouth, Salisbury, Bristol, Gloucester, Newquay, Swindon, Torquay, Exeter and Plymouth are just some of the destinations waiting to be discovered, and the fact they are located within such close proximity to everything else the south west has to offer means that you can incorporate several elements into your stay.

With accommodation ranging from top end hotels to cosy guest houses and even apartments, you will have no problem finding somewhere to stay that suits both your needs and your budget. If you don’t fancy driving down then the main budget airlines offer flights from regional airports into the south west, and there is also the option of taking the train. Wherever you decide to go, and however you choose to get there, a town or city break in the south west will be one you remember for many years to come.
