Edinburgh’s really easy to get to by train and the fun starts as soon as you arrive. Enjoy a tasty afternoon tea, walk up to the castle or do some serious shopping on Prince’s Street, then get dressed up for a fun night on the town.

For a relaxing break with plenty of pampering, a visit to Cheshire will leave you feeling blissful. Head to one of the many luxury spas and spend a few days unwinding with mani/pedis and back massages. If it’s good enough for the Real Housewives!

If you’re looking for a super glam weekend then Liverpool is just the place. Make like the locals and get your hair and nails done, then head into the city for a night out you’ll never forget. There’s something for everyone, from small quirky bars to celebrity-hotspot nightclubs.
Top tip: Liverpool was the Capital of Culture in 2008 and there are loads of museums and galleries to discover too.
When it comes to amazing food, iconic landmarks and unforgettable nightlife, there’s nowhere quite like our capital city. Soak up the atmosphere on the South Bank, catch a show in the West End and hit the shops on Carnaby Street.
Top tip: Hunt down the latest pop-up restaurant for an exciting dining experience.

Bristol is London’s cooler, alternative sister – it has all the buzz of the big city but with a chilled out, laidback vibe. Go watch a gig in an underground bar, take a boat across the waterways and go graffiti spotting. Don’t forget to Instagram!
Top tip: Climb the staircase at Brandon Hill park for amazing views over the city.
