Holidays and City Breaks for the Brits in 2008

Mar 31, 2008
Spain is the most popular choice of holiday destinations for British citizens. While other destinations are growing in popularity at this time, Spain still remains at the forefront. In fact, among the top-ranked city break locations, Barcelona is topping the heap.

Statistics show that the British population begins booking their holiday travel plans approximately one month before they are ready to take their break.

Barcelona proves to be not only a cheaper destination, but also provides visitors with enough activities and entertainment to keep them coming back year after year. Some new destinations are starting to pop up that are attracting more and more Brits, including Dublin, Greece, Tenerife, and others. They are getting on the bandwagon that Barcelona has been riding for years.

Brits are starting to take notice of Prague, which is quickly becoming a popular place to book holidays.

Because of her rich historical attractions and cultural sites, Prague is gaining holiday travelers. Krakow is another hot destination that is getting busier with British travelers. This city offers enough to do not only for a short break, but an extended holiday as well. In simple terms, Brits are branching out to see more Easter European cities for new and fresh things to do.

So, whether you are interested in a city break (a short vacation) or looking for an extended holiday adventure, you are sure to find something great in places that are waiting to be explored by you and your family. For a city break, you might consider traveling to Barcelona, Rome, Dublin or Venice, which are a short distance for Brits to take a small break. For an extended holiday, you might consider Lanzarote, Sharm el-Sheikh, Cyprus, or Malta. These are the places most Brits are visiting this year.

Of course, if you want to stay home for the holidays, you might want to catch the British Travel Trade Fair in Birmingham. Here you can learn about all of the attractions located in the U.K. and Ireland. The event takes place annually and is geared to tourism in the U.K. and Ireland. Visit approximately 350 booths that showcase hotels, attractions, theaters, gardens and more, as possible holiday or city break locations.

In summary, Brits are still flocking to Spain for their holiday travels and city breaks. Barcelona tops the list as the most popular location for a city break with Rome trailing in second place. New places are starting to do their best to attract Brits, and their plans are working. Brits are starting to branch out to Eastern Europe destinations, such as Prague and Krakow. But, if you want to stay home and still have a great holiday, there are plenty of opportunities waiting for you in the U.K. and Ireland.
