Your spring travel inspiration

The season of new beginnings is fast approaching and we can’t wait to spring into action after a cold winter spent indoors. If you’re like us you’ll be ready for some #springspiration and you’ve found the right place. Here are some city guides that’ll make your trip to London, Bath, Edinburgh, Glasgow or Dundee blossom this spring.

London

Alongside the blossoming trees, there are plenty of pop-ups in London. See our Guide to London Markets to enjoy a day of exploring the world-famous trading spots. In the evening, we recommend a visit to The Rooftop Film Club in Peckham. Films start at sunset so snuggle up under the stars and enjoy panoramic views of London’s skyline.

Rooftop of dreams.

Edinburgh

Spring is the best time to visit Scotland’s capital city. Not only will you beat the summer rush, the weather is perfect for exploring. The Royal Botanic Gardens are a must-see in spring. Just a short bus journey from the city centre, immerse yourself in 70 acres of stunning scenery and tranquil surroundings. See Edinburgh from a new angle if you feel like exploring afterwards. This post spills the beans on top sightseeing spots and hidden city attractions.

Glasgow

Voted the friendliest city in the world, and one of the UK’s top shopping destinations, Glasgow is famous for its charismatic ways, good food and live music gigs. If you love to laugh (uncontrollably) stay in March and experience Europe’s largest comedy festival – The Glasgow International Comedy Festival. Watch the city come to life as over 60 participating venues host top UK and international comedians for 18 days.

Dundee

If you’re planning a visit to Dundee take a trip to the city’s most distinctive landmark – The Law Hill. Just a nine-minute car journey from Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa, this extinct volcano was formed around 400 million years ago. At the top of the 174m peak, you’ll get breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the River Tay. This is the perfect place for a picnic in spring, see if you can spot Cox’s Stack, the tallest industrial chimney in Scotland, whilst you enjoy lunch.

After the perfect afternoon pay a visit to Yu Spa back at the hotel. Put your feet up in the herbal-infused sauna or treat yourself to a rejuvenating treatment from our Elemis experts.

Bath

The brand new Apex City of Bath Hotel opens this summer, and we know you’ll love this UNESCO World Heritage city. A place of true natural beauty and stunning architecture, Bath is top choice for a rejuvenating short break. Block in a two-hour slot for a tour of the famous Roman Baths and check out our post on 24 hours in Bath to make the most of your visit.
