The beautiful city of Bath is one of our favourite places to visit in the UK. Famous for its Roman baths and stunning architecture, the UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to our newest hotel and is the perfect place for your 2019 summer holiday. If you’re travelling with the full family, visit the world-famous Cheddar Gorge that’s less than an hour away from the city and is a great day out for all ages. Or if you come to Bath with kids, take a stroll around the Roman Baths to immerse yourself in the fascinating history. If it’s a romantic city break you’re planning, why not indulge in some Roman-approved pampering at the Thermae Bath Spa? With all of this to do and more, you’ll never want to leave!

When National Geographic names a city on ‘The Cool List‘ and Conde Nast Traveller calls it one of the best city breaks for 2019, you’ve got to go see what all the fuss is about. We can’t say we were surprised to see Dundee appear on these elusive lists – we’ve always been huge fans of the City of Discovery, and not just because it’s home to our Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa! With the V&A Dundee hosting the exciting Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt exhibition until September, Foxlake Dundee supplying all kinds of water sports fun and Yu Spa providing a cool and contemporary oasis of calm in the heart of the city centre, it’s no wonder Dundee is on everyone’s radar.


Often known as Edinburgh’s cooler cousin, the city of Glasgow is an excellent alternative destination for your summer holiday 2019. Perfect for a city break with friends or a romantic weekend away with your partner, Scotland’s friendliest city is famed for it’s lively arts and music scene and is jam-packed full of fun things to do in summer. From quirky beer gardens in the city centre to a world-renowned art gallery in the city’s West End, there’s always something going on. After you’ve taken in all Glasgow has to offer, head to Ashton Lane for a “wee dram” and soak up the inspiration for JK Rowling’s Harry Potter. Find out more about Glasgow breaks here.
