Things to do on a rainy day in the city

Winter is one of the best times of year to get away so here you’ll find some things to do on a rainy day during your city break. It’s when you crave time away from your desk, and make the most of your weekends. This year, we’re encouraging you to “Embrace the Great Indoors” and take a break away from home, without the bad weather hair. We love the idea of staying in bed all day, or wrapping up warm to wander around indoor attractions. We’ve picked a few of our favourite ways to spend a weekend when the weather doesn’t deliver.

Treat yourself

It’s hard to beat a spa day. It’s time to reconnect with your true self and catch up on relaxation. Dundee is the perfect place to retreat to – within a 90 minute drive of anywhere in central Scotland, you’ll get there in no time. Come Monday, you’ll feel like you’ve been away forever. Yu Spa offers all the Elemis treatments you can think of and a quiet, tranquil pool area with sauna, steam room and hot hubs.

DIY treats

Can’t get to Dundee? Create your own spa day in the hotel instead. From breakfast in bed, to a long bubble bath using Elemis toiletries, followed by a day in your bathrobe and slippers watching Sky movies – what more could you ask for? Finish the day with room service or treat yourself to dinner and drinks in one of our restaurants and stylish lounge areas.

Venture outside

If you’re staying for more than one night, you might want to get out and explore. Our cities are full of things to do when it rains. From indoor activities in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee, to nights spent in the theatre watching comedy or musicals, you’ll find lots of new things to do during your winter break.
