Spring city breaks in Europe

If you're looking for a quick day trip or a short break from our Channel ports in Calais and Dunkirk, you're in luck! Brussels, the culinary capital of Belgium, tempts with its waffles, chocolates, and beers, whilst Lille boasts a charming old town and a vibrant cultural scene.

For a delightful 3-day spring break, discover the blossoming parks of Strasbourg, the medieval charm of Ghent, or the romantic castle ruins of Heidelberg. Each promises a unique experience.

Opt for a longer 5-day short break and indulge in the delights of these cities. Whichever you choose, an Easter city break guarantees sightseeing, delicious cuisine, and egg-citing activities!
