Destinations

Dublin: a graceful Georgian city with wide, open streets, charming squares and grand buildings, the Irish capital is famous for its literary history - writers Joyce and Shaw, for example, are celebrated in the Dublin Writers Museum. Sample a pint of Guinness in one of the many bars to befound in the Temple Bar area of the city; alternatively, visit the Guinness Storehouse, where, after a fascinating tour of the history of the black stuff, you get a free pint of Guinness in the rooftop bar, which has panoramic views of the city.

London: enjoy a bargain break in the capital thanks to hotels4u.com's superb selection of locations and deals on London hotels. Go shopping in Selfridges, browse the Old Masters at the National Gallery, take a spin on the London Eye, have a ride on one of London's new fleet of rental bikes, and end the day at a fabulous West End Show. With London hosting the 2012 Summer Olympics, now is the time to visit the capital and share the rising excitement as key venues take shape in readiness for the world's biggest sporting event.

Bruges: a city built on a network of picturesque canals, Bruges has been described as the Venice of the North. One of Europe's most stunningly beautiful cities, it's the perfect destination for a short break. The ancient heart of the city, with its winding cobbled streets, is ideal for a gentle stroll. There are plenty of atmospheric bars and cafes for a glass of beer or cup of hot chocolate. This cultural city has plenty of museums to discover and is famous for its chocolate shops and lace making. Take a ride through picturesque streets in a horse-drawn carriage or choose a canal-boat tour to enjoy the sights from the water.

Amsterdam: the Netherlands' biggest and most famous city is a treasure trove of delights for the tourist. It has fabulous art galleries (you could spend days simply devouring all those wonderful paintings by Rembrandt and Van Gogh). You won't want to miss the moving Ann Frank museum, which is housed in the very building where her family attempted to evade capture. Take a canal cruise and you can enjoy an onboard disco or a more sedate candlelight dinner. Also worth a visit are the Dam Square and Leidseplein, where you can find excellent restaurants and cafes.

New York: the Big Apple is hard to beat if you want a special unforgettable short break. Its sights are familiar from a thousand feature films and a million photographs: the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park. The department stores are unmissable, from Macy's to Bloomingdales via Barneys and Saks - plus the smaller fashion boutiques in Greenwich Village and factory outlet stores throughout the city. And where better to enjoy a stunning show than on Broadway: the Great White Way? Getting around the city is simple: the bus and subway system is simple to use and cheap; taxis are plentiful - but you will be surprised at how much you can see simply by walking around Manhattan - keep your eyes trained on the very summits of the old skyscrapers: the tops are often finished with surprising Renaissance touches of architectural fantasy.

Culture vultures Still in New York, if you want to see how the other half lived - and how many still live - you should head over to the museum district on Manhattan's Upper East Side - in particular, the section that runs from 59th to 96th streets, including Fifth, Madison, and Park avenues. …
