Many cities also have Christmas markets to visit at this time of year, where you can purchase festive gifts that are really different to the normal things you can buy in shops. UK cities also have great places to stay, with a choice of every type of accommodation from designer hotels to traditional bed and breakfasts to self catering cottages.

If you want a bit of culture and festive fun over Christmas then a theatre break could also make the ideal Christmas treat. You can even book to see a pantomime, a uniquely British Christmas play that is great for children but fun for all the family.

So if you want to take your family away on a festive city break this year, what better place to go than Britain where you can enjoy all the Christmas traditions in familiar yet slightly different surroundings.
