New York

New York City's culinary scene, legendary theatres, and top-class nightlife make it a fantastic choice for your next city break.

We love NYC! And why wouldn’t we?

With its world-famous skyline, New York City (NYC) is split into five distinct boroughs - Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island and The Bronx - each with its own unique vibe.

Grab your camera or smartphone and jump in an iconic yellow cab to explore unmissable attractions, such as Times Square, the Empire State Building, the Guggenheim, the American Museum of Natural History and the Statue of Liberty.

NYC is one of the world’s ultimate shopping destinations. Whether it's looking through the rails of the designer stores on Fifth Avenue and in the gigantic department stores like Macy’s and Bloomingdales, or searching out bargains in boutiques, you will be able to shop until you drop.

Often referred to as a “concrete jungle”, you’ll be amazed at the range of outdoor activities that NYC has to offer. Take a stroll through Central Park, go kayaking on the Hudson River, relax in Brooklyn’s beautiful botanic gardens or enjoy the fun, sand and sea at Coney Island Beach.

The city is a foodie’s paradise, with thousands of stylish and quirky restaurants serving up dishes from across the globe, but don’t forget to leave some room for a slice of that famous New York cheesecake or a hotdog from a street vendor.

NYC is known as “The City that Never Sleeps” thanks to its abundance of nightlife. It has everything from dance clubs and rooftop bars to opera and concerts and everything in between. Visitors flock to see the star-studded theatre productions on Broadway or watch a Baseball Game at the Yankee Stadium, home of the New York Yankees.

The Big Apple hosts some must-see events throughout the year, including the St Patrick's Day Parade, 4th July Fireworks, the New York Marathon and the Halloween Parade. If you’re visiting near the end of November, you might be lucky enough to catch Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade with its colourful floats and enormous balloons.

NYC is also the ideal place for a magical pre-Christmas shopping trip. The city’s streets are decked in shimmering lights and department stores offer some dazzling displays. Wrap up warm and go ice-skating at the Rockefeller Centre with its huge Christmas tree glittering with 50,000 lights or enjoy some mulled wine while wandering around one of the many Christmas markets.

Just a few hours drive from NYC you’ll find Washington DC, home of the President of the USA. Why not plan a day trip or have an overnight stay there, taking in sights such as The White House, The US Capitol Building and the awesome Lincoln Memorial?
