10 Last-Minute City Breaks From Edinburgh

Summer is here and with it arrives the annual stream of social media holiday pics making you wish you were anywhere but work. Fear not, whether you’re a little strapped for cash, used all of your holiday allowance or simply haven’t got around to booking something, leading serviced apartment provider Cuckooz has found 10 weekend break destinations from Ediinburgh all within two hours of the UK and with flights and hotel costing as little as £227 per person for a two night break.


Cuckooz picked 10 awesome city break options within 2 hours flight of Edinburgh and looked at the cost of flights for two people travelling from a Friday to a Sunday for the 23rd - 25th August (the English Bank Holiday) and the average cost of a hotel in the city centre, to find the cheapest options for a last-minute break away from work in the summer sun.

Brussels is the cheapest on the list, costing around £200pp. The flight comes in at around £151 for a couple with accommodation ranging around £248 for two nights. It might not be your first consideration, but the city is gorgeous and at this time of the year will be hot hot hot. Ideal for culture vultures.

Second on the list is our good pal Dublin. The total cost of a trip per person will be about £226 with flights at about £80 for two people. A bargain!!


Next up is Oslo in Norway - a little further away but still coming in at £230pp. Or how about my favourite - Paris? At £368 it is a bit more expensive but who wouldn't pay to spend a few nights in the city of love (hint hint Phil!)

Co-founder of Cuckooz, Fabienne O’Neill, commented: “A weekend away certainly doesn’t have to break the bank and even when booking something last minute and for a bank holiday weekend, there are some very awesome but affordable options available.
We’ve looked at the average cost of a hotel in each city centre, but there will almost certainly be accommodation that will cost you less.
The increasing preference of more experiential options like serviced and managed apartments also means there is a greater variety of places to stay above and beyond your traditional hotel.
By opting to go for something a little different, you can experience actually living in the city in a local neighbourhood, with better facilities and more space, and still have some spending money for while you’re exploring.”

So what are you waiting for? Get booking that last minute holiday sun and make us all jealous on Instagram!!
