Bank holidays are coming thick and fast at the moment, and another is not far away. Fresh from the latest May Bank Holiday, we have just short of 2 weeks to prepare for the next one, so why not book a last minute getaway?
There are some great last minute deals on the market, with companies trying to fill hotels in the hope that the sun is shining and people are fancying a short city break. Booking.com is a great place to start as they have deals on hotels and flights to save you as much money as possible.
We have compiled our list of some of the places you can escape to this bank holiday courtesy of booking.com.
Where better to head away from a bank holiday getaway than the jewel in Italy’s crown, Rome. Draped in Roman history, Rome is the perfect place for those history enthusiasts among us with sights like the Coliseum and the Roman Forum to see during your stay. Not only this, but Vatican City is right in the heart of Rome housing some of Europe’s most incredible cathedrals and the Pope himself.
Fun fact: Vatican City is actually a country in its own right. Don’t worry though, you don’t need your passport to get in!

Amsterdam is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, and also one of the most accessible. There are some great deals on hotels and flights this bank holiday, so what are you waiting for?
There are some incredible sights in Amsterdam whether you’re a fan of art taking in the brilliant artworks at Van Gogh’s Museum, or a history lover taking in Anne Frank’s House, Amsterdam has it all.
If you have flights already, you can book accommodation through Booking.com, or alternatively take a look at what options airbnb have available.
Sticking to home shores, York is one of the best city breaks in the UK. From the stunning York Minster to the bustling shopping centre, York has it all and is perfect for families and couples alike. Draped in Roman history, take a walk down the cobbled streets otherwise known as the shambles and stop off at one of York’s many cafes and restaurants along the way.
The gothic architecture is spread across the city, and just adds to the beauty that this Northern city beholds. York is accessible from most cities in the UK. It is one of the best cities to visit by train. Check National Rail for all the latest train times and prices.
Barcelona is one of Booking.com’s most popular destinations in Europe, and it’s quite easy to see why. Known for its art and stunning architecture, it’s an ideal and cheap getaway this bank holiday.
If you’re looking for cheaper accommodation then there are hostels available, but Barcelona has some truly incredible hotels and apartments available from the city centre, to some of the smaller hamlets on the outskirts of the city.
There are some unbelievable sights to behold, from the Gaudi-designed La Sagrada Familia and Casa Batllo to one of the world’s most famous football grounds Camp Nou. There is something for everyone of all tastes.
Where better to head for a city break than the King of City Breaks, Dublin. Pretty much anyone you ask has been to Dublin at least once, so if you haven’t been before or are fancying a return leg then this is a great option this bank holiday. It’s not all about the Guinness Factory, Dublin does also have some amazing buildings and sights and gardens for you to visit whilst soaking up the sun that will hopefully be present.
In the evening you can head out to some of Dublin’s many bars on the high street and traditional Irish pubs tucked away in the backstreets.
