Here at National Holidays we offer city breaks to lots of UK and European destinations. Whether you want to go on a romantic city break to Paris or go strolling down the high streets of London – we have something  to suit everyone.

We have asked a number of our favourite bloggers to help us put together a small city guide to some of our most popular UK destinations.

We’ve asked Abigail, Natalie, Gary and Georgie to pick three of their favourite establishments in their city and tell us why they think they are a must visit.

The Blogger City Break Guide includes everything from small local establishments and charity shops, to fine gourmet restaurants and we absolutely love all of them!

Thanks to all of the lovely bloggers for helping us put the city guide together!

Check out the blogger city guide below and let us know what you think is worth visiting!

Brockwell Lido Cafe –

The beautiful Art deco grade II listed building in Brockwell Park is home to an outdoor swimming pool, fitness centre, and my personal favourite, a lovely cafe. If the weather is on your side try and nab an outside table and enjoy views of the lido. Inside is almost as good with prints by Peter Forsyth adorning the walls. They do great breakfasts and the focus is on fresh, quality ingredients.





Whirled Cinema –

This tiny venue is a real gem, tucked beneath the railway arches at Loughborough Junction.  They show a mixture of current, world and art house cinema, and the venue is also available for private hire. It’s a unique and intimate setting for film screenings, a welcome addition in this multiplex heavy city. Instead of overpriced pick n mix, Whirled allows you to order in from the pizza take-away next door!





Maltby Street Market –

I love this small friendly food market which occupies Rope Walk next to a railway bridge in Bermondsey. As well as the regular traders on Saturdays and Sundays there are more permanent fixtures in some of the arches including Bar Tozino, an excellent and authentic tapas bar.  For lovers of antiques the Lassco architectural salvage shop is a must visit whether you intend to buy or simply browse.
