Idyllic Weekend Trips from London
Whether by train or by plane, London's easily connected to some fantastic destinations just a hop away.
Fortunately, whether you’re working out of the London satellite office, or on a long vacation there, you can see quite a bit of Europe in just a two or three days. That’s the beauty of its central location—a two-hour flight can put you along the Mediterranean Sea and a two-hour drive can bring you to the bluffs overlooking the English Channel.
Whether London is your home base, a frequent business destination, or a city you’re visiting for the first time, part of the international hub culture is to use all the direct flights out of Heathrow (and train routes from St. Pancras) to your advantage. If you’re looking for a luxurious, cultured mini-trip from London, DEPARTURES has a few quick itineraries that will satiate your quick-trip appetite. These seven destinations have history, art, and stunning hotels all begging to be explored.
