City Breaks

The UK has the good fortune of being just hours by air from dozens of world-class cities, so we get it: your weekend getaway game is on-point. But jetsetters ready for a trans-Atlantic city break need look no further than Boston. Grab a flight on a Friday and a few short hours later, you’ll be in the thick of Boston’s heritage, history and classic good looks, hopefully enjoying a lobster roll or developing an opinion on who makes the city’s best chowder. With Logan International Airport located right within city limits, it’s go-time as soon as you land, which means more time for strolling the public gardens and exploring among the brownstones. Take in amazing views from the harbour to Harvard. From swanky lodging in reimagined spaces and bespoke cocktails everywhere you turn, to Newbury Street’s eight blocks of pure, unadulterated retail therapy, a city break in Boston certainly breaks the mould. The only question is – what to do first?
