Top Easter break destinations only a plane or train hop away

The Easter break is a great time of the year to spend with your loved ones, it’s been a long winter with some pretty bad weather, so why not spend that time this April seeking out some sunshine or visit a new city and explore a new culture…

City breaks - perfect for all the family to celebrate the Easter festivity!

Season: Spring

The best times to visit Vienna are from April to May and September to October. The mild weather in spring and fall brings smaller crowds than in peak seasons. Vienna is a safe and welcoming city where history and culture meet.

Season: Spring
Travel time from UK: 2 hours +

Most who visits Paris for the first time probably has the same checklist of major attractions to hit: The Louvre, Notre Dame, The Eiffel Tower, etc. When it comes to romance, Paris has always left a special place in visitors’ hearts and soon, you could be one of them. Remember to carry some euros, most supermarkets and restaurants accept credit and debit cards, but having a few spare euros in your pocket is always a good idea, especially for those unexpected pit stops to the boulangerie (bakery). For outdoor markets, both produce or antiques, cash will also be a necessary commodity. You can always plan ahead and order euros online and have them delivered to your home with fourex, or simply visit one of our self-service kiosks located in St. Pancras International station before jumping on the Eurostar!
