So if you’re planning a European trip this spring, where’s best to go?
The capital city of the UK is easily one of the best places to visit in Europe. Spend your time seeing musicals in the iconic West End, marveling at the exhibits in the world-class British Museum, hearing about the history and stories behind the Tower of London and indulging in fish and chips at a local pub. Make sure that you put the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, and Madame Tussauds while you’re there. If you’re making a flying visit to the city, a London bus tour is the best way to make sure that you see all the sights in a short amount of time.
While it may not be on mainland Europe or part of the EU, Russia is definitely worth the visit. Travel from Moscow to St Petersburg by high-speed train and enjoy the stunning scenery along the way, and make sure that you do everything that’s on offer in either city; there’s shopping, tourist attractions, architecture, parks, stunning walks and so much more on offer.
If you’re looking for a romantic break away then you really can’t go wrong with the city of love.

But you don’t have to go with your significant other; it’s a fantastic relaxing break for anybody.
