Best City Breaks for Your 30th Birthday


Whether you’re looking for a weekend of culture, debauchery, escape from your responsibilities or lack thereof, or just a girls’ weekend away, these are the best city breaks to celebrate your 30th.

Porto is a paradise. The coastal Portuguese city is full of magnificent medieval and Baroque architecture and colourful structures.

Porto | For the love of Port Wine

Riga | For Lovers of Colour and History

Brussels | For A Quite One Enjoy a chilled weekend of waffles, chocolate markets and great open green spaces. It’s perfect for a laid-back solo trip

Krakow | For Back to Your University Days One You can spend a raucous night in the Jewish quarter Kazimierz, then revive yourself the next day at one of the many lovely cafes, before heading out to do some sightseeing.

Paris | For a Swanky Birthday Weekend

Amsterdam | For Good Vibrations Amsterdam is iconic; let go of all your work stress and cares, and just relax in a beautiful setting. You can smoke a joint or eat a ‘special’ brownie, and embrace the chill – if that’s your thing.

Nice | For Lovers of Sand, Sea and Sun The coastal French city is fashionable and sunny, with bright blue waters. For a bit of culture, visit Musee Marc Chagall and Lascaris Palace. Get pastries for brunch at the extremely Instagrammable Déli Bo.
