Whether we like to admit it or not, summer is coming to a close, which means beach breaks might not be the top of your travel list right now. City breaks are a great alternative to escape for a long weekend, and we’re currently seeing return flights to some exciting European cities from just £18 return.

Choose from Gdansk (GDN) on the North coast of Poland, Bordeaux (BOD) in the South of France if you fancy your hand a bit of surfing; Dublin (DUB) for a weekend drinking Guinness; Oslo (OSL) for some Norwegian charm or Vilnius (VNO) in Lithuania for an authentic off-the-beaten-track experience.
