Whilst a full two week decompression on a Thai beach having your feet massaged as you sip exotic cocktails might be the “in-an-ideal-world” solution, that’s not always possible – but there are still plenty of benefits for enjoying a bit of downtime nearer to home. Rather than letting the stress build up, scheduling a city break in one of the UK’s premier destinations allows one to unwind and enjoy all that the UK has to offer.
