21 things you didn’t know about London
In recent years, the popularity of London city break has gone from strength to strength. It seems that millennials are doing away with the week beach break and instead favouring three days in one of the world’s great metropolises.
As you can see from this post from UK travel association ABTA, statistics now show that they are in fact as popular as beach holidays.
It’s really not hard to see why either. With more cheaper flights than ever and budget accommodation via Airbnb and other services, city breaks can prove to cost very little.

It’s pretty easy to see why too. London is both a city with a wealth of history and also bucket loads of contemporary attractions.
