​The Best City Centre Apartment Breaks in the UK

There is so much diversity, culture, architecture, history and fun to be had in cities throughout the UK. If you are considering investing in city centre property with a view to letting out to short term tenants or tourists, or you are looking for serviced apartments to provide you with the ideal short term home from home, we’ve put together a list of some of the best city centre apartment breaks in the UK.

Bath – This Georgian masterpiece of a town (including Royal Crescent) feels like it’s from a different world. Visit the Roman baths and other monuments from that period, or soak in the only natural thermal waters in the UK. Bath also offers historic cycling routes through former train tunnels and stunning parks.

Belfast – A city that has reinvented itself in recent years, Belfast provides several interesting tourist attractions, from the Titanic museum, to the Ulster Museum and Botanic Gardens. It is well worth taking a guided tour to visit the murals in this still divided city. The stunning Giant’s Causeway is a near hop away.

Birmingham – The second city has more belief than ever before, and is home to some amazing shopping opportunities, with plentiful distinct areas for everything you could need. Both Chinese and Indian cuisine
of the highest standard can be found here, along with large parks for early evening walks.

Brighton – A truly exquisite part of the UK, the South Coast of England provides a wonderful climate compared to the rest of the country. A quirky, eccentric town that is above all else, fun, Brighton offers the world’s oldest aquarium, the iconic pier and Royal Pavilion as well as cool nightspots along the beachfront. 

Bristol – Bristol is truly stunning to behold, especially on a bright sunny day. A hub of activity can be found in the city centre and along the harbour, where the SS Great Britain sits. Bristol Zoo offers a family-friendly day out, and the Clifton Suspension Bridge is a modern marvel.

Cardiff – The Welsh capital is self-assured and offers visitors a chance to experience a city centre castle of high repute, the rejuvenated Cardiff Bay that offers a pleasant area to walk around and a city centre stadium with year-round sporting and musical entertainment. It’s a small, friendly city that has plenty of character.

Edinburgh – The International Festival and Fringe festival bring culture, artistry and laughter to this great city every year, but there is plenty to do aside from that. Take guided tours of fancy cuisine, enjoy literary-themed pubs and whisky distilleries, as well as visiting Edinburgh Castle and the magical Camera Obscura.

Liverpool – There is so much to see and do in this city on the Mersey, with visitors finding it a friendly city with stunning riverside architecture, a vibrant nightlife and a thriving new music scene rubbing alongside the amazing Beatles tours and exhibits to visit from Mathew St to Penny Lane and beyond.

Manchester – This city has fully embraced its industrial past, with a wide range of galleries and museums to be found within its boundaries, from the Science and Industry Museum to the National Football Museum. Manchester is full of great food and sounds, a community feel in a large city.

Newcastle – The 'Geordie' people are well known for knowing how to have a good time. It is a city that is a beacon for hen and stag parties from the entire country, but it also offers great cuisine, interesting museums and access to a range of iconic architecture and art within the region, including the 'Angel of the North'.
