The Travel File: Chic Long Weekend Escapes

The Travel File: Chic Long Weekend Escapes

We’re well on our way into spring now, and with it comes a stream of welcome bank holidays. The collective euphoria as everyone leaves work with an extra day or two of weekend ahead is intoxicating. We plan to make the most of it with last-minute mini breaks and long weekend trips to chic destinations in the UK and abroad. Whether it’s a luxury spa stay in the Cotswolds or a city escape to Lisbon, you’ll find us cocktail in hand and dressed to the nines in our locations of choice. We caught up with four stylish Instagram tastemakers to find out where they’ll be going for the long weekend, and more importantly, what they’ll be wearing.

CHLOE PLUMSTEAD

"I visited Budapest last summer and it was the most glorious mix of history, architecture and good food that I could have hoped for. Walking up to Fisherman’s Bastion is a must to enjoy panoramic views of the city, and the famed Ruin Bars are well worth exploring once the sun sets."

"My favourite destination for a long weekend break is a spa break in Santorini. It provides the perfect mix of history, culture, great food and fun nights out and is only a four hour flight away. The stunning backdrops are Instagram heaven!"

EM SHELDON

"Barcelona is my favourite long weekend escape. It’s only a short and affordable flight away but is worth it for the tapas alone! There’s something about Barcelona that constantly makes me happy, it’s such a relaxed and vibrant place."

ANNA SHEARER

"My hometown London is my ultimate escape. I think it is the most beautiful city in the world. It’s a fashion capitol and ultimately the coolest city to visit for a long weekend away. Whether you’re visiting with a boyfriend or friends and family there’s loads to do, it’s bursting with the best clothing brands, bars, pop ups, events and music festivals. London oozes fun for me, I’m its biggest fan."
