Top 6 destinations to travel to on a budget this Easter


Need a break this Easter? We feel you – you’ve been working hard at uni all term and are now in need of a little trip away before knuckling down to all that fun revision and coursework.

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered here at Liberty Living with our top six destinations for an enjoyable, relaxing and refreshing Easter break that won’t break the bank!

Be it a European city break or a trip within the UK, there’s something for everyone.


1. Paris




Less than an hour and a half away by plane, or just over two hours on the Eurostar, Paris is a gem of a city that’s just a stone’s throw away.

A visit to the Eiffel Tower, a wander down the Champs-Élysées and a trip to the Louvre sounds like the perfect Easter break to us!

Don’t forget the Seine River and Notre-Dame cathedral too!

£74 return (travel dates: 11/04 to 17/04)


2. Berlin




A beautiful and historic city, Berlin is the top travel destination for those interested in learning about European history.

You won’t run out of things to keep you entertained in Berlin; the city is full of amazing landmarks, from the Brandenburg Gate, to the Berlin Wall, and the Reichstag (the German Parliament building, which you can have a free tour of – just remember to book ahead).

£92 return (travel dates: 10/04 to 18/04)


3. Barcelona




For a bit of pre-summer sunshine and stunning architecture, Barcelona is the place to go.

Relax on Barceloneta beach or take a stroll off the beaten track through Raval, home to the Museum of Modern Art (MACBA) and many seafood, wine and tapas bars.

At just over two hours away, Barcelona is very easy and affordable to get to – sounds good to us!

£142 return (travel dates: 10/04 to 16/04)


4. Rome




A trip to Rome is a good shout if you enjoy pizza, pasta and ice cream (who doesn’t?), as well as visiting world-famous landmarks.

Home to the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain, Rome is a treasure trove of ancient Roman history, with stunning architecture everywhere you look!

£135 return (travel dates: 18/04 to 25/04)


5. Brighton




You don’t need to be jet-setting off to Europe to enjoy a lovely Easter break; there are some picturesque places to visit right here in the UK.

Brighton is definitely on the must-travel list with its famous pier and beach, as well as museums, art galleries, and a range of beachfront independent shops and cafés.


6. Lake District


Lake District


England’s largest National Park, the Lake District, which is also now a World Heritage Site, offers spectacular scenery and a truly refreshing break away from the hustle and bustle of student life.

You can switch off from deadlines, essays and exams for a few days by exploring the incredible lakes, forests and mountains … anddd breathe!
