Check out some of the finest British cities to visit over the 2016 Easter bank holiday weekend, we’ve teamed up with Village hotels to give the best options.
If you are one of those people who loves a four-day bank holiday weekend then we just became best friends. We are fast approaching the Easter bank holiday and thought we would share some of the best British city breaks along with our favourite events. We have partnered with Village Hotels to bring you some of our city break highlights.
We were lucky enough to stay at a Village hotel and must state that the rooms are extremely comfortable and stylish, the power showers are really great for the beard and hair. Each hotel has free Wi-Fi so you have no excuse to miss the weekly edition of TheBeardMag (sign up here), free parking, Starbuck and the standard room service, with a smile of course. If you book direct through their website, you can also enjoy free access to their Health & Fitness club during your stay, watch this space for some more fitness tips from us! We can’t promise a beard pampering experience but they do have really friendly staff, just use the power of the beard!
