Why March is the Ultimate Month for a City Break
For us, March is perhaps the most misunderstood month of the year. Sandwiched between February with its Valentine’s and Pancake Day and April with all of the glamour of Easter, it’s often seen as the ’empty month’ where little happens.
But this is exactly why we think of it as the month of opportunity. The weather is on the turn, transport is a bargain, and the Easter holiday rush has yet to unfold. Here are our top reasons why March may be the best month of all for a city break.
Weather Picking Up
Although you may not hit the summer highs in terms of temperature, generally March tends to become a lot more pleasant than its preceding months. In fact, it’s the month with the lowest average rainfall of all – even beating June and July! Add to that the lengthening evenings and increasing sunlight, and you’ll realise that weather-wise March is one of the safest bets all year round for a city break.
Great Deals on Travel
Because March isn’t known as a busy time for travelling, you can pick up some of the best deals on trains and flights available all year. We’ve seen return Eurostar trips from Paris to King’s Cross available for as little as £40, and even return flights from Germany for just £35. If you’re UK based, you can find equally great deals: our favourite one to look out for is the £17 return trip from the capital to Brighton.
Beat the Crowds
In terms of busyness, a city break in March hits an ideal balance. Cities tend to be livelier and generally more cheerful than in the preceding months, but at the same time they feel more breathable. There’ll be seats available in the top restaurants, fewer queues for the city’s best attractions, and for those coastal city breaks you’ll get a healthy amount of sun and space.
