The Big Apple, the city that never sleeps, NYC. Whatever you call it, prepare to be dazzled!
Fly from London to New York - you'll find that whether it's an action-packed city break, romantic getaway, family fun or even a business trip you're after, the city's got something for everyone. Visit the iconic Empire State Building, or take a boat to the Statue of Liberty. Take a spin on the Coney Island Ferris wheels and catch a baseball game at Yankee Stadium.
Indulge in some retail therapy when you’re visiting New York and splash out at Macy’s or Bloomingdales. Not forgetting the night owls, who can take their pick from the city’s vibrant nightlife, from live music at Carnegie Hall to clubbing in the Meatpacking District. You can catch a flight to JFK or Newark airport with Virgin Atlantic.

Luxury breaks to New York
Take an Upper Class city break to New York and you'll arrive perfectly rested for whatever the Big Apple has in store for you. Indulge yourself with fine dining, enjoy a drink at the onboard bar or lay back on your fully flat Upper Class bed. Our New York city breaks begin with your Upper Class chauffeur driving you to your hotel.
After your holiday, once you have checked out, your chauffeur will drop you at the airport where you are invited to the Upper Class lounge. Here you can relax before your flight in luxurious surroundings. At the end of your city break your chauffeur will be waiting to take you home in style.
Yankees sure do like their breakfasts, so grab a morning treat. Whether that’s eggs in the West Village, pancakes in NoHo or bagels in Brooklyn, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Enjoy the sights of Manhattan’s West Side from one of the city’s newest attractions, the High Line. A converted 1930s railway line, it’s bursting with food vendors, sculpture and green spaces.
Visit a Greenmarket
There are hundreds of farmers markets, but perhaps the best known is the Union Square Greenmarket. Started in 1976, 140 regional farmers, fishermen, and bakers hold stalls in peak season.
Enjoy the sights
No cheap flight to New York would be complete without seeing Brooklyn Bridge. But for a different view, head to one of the many bars along the Hudson. The Beekman Beer Garden has a particularly spectacular terrace.
Take in the East Village
A hub of street art, quirky galleries and one-off boutiques, the East Village is a vibrant creative heart. It also boasts a wealth of fantastic restaurants and very lively nightlife.
