The weather has been sweltering in the UK… No, you’re not dreaming! That’s why we asked around the Cornerstone office where to go to cool down! Wondering where the next best adventurous weekend away will be? Read on now!
COPENHAGEN – DENMARK
Copenhagen is beautiful! It’s one of those cities that many seem to recommend but few actually visit. It’s a trendy, charming and vibrant place surrounded by beautiful Scandi-European architecture, which really adds character to the place. If you take yourself as a bit of a foodie, we’d recommend visiting Torvehallerne Market which is home to fresh and local produce. Fancy some of the local cuisines? Try the Danish hot dog (gourmet pølse) from Pølse Kompagniet.

THE COTSWOLDS – ENGLAND
For a chilled and relaxing weekend away, head to the beautiful and quaint Cotswolds. An area of the UK filled with towns and villages that look like they’ve come straight out of an old British era. If you fancy a museum and art gallery, take a trip to Broadway and visit The Broadway Museum and Art Gallery. Set in a Tudor mansion, it showcases numerous pieces from local artists and writers. Afterwards, why not cap the day off with a visit to the local pub, the 17th century Horse and Hounds is a personal fave!

PARIS – FRANCE
Paris is the famous city of love and romance. So many historical and cultural places to visit with a partner over a weekend away. The Louvre is super interesting, filled with three wings full of the most famous artistic work. Not the artsy type? Take your partner shopping on the Champs Elysee for everything you may need, finishing up with the Arc de Triomphe for some spectacular views across the city.

SEVILLE – SPAIN
Picture yourself in the sun with beers and tapas at 2pm. It’s a brilliant city to go for cuisine and history and it’s one of the locations for one of the Star Wars films and Game of Thrones. Have a love for dance? This city is steeped in a history of flamenco, so take a trip to the Museum of Flamenco to see the eclectic styles of southern Spain and analyse the movements and postures of this famous dance, with the added extra of a flamenco show at the end. Ole!

GLASGOW – SCOTLAND
Glasgow throughout history has changed drastically. It has now become a cultural powerhouse of music, creative arts, theatre, design and innovative cuisine. An electric and architectural city, you can still see much of the Victorian era all around the largest city in Scotland. If you fancy a weekend break with a difference, Glasgow may just be it! Try the amazing Glengoyne whisky tour, kicking back with a wee dram of whisky in its homeland is something.
