Seattle Autumn & Winter City Breaks – the Future is NOW!

Posted August 23rd 2017 in News and Updates,

Truly memorable city breaks depend on finding a destination on a rising curve, before it becomes overwhelmed with visitors like Venice and Dubrovnik.  Seattle is now THE city, with new hotels, new direct flights from the UK and a zest for life which resonates year round. Non-stop flight times to Seattle this autumn and winter with British Airways and Virgin Atlantic from Heathrow, and Norwegian from Gatwick, are shorter than flights to Miami, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Seattle is now a serious player in the city break market.
