Of course. With Eurostar prices starting at just £69 return, Paris is the ideal city for a romantic break away.

Picture-perfect Bruges is only a 3-hour train journey from London. Jump on the Eurostar to Brussels and then an Intercity train to Bruges city centre.

Experience Amsterdam's relaxed and yet energetic atmosphere this Easter. There's so much to do in Amsterdam you won't know where to start. Visit the van Gogh Museum or Anne Frank's House for a spot of culture or history. Get a shot of you on the skinny bridge over the River Amstel - it appeared in Diamonds are Forever.Book your train to Amsterdam today, from only £116 return.
Is it French? Is it German? We like to think it's a bit of both. Nestled quietly on the French/German border, Strasbourg is a mere 4 ½ hours from London by train. Take a trip to the haunted cathedral and climb right to the top - the views of the city are amazing.Book your ticket to Strasbourg today from just £99 return.
This one definitely is German. Cologne is less than 4 hours by train from London and will charm the pants off of you. Its majestic Dom Cathedral is Germany's most visited attraction; dating back to 1248, it took over 6 decades to build and once boasted to be the world's most tallest building. It's not all culture though, chocoholics will simply love Cologne's Chocolate Museum.Book your London to Cologne train ticket today. Prices start from just £105 return .
