Belfast emerges as value for money city break destination

Brits should consider travelling on cheap flights to Belfast if they want a cheap weekend break.

This is according to the Belfast Visitor & Convention Bureau, which highlighted that Northern Ireland’s capital is home to a wealth of free attractions for visitors.

Fiona Ure, the bureau’s communications executive, said that a number of low-cost airlines operate flights to Belfast from the UK’s regional airports, which make the city "a handy and affordable weekend break destination".

"Belfast is a compact city, easily navigated on foot – and visitors using public transport can save money on the city’s Metro bus service and rail services with travel cards such as Smartpass and iLink," she explained.

Ms Ure went on to say that Belfast boasts "an extensive range" of accommodation choices from B&Bs to hostels and self catering options to hotels.

Belfast’s accommodations came out on top in hotel.info’s recent Value for Money Index, beating the likes of Bournemouth, Manchester, Glasgow and Liverpool.
