Join our city trips #LPchat on Twitter!

#LPChat - city trips blog title

There’s something about experiencing the hum of daily life away from your own routine that makes city trips so unique and completely addictive. Wandering through bustling backstreets, breathing in a blend of scents and being immersed in the rich cultures of the planet’s urban areas are truly some of travel’s greatest pleasures.

To celebrate the art of city-tripping we want to hear about yours. Where do you stay? How do you dine? What sights do you scramble to see and what can you do without? We’re going to be discussing the ins and outs of wild weekending, big city breaks and everything in between in our new #LPchat this September.

Whether you’re a city visiting veteran or have a long list of capitals to tick off, join us on Twitter to talk about the architecture, food, culture and people that make up our incredible cities. We'll see you there on Wednesday 6 September from 4:30pm BST / 8:30am PST.

Our favourite tweeter will win a free city guide (book or eBook) of their choice!
