Cambridge Second Most Expensive UK City For Short Break

Cambridge has been named as the second most expensive UK city for a short break.

Tripadvisor carried out a survey, comparing the cost of two people having a one-night stay in a four-star hotel in the month of August, with the overall cost figure including a pre-meal cocktail, a meal out and a short taxi ride.

The figures suggest cambridge would cost £278.

According to the survey, Sheffield is a real steal when it comes to a value-for-money short break.

The Yorkshire town offered the best bargain one-night break among 20 UK cities surveyed, with Edinburgh proving the place that would set visitors back the most.

The total cost for Sheffield was £154, with the next least-expensive city being Birmingham (where the cost was £166) followed by Cardiff (£173), Newcastle upon Tyne (£176) and Bristol (£180).

Contrastingly, the cost in Edinburgh was as much as £331, with the hotel alone costing £233. The next most-expensive city was Cambridge (£278) followed by London (£268), Oxford (£256) and Bath (£240).

Sheffield has taken over as best-value city break destination from last year's number one Nottingham which slid to eighth in this year's list.

TripAdvisor spokesman James Kay said: ``For travellers planning a UK break over the upcoming bank holiday weekend, heading north will generally offer the best value for an evening out and overnight stay.''
