Trip Advisor say the best-value UK city break this August bank holiday is in Sheffield.

Sheffield, which claims to be the UK's greenest city, offers those looking for a three-night trip a £614 bargain, half the price of an equivalent stay in London which costs an eye-watering £1,331.

The south Yorkshire city is joined in the top 10 cheapest destinations by fellow northern powerhouses Liverpool, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Leeds, Chester and Glasgow.

Sheffield, the birthplace of well-known Brits such as Jessica Ennis, Jarvis Cocker and Michael Palin, draws in the tourists with cheap hotels and dinners.

In contrast, London tops the priciest list for several categories, including taxis, dinners and attractions.
