48 Hours

Whether you’re just passing through or making a weekend of it, we give you the 48-hour lowdown on cities across the globe.

  • Los Angeles North America, USA,

    Over the Atlantic to Los Angeles, California’s star-studded city, where dreams are made and crushed in Hollywood studios and every restaurant worker acts on the side. Blonde beaches and hills with cinematic views lend themselves to open-air pursuits, while the neighbourhoods on the outskirts of town are home to indie galleries and cafés that are perfect for mooching.
  • Bruges Europe, Belgium,

    Next we head to Bruges, the best-preserved medieval city in Europe. Cobbled streets expand into squares framed by timbered houses, delicate footbridges arch over green canals and candlelit bars beckon from every corner. Historic art peers out of the shadows of gothic churches and there’s also plenty of edible art, as the world’s best chocolatiers vie for your attention.
  • Bridgetown

    Follow the sound of calypso music and the smell of sizzling flying fish to Bridgetown, where locals are celebrating 50 years of independence from Britain. The people are as colourful as their pink and lemon-hued homes, from the fishermen who haul exotic seafood from the shimmering waters to the women who peddle it at the street markets. A whole host of cultural events and festivals are guaranteed to get you up off your sunbed.
