Travel News From The Guardian
Featuring a wild west-themed break in Spain, a weekend in Budapest, the reopening of Tate St Ives and Singapore flights for £179, our budget travel ideas for October and November have arrived
October and November are still a little early to soak up northern Europe’s wintry charm (and most Christmas markets don’t open till the end of November/early December) but thanks to the city’s incredible thermal baths, Budapest will always be a great destination for getting warm and cosy. It’s among the cheapest city-break destinations in Europe, too, with a recent survey by No1 Currency estimating that a three-day break can cost £300, including flights. A Skyscanner search picked out flights from London to Budapest for as little as £52 return for a weekend in November. Book a stay at a budget boutique hotel, such as chic Brody House (rooms from around £60 a night), and wile away a weekend in the bathhouses. The art nouveau Gellert Baths feels like bathing in a palace and admission is £15, including locker use; massages and treatments start from £15.
