Holidays in Philadelphia

Easily explored by foot, with most of the sights situated within a mile of City Hall, this big city has small town charm. Lose yourself amongst the modern skyscrapers, cobblestone streets and thriving financial district on city breaks in Philadelphia.

Sample the famous Philly Cheese Steak at one of the city’s eateries or tantalise your taste buds at the Italian Market. Catch an outdoor movie screening in the summer – grab a blanket and something from a food truck as the locals do. Or opt for a popular tourist activity and take a horse-drawn carriage from outside Independence Hall. If you can, watch a Phillies baseball game at Citizens Bank Park.
