Lovely Long Weekend Break Destinations

Easter is quickly approaching and this can be the perfect time of year to indulge in a long weekend break to somewhere fabulous. Here is Chapman Freeborn’s pick of egg-cellent long weekend Easter break destinations to inspire you…

Seville, Spain


Spain’s Andalusian capital city is drenched in history, having been one of the most important cities in Spain since ancient times. Visitors will find Roman ruins, Moorish and Gothic architecture and buildings dating back to the 18th century. It’s the ideal place to explore for those who enjoy history and culture.

Seville is also a haven for those who are craving some spring sunshine, as it’s one of Spain’s sunniest cities. In April temperatures can reach up to 24 degrees Celsius and don’t go below 10 degrees Celsius at night.

The Algarve, Portugal


Portugal’s sunniest region is a wonderful spot for a long weekend break at this time of year. Temperatures are warming up, and whilst it won’t quite be weather for the beach, you will enjoy sunny days with fairly mild temperatures.

There are plenty of lovely resorts and towns in The Algarve region to choose from. Opt for the hustle and bustle of Albufeira, head to golfers’ favourite Vilamoura, stay in laid-back Lagos or choose one of the smaller towns. Whatever you’re looking for from a long weekend break you’ll be sure to find it here.

Barcelona, Spain


There’s something for everyone in cool, cosmopolitan Barcelona. There are interesting museums, remarkable architecture, historic buildings and streets, a beautiful beach area, traditional tapas bars and plenty of amazing places to eat and drink. It’s a fantastic long weekend break destination for those who want plenty of things to do and see.

First time visitors to Barcelona shouldn’t miss the chance to see the Sagrada Famillia, the National Palace and the dancing fountains, the charming Gothic Quarter and Park Guell. Football fans also won’t want to pass on the opportunity to visit the Camp Nou, home to FC Barcelona and one of the largest football stadiums in the world.

London, United Kingdom


If you’re not perturbed by the chance of some rain during your long weekend break thanks to those pesky April showers, London is a great choice. The United Kingdom’s capital city has so much to do and see for people of all ages and tastes.

Architecture lovers can marvel at Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, the iconic Shard and more. Foodies will be kept satisfied in any of the seventy Michelin starred restaurants throughout the city. Those who want to shop until they drop will find boutiques, high street shops, high-end fashion houses and world-renowned department stores. And those who just want to relax and unwind will find plenty of places to do just that in the city too.

Each of these destinations are some of the most popular places Chapman Freeborn charter private jets to and from.
