Beautiful and Buzzing
Not content with being staggeringly beautiful (Hollywood loves to film here, and a vast chunk of the city is UNESCO World Heritage Site), Budapest is absolutely buzzing with people in the best possible way. Whether you want to follow the story of Dracula, or indulge in a weekend of incredible spas and cafés, it’s all up for grabs in this fantastic city.

You can spend more on what you do thanks to Budapest’s clean, cheap and cheerful hotels. We have a selection of hotels with honeymoon suites, if you’re after something fancy, or self catering options, for you to jump head first into the Hungarian cuisine, or the ultimate city-luxe options. Each of our chosen accommodation is in the ideal central location and stunning views you can’t forget.
For a landlocked country, Hungary loves its water: wakeboarding is a hugely popular option for groups, while the private river cruises down the Danube are seriously gorgeous. Don't miss the palatial (and great-value) Széchenyi thermal baths. One of the largest natural springs in Europe, the 18 pools (both indoor and outdoor) are open every single day of the year, and you can indulge in an aqua or aroma massage, then kick back with a beer or a glass of wine.
If you’re feeling in a daredevil mood, then definitely try the quad biking, paintballing and bobsleighing just outside the city—one after the other, if you’re feeling suitably adventurous.
For something completely different (and incredibly joyous), Budapest Pinball Museum has over 130 machines. We challenge anyone to head inside and not scream with forgotten childhood excitement.

Budapest’s clubs are all pretty amazing, blessed with singular locations. Boat? Above an old spa shop? Dental laboratory? Tick. Tick. Tick. These are just a few of the city's wacky venues, each are as individual as the next.
Don't miss the chance to have a drink at one of the capital’s ‘ruins pubs’. These watering holes in the shells of gorgeous buildings act as bar, beer garden and club—some even hold farmers markets during the day. And for a singular rave, head to thermal bath spas after dark for one of their spa-rties!
If you’re in the mood for a Michelin star, we can organise the best seats in the house but don’t worry—it’s not priced as one! For a late-night experience, a glamourous mixture of 1930s with the buzz of New York Chinatown—eat upstairs before heading down to the secret bar—and for great food in an old-style Soviet canteen (and cruicially, delicious), is definitely worth a visit. On the wine front, make sure to enjoy the rich red Bikavér (Bulls Blood), and magical Tokaj pudding wine immortalised in Philip Pullman’s ‘His Dark Materials’ series.
