Your short break to Poland is affordable and within reach…

Two of the big draws with a break to Poland is it’s proximity by plane to the UK  – The cities of Gdansk and Wroclaw are only a 2 hour flight away from London AND the low price to visit – from under £100 per person for a couple of nights staying in 3-star hotel accommodation with flights*. The price of an alcoholic beverage is approximately 30% cheaper than home with a restaurant meal a fraction of the price of dining in the UK. *Guide price only

Visiting Poland Throughout the Year…

  • The beginning of spring in across Poland sees March as a rather chilly month. April is known as being rather beautiful as the weather starts to warm and plants start to bloom
  • Generally speaking May is really quite sunny and days are pleasantly warm – it’s incredible at how quickly the weather changes in Poland. Spring is a wonderful time to visit the cities of Poland and see the amazing museums, parks and historical buildings while it’s still quiet from tourists
  • June is perfect to visit Poland. It’s warm, days are the longest and the probability of the rain is low. The number of tourists is still quite low at this time despite temperatures in their low to mid 20°Cs
  • July and August sees Poland really basking in the heat of summer. Head for the nearby beaches of Gdansk and enjoy the sea at this time of year with waters being between 18-19°C or explore the riverbanks and old town squares of our other recommended cities for glorious food and enjoyable events and festivals
  • September is a good time to visit – it’s no longer as crowded and the still warm and dry weather is good for taking in the sights. You can feel that autumn is coming but it’s not so cold just yet. Much like the UK, October weather an be a little difficult to predict. Sometimes sunny and mild, occasionally wet and colder. November is actually pretty dry but with a real chill in the air. Simply wrap up warm and enjoy the cultural highlights of Poland’s cities with few crowds and at a cheaper price
  • Poland will see temperatures regularly around freezing in December, but the buzz of the festive period is such an incentive to visit during the month. January and February are the coldest months of the year so why not take the opportunity to frequent the many bars, taverns and indoor attractions and enjoy the occasional snowfall
