Guide to Luxury Holidays in New York

New York City has tons to offer and fitting everything into one trip would be nearly impossible. You can feel the buzz of Time Square, admire the Statue of Liberty or marvel at masterpieces at renowned art museums like the MET, MoMA or Guggenheim. A luxury holiday in New York is an experience you will want to repeat.

As the heart of the Big Apple, Manhattan is a natural starting point for exploring New York City. Amongst the towering skyscrapers, are some of the world's most visited attractions. Visit the thriving neon-lit Times Square, take a timeout in Central Park, tour the iconic Grand Central Terminal, or admire the view from the top of the Empire State Building.

Manhattan has also played an important role in America’s past. You can visit historically important sites like the 9/11 Memorial, Stonewall Inn where the modern gay rights movement began, or even Theodore Roosevelt’s birthplace. Or give your wallet a workout and head down to 5th Avenue, one of the most famous shopping streets in the world. End your day by grabbing dinner in Chinatown or Little Italy and then head to the Theatre District to see a Broadway show.

While you could easily spend your whole trip in Manhattan, New York’s other boroughs are well worth a visit. Just across the bridge from Manhattan lies Brooklyn, renowned for its artsy vibe and hip neighbourhoods. Explore the fusion-dining scene, and the boutique shopping across the district and then meet the animals at the New York Aquarium or Prospect Park Zoo, ride old-fashioned roller coasters at Coney Island, and snap a pic of New York's remarkable skyline from the Brooklyn Promenade.

New York City welcomes visitors all year round. Winter temperatures see lows of -3°C, with lots of snowfall, but this is a popular time of year to visit. At Christmas, you can ice skate under a massive Christmas tree at Rockefeller Centre, and on NYE you can see the famous ball drop at midnight.

Summer brings temperatures with highs of 29°C and is a great time for outdoor attractions, like Coney Island. Autumn and spring are temperate, and these seasons are when the city is at its prettiest.

British and EU citizens don’t require a visa to visit the USA, but to enter the country you will have to apply for a visa waiver online, called the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA). For more information on visas as well as general travel advice go to GOV.UK.

New York City boasts an incredible 72 Michelin-starred restaurants, making it a culinary paradise. At luxury hotels, you can sample New American cuisine – a cooking style that represents NYC’s vast diversity by incorporating influences and flavours from all the different cultures that call this city home.

After your meal, get a unique view of New York from a rooftop bar. Sit back and relax with a cocktail invented in New York like the Martini, Manhattan, Red Snapper, Cosmopolitan, or The Bronx.
