We think that being able to relax on holiday and get a break from every day work stress is really important - which is why we were shocked to find out that one in 20 holidaymakers who took part in our recent survey check their emails as soon as they wake up every day, with four in 10 regularly checking their work accounts while they’re away.

In honour of Afternoon Tea Week, we've rounded up our favourite traditional high-tea venues around the world, because there really are few things us Brits like better than a cuppa and a slice of cake, right? Throw in some sandwiches and a scone or two and you’ve got one sweet (and savoury) combination that’s impossible to resist. So if you find yourself searching for a china teapot and a platter of posh cheese sandwhiches while on your beach or city break, sink your teeth into our delicious discoveries below...

If you're feeling as inspired by this incredible weather as we are, then you'll want to spend as much time soaking up the sunshine as possible, right? If you can break away from your desk for an hour or so, an al fresco lunch is highly recommended (with a side of suncream, naturally), but this also got us thinking about our favourite outdoor spaces a little further afield... Whether you want to wind down among lush vineyards or watch the world go by in a buzzing city park, we've cherry-picked 7 of the best spots to take your picnic basket too. Better still, why not book a last minute break to one of these gorgeous destinations and enjoy lunch somewhere a little different this week?

As the spring ushers in warm, sunnier days, nature blushes in a heavenly pinkish glow. Yes, we’re talking about cherry blossom. Springtime marks the blooming of cherry flowers and when it reaches mankai (full bloom), vibrant pink and white hues fill the air. We’ve cherry-picked (pun intended!) the best places around the world to see cherry blossom if you fancy seeing this spring spectacle for yourself.  But remember, the flowers bloom just for a week or two, so you'll need to time your visit accurately – our cheap last minute holidays ensure you’ll be soaking in the views in no time!

If the Statue of Liberty, Times Square or Central Park weren’t enough, there’s one more reason to jet away to New York this holiday season. An unmissable tourist attraction in the Big Apple, the Empire State Building has recently unveiled a new nightly light show – set to take the New York skyline to the next level!
