Edinburgh, Scotland

Flight time: 1 hour 35 minutes
For some post-Christmas revelry, head to Scotland for Burns Night (January 25). The country’s annual celebration of Robert Burns sees bars, restaurants and museums up and down the country lay on festivities in tribute to Scotland’s national poet (and author of Auld Lang Syne). Edinburgh is one of the best places to celebrate – head to the National Museum of Scotland to catch a performance or feast on a Burns Night Supper in various pubs. British Airways flies London to Edinburgh from £34 each way.

But you don’t have to travel far or fork out too much to do it – there are plenty of great value, short-haul flights (lasting anywhere from 30 minutes to three hours) to destinations that could help raise the spirits. Here’s our pick of the best.
