Updated 3rd May 2021
Whether you’re looking for the trip of a lifetime or a little weekend getaway, city breaks have become a hugely popular choice in more recent years.

Here at Crown Bingo, we’re taking a look at some of the best destinations for city breaks. Whether it’s fine dining, famous landmarks or scorching weather you’re looking for - we’ve got you covered!
We’ve even managed to find some of the best locations around the world for you to get your bingo fix. From bingo pub crawls to the new craze known as Bongo’s Bingo, there’s plenty of worldwide bingo destinations for you to enjoy.
Though it was difficult to narrow them all down, we’ve hand-picked our top eight destinations for you. They are in no particular order, so have a read and see what takes your fancy!
The city of music, literature, and some beautiful countryside, and the capital of the Republic of Ireland, Dublin really is the place to be at the minute. Whilst known for being laden with history, Dublin is a popular city break location for both the young and old, a place to unwind during the day where you can also have a jolly good dance with a pint in the evening! The historic Temple Bar is undoubtedly the most famous bar to visit in Dublin, where you will find locals holding impromptu live gigs singing some of the traditional Irish folk songs. For spots to visit during the day, be sure to check out the Dublin Castle, join a literary tour of the city, or visit the popular Guinness Storehouse tour where you can get a picture of your face printed on your pint - random, but why not?!
Here at Crown Bingo, we have some of the best top online slot themes on the market for our players.

Take in the stunning sights of St. Mark’s Square, or head to the Rialto Bridge and watch as romantic gondola’s pass below you as the sun sets.

A popular budget city break choice, particularly amongst the younger generation, Amsterdam is the Netherlands’ capital filled with a hedonistic spirit and some of the most famous fine art galleries in the world.

There’s plenty of cafes to try out too, with the famous Bulldog cafe being a popular tourist haunt. Travelling around the city by bike is extremely popular, where you can easily rent out a bicycle for the entire day and zoom through the stunning streets.
Amsterdam is just another location where you can experience the extravaganza that is Bongo’s Bingo, but with a twist!

Like Paris, Prague also hosts a number of bingo halls in the city where you can play the traditional game of bingo in some of the most stunning buildings in Europe.
