Where would people recommend for a sort of 3-5 day break - city with plenty of culture/history/other stuff to see - other half and eldest daughter want to go away but daughter can't decide where she wants to go.    

Cheaper would be good - but not if cheaper means a mining town in the former Soviet Union.

Copenhagen are Prague would be my choices - though the latter would probably be much cheaper than the former.

Helsinki (with a trip to Talinn while you are there), or possibly Rome...

I like Prague too. Never been to Copenhagen. Münster is quite a nice city as well.

Edinburgh, unless you live in Edinburgh in which case maybe not!

Prague is lovely, Vienna another great option. If you bypass the sex and drugs (assuming that's not what you're after!) Amsterdam is a great city. Culture and history galore in all three.

I'd second this - I had a lovely week in Barcelona last May.  There's loads to see and do, and in May is was lovely and warm

+1 for Berlin. Can be done quite cheaply, too.

Love city holidays, Rome is tops for food and sights to see (and luckily I'm there later this week for the Marathon) for this time of year I'd maybe choose Madrid, most expensive I've tried has to be Copenhagen closely followed by Stockholm, for Christmas you can't beat Berlin, and for something totally different try Reykjavik

A friend of mine went to Marseille by herself last year and had a cheap and brilliant holiday. I think she used airbnb to find accommodation.

another vote for Barcelona. It's a city that's all beautiful, not just in parts

+1 for Rome.

I took my son there for a 4 night stay last year for half the price it would have been to stay at Lego Land in Windsor.

Madrid, no question. Was there April time last year and good weather, lots of art/history and fantastic food and drink if you're looking for that too!

+1 Istanbul, fascinating and spectacular city. Views of the Bosphorous with the city as a backdrop take the breath away.

Prague and Istanbul both get my vote!
