Reasons to visit New York

Explore Central Park

Central Park is New York City’s metropolitan oasis. Stretching across 800 or so acres, this vast green space was designed in 1853 and features regular concerts, yoga classes and guided tours – as well as providing the perfect place for a stroll.

The landscape transforms from season to season in Central Park, from the dreamy amber glow of autumn to a picnic paradise in summer and blur of pink blossom in spring. Visit in winter and try open-air ice skating or check out the snow-capped turrets of Belvedere Castle.

Hungry for more urban escapes? Visit the quirky High Line park, created on a former railroad above New York City.

See the Statue of Liberty

A gift from France as a symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty is perhaps the most iconic sight in the city. Learn all about the origins of this world-famous statue by catching a ferry to Liberty Island from Manhattan.

Stopping off at Ellis Island along the way, you can soak up the views and immerse yourself in New York’s fascinating history of immigration.

Get up close to the statue to get a true sense of its scale. You can even climb up to the crown for breathtaking panoramic views of New York Harbour. Book in advance so you don’t miss out on tickets.
