We’ve enjoyed a long and surprisingly warm summer this year, and we’re not prepared to let it go just yet, so we’re off on holiday.

Winter in England has always been infamously miserable – cold, dark and damp. The days get shorter, so we go to work in the dark and come home in the dark. And there’s rain, rain and, er, more rain. Depressed? Don’t be. Because we’ve found an escape route. Here, we give you the ultimate guide to winter sun getaways, and even include the flight time from London and average temperatures so you can tailor the perfect holiday to your tastes. Cos we’re nice like that.

2-3 Hours Away

Alagrve
Flight Time 2hrs 20mins
How Hot A comfortable 22°C.
Don't Miss Take the time to explore various corners of Portugal’s premier tourist spot, much-visited for its beautiful beaches and craggy coastal scenery. The summer crowds will have died down from all-out mayhem to a more manageable dull roar – and this is a good thing – but Lagos remains a must-do for its thriving nightlife and surfer scene. For something a little quieter, Monchique is a quaint little place with views over wooded countryside, and perhaps the most laidback hang-out remains Tavira, set along a placid river and with a history dating back to the Romans. The Algarve’s capital, Faro, has a medieval quarter well worth exploring.

Spain
Flight Time 2hrs 20mins
How Hot A manageable 18°C-22°C.
Don't Miss For equal parts beach time and cultural cravings, Barcelona cannot be beaten. From art to flamenco by way of fashion and food, the Catalonian capital will not disappoint. A walk down La Rambla is compulsory – the mile-long boulevard is alive with artists, human statues, fortune-tellers, dancers, markets and cute cafes. Spain is also a good bet for late package deals, owing to its pretty-much-guaranteed sunny demeanour. Check out updates on the TNT website for all the latest dirt-cheap offers.
