This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

February 15th from London Heathrow . 5 nights with virgin (hand luggage only). Half term, 2 adults 2 kids staying Sheraton 4 star. Flying virgin. Seems reasonable to me for £400 each. Never done Boston and whilst it may be snowing, very cold...may be worth a try. Expedia worked out cheaper than virgin holidays for me. Transfers not included. Extra for suitcases

Do ya like ahpples?
Boston public transport is great. Transfer by bus to the city is free. Highly recommend a trip and get yourself a Tatties breakfast or Kwoffy while you are there.
Long way to go for 5 nights
I've got more than a feeling that this Boston deal is going to cold unfortunately.

Called a city break.


A city break is usually a European country no more than a couple of hours away not a 7 and half hour flight

Your opinion of what constitutes a City Break or not doesn't detract from this being a good deal for the package involved. Well-spotted adiboy79
It's a very decent price, given how high hotel prices can be in Boston (though they are lower in winter). Personally, I'd not want to go for such a short trip (as well as the flight time, there's jet lag...) but others will.

This will mean a family of 4 in a not-that-big hotel room (not a bad size by Boston standards, but still) and it will likely be cold outside. Personally I'd see if any Airbnb places with more space were available, but you may end up paying more for lower quality accomodation...

Voted hot, by the way - a good price, even if it's something I wouldn't enjoy myself!
Yeah hot deal. Most people do new York, Boston similar cities in th states etc in 4-7 nights , no need for any longer. Great price
This a good deal, especially during half term and to America! heat added

Agreed! Been to New York several time for 4 or 5 days. Plenty of time(for my family anyway)....

Your opinion. A city break to me, is visiting a city...for a break. Not constrained to flight times...
Thanks. A great price for a school holiday break to America
Boston can be done in a couple of days unless you hire a car and drive 1-2hrs down to the Cape, see Salem etc.
Suppose you could spend a hour feeding nuts to the squirrels on the Common if you enjoy rodents running up your back etc

Hotels generally come in at the £200-£300 night price range most of the year from what I've seen (cheaper at Xmas).
Nice at Xmas. Rained first thing on Xmas Day last time I was there, and an hour later, loads of snow, so my first white Xmas. China Town opens around lunchtime and public transport isn't too bad on Xmas Day.

There are seasonal things like skating on the Frog Pond - although when cold, there's probably more ice on the footpaths around the pond in Boston Common than on the pond itself Seriously, the ice is lethal without wearing skates on some of the footpaths leading up to it!

Nice if you're a Fallout 4 fan and want to tour various locations from the game.....some exist; some in part; some don't.

Easy enough to pop to NYC if you want to visit there as well.

The Silver Line bus is free from the airport to South Station, but $2.75 return. Still cheap as chips.

An Uber from Boston Common / Tufts / China Town to the airport comes in at around $18, so possibly a better option if more than 2 of you with luggage.

The tourist trap of Mike's Pastries is probably worth a trip.
Good that they've got a Magnolia Bakery in Faneuil Hall now so you can get your $7-$8 NY cheesecake there Cheap place to eat simple food as well.
