New York has been pipped to the post by Paris as the number one place for a city break among Brits, says a new repot.

The French capital got more bookings than any other foreign city last year, reports Hotels.com.

Dublin was the third most popular destination, followed by Amsterdam, Las Vegas and Rome.

Long-haul destinations are falling in popularity, suggests the report, with many US cities dropping positions.

Meanwhile, the cheapest hotel accommodation was found in South East Asia.
