Stockholm is a magnificent island archipelago just waiting to be explored... with crisp (if chilly) weather, fabulously quaint boutiques, endless cobbled alleyways, warm, welcoming restaurants and – naturally – amazingly attractive people of both sexes. What’s not to like?

Take a healthy stroll along Strandvagen in search of the Vasamuseet... a whole museum dedicated to the warship Vasa... a complete, fabulously rescued and restored 17th Century fighting machine that originally sank on its maiden voyage...
Must eat at:
Berns, in the centre of town, has been a Stockholm institution since the 1860s, and was given the full Conran treatment over 130 years later. Although it’s now ultra-chic, it still has its original golden walls, vaulted ceiling, chandeliers... the works.
Must be there for:
Although not a public event, Nobel Prize day in December is the day to be in town, even if it’s just to soak up the atmosphere, as the prizes for literature, physics, chemistry and economics are awarded at the Stockholm Concert Hall.
- Stockholm’s Arlanda airport is now connected to the city via an ultra-smooth express rail link – just follow the signs in arrivals.
- The old town, Gamla Stan, is the perfect place for a long romantic lunch, a bit of traditional shopping, and a touch of sightseeing all in one place.
