Majestic Marrakech

As the Red City of Morocco, Marrakech is a destination that brings colour and life into any holiday. With the aromatic scent of spice filling the air, scenes of labyrinthine souks ready to be explored and stunning, verdant gardens that complete the city’s appeal, Marrakech holidays are sure to bring a touch of magic to your getaway that you deserve.

Framed by the Atlas Mountains and close to Morocco’s western coastline, this dynamic city provides beauty in abundance, as well as cultural thrills and plenty of history. Culture vultures will thrive in the numerous museums, historic landmarks and infectious atmosphere, while lovers of nature will find thrills in the surrounding landscapes and unrivalled vistas – ensuring city breaks to Marrakech are full of things to do for all manner of holidaymakers.

A Magical Paradise

Marrakech has something to offer all types of travellers, from experienced jetsetters to city break novices. If you’re looking to stay in the hustle and bustle of the city, then you’ll want to be close to Jemaa el-Fna, Africa’s biggest square that is packed full with the most popular of stalls, the relaxing sounds of snake charmers and even the odd donkey and cart. The square is known to be at least ten times busier that Piccadilly Circus - Jemaa el-Fna is the heart of Moroccan culture and vibrancy.

For something a little quieter, consider Gueliz. As the modern side of Marrakech you’ll be able to enjoy the city’s upmarket shops and restaurants, as well as Place de la Liberté, a beautiful fountain. If exploring the city’s history is why you’ve visited, then there’s nowhere better for you to stay than around the Medina in Marrakech’s old town, rivalled only by the historic UNESCO World Heritage medina in Fez.

Ideal for a romantic break with a difference or a family holiday to treat all the senses, it’s really easy to get the very best out of holidays to Marrakech. For those who love to complete their getaway with a well-deserved dose of sunshine, visit Marrakech in summer. As a North African destination, you’ll be greeted with temperatures as high as the mid-30s and brilliant, blue skies. This is also a good time to head to the coast and indulge in some of Morocco’s fine beaches, with Casablanca a popular stop of beach bums, while the strips of sand in the modern city of Agadir are most certainly hard to beat.

More on Marrakech

Marrakech, sometimes known as Marrakesh, is a town built for exploring. Split into the older Medina and the more modern Gueliz – or 'new town', the Red city has an abundance of historic attractions to offer the discerning traveller.

The Medina provides cultural thrills, whilst around the outskirts of the city guests will find a beautiful backdrop to relax in.

By Day

The Jeema El Fna is the cultural heartbeat of Marrakech and is a must see when visiting the city. Explore the open-air market and its fascinating stalls where an exciting myriad of musicians, local artists and fantastic food awaits.

Elsewhere guests can escape from it all and experience one of the world’s finest spa cultures. Try an authentic Hamamm or head to a luxurious local spa for complete relaxation.

By Night

Marrakech is a city that comes to life at night, with the city’s medina an inviting cocktail of sumptuous food, exciting nightlife and vibrant atmosphere.

Head to the old medina district at night, where a mix of bars, restaurants and food stalls effortlessly cook up some of North Africa’s finest food and drink. Enjoy sipping mint tea, sampling authentic Moroccan food and watching a North African sunset.

Attractions

Part of Marrakech’s appeal is the city’s wondrous history and culture. The Jardin Majorelle is a slice of paradise in the city, with a fantastic walled garden that is perfect for both couples and groups.

Away from the city’s cultural highlights is a developing adventure sport industry. Head out to the Atlas Mountains which is around a 45 minute drive, and try your hand at kayaking, desert driving or even camel riding.
