With the recent launch of flights to Rabat from Stansted, British visitors can travel direct to Morocco's capital for the first time. Rabat is an attractive short-break destination, a city with historic sites and a wide range of both Moroccan and French restaurants alongside chic traditional and contemporary cafes.

Morocco's capital is the country's second Imperial City. Rabat has became the colonial capital under the French in 1912 which led to the development of the Ville Novelle with its wide, often palm lined avenues. The modern architecture belies its long history and the extensive historic and architectural treasures that reflects the transformation of the city over the centuries. Take in Roman Ruins at the Chellah, the Kasbah des Oudais (10th Century), the Souk el Ghezel the wool souk and foirmer slave market, the Hassan Tower (12th Century and the 17th Century palace built by Moulay Ismail and the Mohammed v Mausoleum (1960's) to name a few of Rabat's attractions.

Also across the estuary from Rabat is now easily accessible by the city's new tramway to Salé with its picturesque whitewashed medina which has some of the finest and oldest Arab monuments in Morocco.
