New York often tops the list of holiday bucket lists due to the many essential tourist spots, quirky attractions and pop-culture connections on every street. Across the East River from Manhattan, Brooklyn has become a popular destination with travellers and holidaymakers who want to experience as much of the city on their New York holidays. While you won’t be able to see all of the Big Apple in one trip, we’d highly recommend heading over to Brooklyn via the Brooklyn Bridge or on the subway and dedicating a whole day to exploring the borough.

The diverse neighbourhoods, fantastic restaurants, art and culture have made Brooklyn an unmissable spot on the map. In this guide, find out some of the places we recommend checking out in Dumbo, Williamsburg, Brooklyn Heights, Prospect Heights and Bushwick. From our suggestions, you can create your own itinerary based on things you’d like to see most, even adding trips to neighbourhoods we haven’t mentioned such as Red Hook or Park Slope.
