Golden age glamour against a skyline of modern luxury await when you choose your holiday in Hollywood. Welcome to the exclusive world of glitz, allure and silver screen stardom. It’s the beating heart of the most reputable film industry in the world.

Hollywood is home to untold amounts of showbiz and glamour and it’s where the biggest stars got their big break. Actors and actresses have been drawn to this West Coast county, dreaming of entering the 1920s Golden Age of Hollywood and all the sparkly stardom that came with it.

Film fanatics will love walking the steps of acclaimed movie stars on the glittering Walk of Fame. Fashion lovers will have a wealth of stores to admire on the glamorous Rodeo Drive, where there are more than 100 designer and boutique labels to appreciate. Elegance, glamour and luxury are central to Hollywood’s fashion world and you won’t need long to slip into the style here. Sip on expertly made cocktails in one of the many swanky, retro bars, or dance the night away at nightclubs roped in red velvet. Holidays in Hollywood are perfect for couples, families and solo travellers who want to enjoy the finer delights of life in a postcard-worthy setting.

Hollywood holidays: enter the city of dreamers

Hollywood holidays offer more than luxury, fine dining and twinkling rooftop views. There’s plenty for nature lovers to enjoy too. Catch early views of the shaded Downtown skyline that stretches far out to the ocean. Set eyes on the majestic Hollywood Sign from Sunset Boulevard.

Get a head start on the day and brave a morning hike through the art deco icon, Griffith Park. Among a mosaic of oak trees, you’ll get an immense view of the famous sign from here too (you might also spot some A-listers as many of them like to unwind here). Stroll through the Walk of Fame and see 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard embedded with immortalised honours for the stars, including fictional characters like Snow White and Mickey Mouse.

Dedicate a day to exciting adventures at the world-class Universal Studios Hollywood - it’s where your favourite TV stars and characters come to life through interactive displays and exhibitions. Go behind the scenes and discover the Studio’s inspiring 50 year timeline from when film had no audio to the lifelike cinema Hollywood gives us today. You can also celebrity spot at Wilshire Boulevard where the famous Pretty Woman was filmed. Rest your feet on one the Hollywood Trolley Tours and cruise around the city for up close views of The Hollywood Bowl, Paramount Studios, Melrose Avenue and more. Catch an iMAX movie or go on a VIP tour of the most iconic movie palace in the world, the TCL Chinese Theatre.

Hollywood is home to the most famous live entertainment venues and year-round high-profile screenings. No detail is left untouched here - watch the latest cinematic innovations from inside an audience chamber crowned with a silver leaf tiara at the striking Dolby Theatre, home of the Oscars. Complete your trip with a visit to San Francisco and explore the bridge between cultures. We’ll create the perfect bespoke multicentre holiday for an unforgettable getaway.

Martyn, Destination Executive

“Seeing the city from inside Griffith Park is fantastic and you can get one of the best views of the Hollywood Sign too for that perfect photo. It's free to enter and easy to get to if you have a car but there’s also a frequent bus service.”

Tejal, Destination Specialist

“Despite what you see in the movies, it’s no longer possible to hike up to the Hollywood sign. Instead, enjoy the fab views of the sign from almost everywhere in Downtown LA.”
