The UK is full of great family-friendly attractions. From cottages to coastlines, historical sites to adventure camps, the British Isles really do have them all.
To you’re struggling to pinpoint the perfect place in which to base your next British family holiday, then maybe the advice and information laid out below will help.
Consider a holiday park
The outdoor pools might not be warm and the sun might not be beating down throughout the day, but British holiday parks are sure to keep your family entertained throughout the duration of your holiday.
To keep the little ones happy (and wear them out a bit), there will be plenty of activities for them to get stuck into.
At most parks, you’ll find that the on-site team will offer exciting pastimes such as fencing lessons, horse-riding, crossbow shooting, and high rope activities.
Go scuba diving in Scotland
If your family love the water and a bit of history too, then, if you venture up to Scotland, you should definitely give scuba diving a go. Specifically, you should head into the water around the Orkneys, as, down the below surface, you’ll find the wreckage of the German High Seas Fleet.
Enjoy the beauty of a National Park
If being close to nature is your family’s thing, then you should certainly consider having a break in the midst of a National Park. If you’d particularly like to enjoy a costal park, then Pembrokeshire’s Bluestone should be where you head to.
Full of picturesque views for you and the other half to take in and golden beaches for the little ones to frolic about on, a visit there would be full of relaxation and enjoyment.
Experience the West End
Take the kids to London’s West End and they’ll be sure to have the time of their young lives. The thrill of the city will live with them forever, and the laughs they’ll experience when they see shows like Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre and Rumpelstiltskin at the Queen Elizabeth Hall will probably enthuse them for months on end.
You can find cheap London theatre tickets on sites like Encore Tickets, so you wouldn’t even have to break the bank to enjoy this particular break.
Stay at a theme park
For families that love to experience a bit of adrenaline, a theme park stay is very much recommended. Whether it’s Drayton Manor, Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Legoland, or even of the other theme parks dotted around the UK, you, your partner, and your kids will be sure to enjoy yourselves.
If you go around Christmas, bonfire night, or Halloween time, you’ll even be able to enjoy all of the themed attractions. If you’re looking into planning a UK break for your family in 2019, make sure to consider all of the places and experiences listed above.
You could, if you had the time, enjoy them in all in one, long British road trip. That would be quite the experience, wouldn’t it!
