Family breaks in the UK

Anyone who’s ever had to find five passports, pack four suitcases and soothe a crying baby whilst on a plane knows that, sometimes, a break abroad can be anything but restful. Which is why a British weekend break is such a great family option.

Just a short drive or train journey can take you a world away from your daily life – and offer a stimulating change of scene for kids of any age.

Breaks in Cornwall

One family weekend option that cannot fail is the seaside, and Cornwall’s coast is lined with family-friendly beaches and well served by ice-cream vans and cafés. Visit the fascinating Eden Project with any young dinosaur-lover too and you’ll earn more smiles than a year’s pocket money could buy you.

Breaks in Edinburgh

Tear the family away from the TV and games console, and let them discover the fantastic history that Scotland’s capital has to offer. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s not just the kids that will love exploring Edinburgh Castle, the Palace of Holyroodhouse and a warren of Harry Potter-esque mediaeval alleys.
