Often considered the friendliest county of the UK, North Yorkshire is a great place to live and visit. With a huge handful of cities providing superb family attractions, nestled neatly in amongst the stunning Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, it offers the best of both worlds.
You’re heading into the Big Smoke with the children? You’re in for a thrilling trip! The capital is a hustling, bustling adventure for all ages, that’s for sure. Zipping around on the underground is certain to excite, and the fun’s only just starting.
Whether you live in Manchester, Salford, Trafford, or nearby cities, such as Bolton, or you’re visiting the area with your children, you’ll find loads to do in the North’s capital. With Man United tours, the central football museum and the Chill Factore and Vertical Chill Ice Wall near to Old Trafford, you could make a long weekend out of United match alone.
When it comes to seaside adventures on the northeast coast, there’s few to rival good ol’Great Yarmouth. A little calmer, and slightly more collected, than other nearby seaside towns, such as Skegness and Scarborough, Great Yarmouth is a fab choice of ‘staycation’ for families with small children.
But beyond seaside paddling, donkey rides, and sandcastles, just what is there to do in Brighton town? While you may as well make the most of the free fun on the beach, and embrace British seaside culture by enjoying fish and chips between arcade sprints, there’s also a tonne of attractions to add to your Brighton itinerary.
You may well want to pair your fun at the seaside with some top, quality attractions on offer. As well as the piers, arcades, and the prominent south-pier Sandcastle waterpark, there’s so much to do in Blackpool you’ll be spoilt for choice on how to spend your free time with the family. But never fear, I’m about to share five of the best itinerary-worthy local attractions.
The Tudor town of Warwick is one of the most charming areas of the UK to visit with your family. Sitting ever-so quaintly against the River Avon, Warwick is just a few miles away from the history-steeped medieval town, Stratford-upon-Avon.
Rather than running yourself ragged on your next trip to London, plan your itinerary a little differently. Maybe extend your stay if you want to do it all, or narrow down your to-do list, concentrating on particularly child-friendly areas within the Capital. London Southbank is a great place to start.
