Exploring the UK with the Family

Staycations and family breaks within the UK have been on the rise, and it’s no surprise as there is so much on offer when it comes to cultural and historic activities and attractions. A great option if you want to see what this beautiful country has to offer. There’s plenty to explore within the UK so if you’re considering planning in a weekend or short break, there’s a lot on offer for families and plenty to do without breaking the bank too!

Stay closer to home

You don’t have to travel far from home to explore what the UK has to offer, there are some great attractions and sights to see near-by. You can make it feel like more of an adventure by staying somewhere different to home. Look for family friendly places like YHA which are affordable options when it comes to accommodation. Having a night or two away, even closer to home can be really exciting as a family trip and means you don’t have too far to travel with the Children.

Make a road trip out of it

If you have a few more days to spare, then going on a family road trip can be a great way to explore the UK. You can travel further, and you can plan in more so there’s more time to explore. Allow yourself a couple of stops along the way so you can make the most of your travel time to include some sights or attractions on route. This helps to break up the journey, which is nicer for children and means you can pack more into your itinerary.

UK family festivals  

Another way to explore the UK with the family is to look out for any festivals, ones that are family friendly such as latitude are great options. You can explore new destinations within the UK and have a great weekend packed full of family activities and music. If there’s a place within the UK that you’ve always wanted to visit why not see if there’s a festival or event coming up that you can tie into your visit.

Keep an eye out for offers

This works well if you’re flexible on when you can take some time off to explore the UK as offers often run for shorter periods of time. If you are flexible, it’s worth checking in on any offers that might be available for attraction tickets, museums or historic landmarks who sometimes offer family tickets, saving you some money.
