Top Family Destinations To Visit While Your Kids Are Young


Children grow up far too quickly; before you know it, they’re planning their own holidays with their friends! While they’re young enough to still want to go on holiday with you, you’re going to want to make the most of the experience. Here in the UK, that’s never been easier, and if you’re struggling to think of places where you can keep the kids entertained while having a good time yourself as well, then these top picks might just be perfect. Take the children here before they get too old, and you’ll create memories that will last a lifetime.


Get bewildered in Bewilderwood
Just on the outskirts of Wroxham, Norfolk, this 50 acres of woodland is the perfect solution for those looking for a holiday destination that isn’t all theme parks and heavy spending. There might not be any rides in Bewilderwood, but what there is, is a lot of outdoor fun! Your little ones can be off climbing trees, building dens, traversing across rope bridges, and relaxing in specially built treehouses. If you get the timings right, you could even visit during one of the seasonal events, with both Halloween and Easter being the perfect time to visit Bewilderwood. Perfect for children of all ages, the younger ones will enjoy the puppet shows and storytelling programs, while your teens might prefer the treetop adventures or the range of zip wires.

See the World in Cornwall
Cornwall is a great destination at the best of times, but if you want to entertain and educate your children, then it’s worth checking out the Eden Project. With its unique design which makes it appear to be some futuristic alien landing site, the interior is full of flora and fauna from around the world. You and your children can stroll through a tropical rainforest one minute, before experiencing the Mediterranean heat as you walk by vineyards. With activities and tours for children of every age, the Eden Project has something for everyone. If any of your family are adventurous enough to brave the zip line, then remember that you do have to pay extra for this. Travelling to Cornwall can be very slow if you’re using public transport, so it’s worth looking at cheap car rentals before you start buying train tickets. You can reduce your travel time even more by staying at the onsite hostel and campsite, making the experience even more rewarding.


Getting wet in Northumberland
It feels like the largest adventure playground in the world, and it’s not too far off being exactly that! The Kielder Water and Forest Park have Europe’s largest human-made lake, and it’s surrounded by a stunning 250 square miles of natural forest. This means that you will certainly not run out of things to do, and your children are going to be overwhelmed by the options. Water skiing and mountain biking are popular favourites, but with horse riding and miles of hiking as well, the list of things to do will make it easy to keep everyone entertained. Don’t try and cram everything into one day, and make sure that on the evening you check out the Kielder Observatory, where you can stun your little ones with the sights of the universe.

If you’re limiting your family holiday plans to the nearest theme park, then you’re missing out on some of the most fun things there are to do in the UK. Tailor your holiday to the ages of your children, and they might have such a good time that they never want to go on holiday without you!
