Stress Free Family Vacation Destination: Family Travel in Great Britain
Great Britain is among the most common destination for tourists, whether they are foreign or local. There are plenty of things to do and, likewise, places to visit, from castles to nightclubs and sleepy villages. If you have a family, then child-friendly attractions should be your primary focus. However, this does not mean you visit places that are a paradise to children but boring to anyone else. The United Kingdom has plenty of destinations that are fun for children, adults and teenagers.
First, you could visit Glenridding. This region is especially popular among walkers. There are walking trails that are suitable for all levels and all ages. If you are seeking a challenge, the local village is the most appealing spot for accessing the third highest mountain in all of England, Helvellyn. You cannot exhaust the myriad walks, but if you seek more than just walks or mountain climbing, you could go on a cruise along the Ullswater aboard a steamer. You could also visit the Aira Force for its waterfall that is sixty feet high.
Second, you could visit Woolacombe, North Devon. The village beach stretches three miles. There are patrolling lifeguards and it has a Blue Flag status. This makes this destination ideal for activities like windsurfing, canoeing, sailing and spade digging. Other than spending time in the water, you could visit North Devon’s natural attractions. This includes two national parks, hidden coves and rare maritime heathland. All this make North Devon ideal for an adventurous family.
Brighton, East Sussex
Third, you could visit Brighton, East Sussex. The region has enticing period architecture that will appeal to the history lovers. There are plenty of activities, like playing games along the shingle beach to exploring the culture and history within George IV’s Pavilion. You will find the Brighton Art Gallery and Museum within the Pavilion. These places offer various children’s workshops and family events. You could board the world’s most ancient and still operating electric railway that runs between Brighton Marina and Palace Pier. When you get off this train, you may visit Brighton Sea Life and go to the beach.
Fourth, you might visit Bamburgh in Northumberland. Bamburgh lies between a silvery sea and a glistening green countryside. The beach is among the best in Great Britain. It has cosy cottages, restaurants and pubs for holiday makers. Bamburgh also contains a 12th century castle that lies atop a basalt crag that spans 180 feet. You could ride a boat and travel between the Farne Islands and Seahouses.
Firth, you may visit Southwold in Suffolk. The region only has a single road for leaving or entering. It is surrounded by River Blyth, Buss Creek, Southwold harbour and the North Sea. You can tour the lighthouse, walk the pier, visit the neighbourhood or play on the sand. You may also do a little crabbing before you visit the art galleries and tea rooms.
These destinations will all ensure that your family holiday is stress-free and enjoyable for everyone.
