There is nothing better than spending quality time as a family. However, a nice weekend away can soon go downhill if you haven’t planned properly. Below, you will find some top tips on planning the perfect weekend getaway to help you get started.
Blend the fun with the educational– There are plenty of great attractions across the UK that are fun yet educational. The World of Glass in St Helens, Merseyside, is a good choice, as there are artisanal events and workshops for all ages. You probably already know about the Science Museum in South Kensington, London. It has five floors of exhibits, which will amaze and delight. There is no better introduction to science for kids. Castles are also a lot of fun while being educational too, and there are plenty of those across the country.
Choose a destination that is hosting a festival– Last but not least, it is always a good idea to choose somewhere that is hosting a festival on the weekend you are visiting. It does not matter whether the theme particularly interests you, as there are bound to be carnival rides, delicious food stalls, and maybe even a petting zoo for the kids to enjoy. This will make your weekend an instant success for your little ones.
