If you haven’t yet heard, Europe is the perfect destination for your next family trip. This vast continent has a plethora of cities and towns to explore, meaning the hardest part of booking your holiday will be choosing the best places for your family.
Here are some must-visit destinations for your family trip to Europe:
This theme and leisure park is an ideal destination for families, and is jam packed full of theme parks, themed hotels, shopping, cuisine, relaxation, and entertainment. The whole family can have an adventure, and visit places like SesamoAventura, Mediterrania, Mexico, the Far West, Polynesia and China, while enjoying incredible rollercoasters that travel up to 135km an hour, plenty of shows including magicians and acrobatics, and gentle jungle swings for younger kids.
Be sure to try out the Dragon Khan, which has 8 loops and will reach speeds of more than 110km an hour, or the incredible Furius Baco ride (you’ll find it in Mediterrania), which shoots up from 0 to 135km an hour in less than 3 seconds.
You may assume London is out of your budget- after all, the city isn’t known for being cheap, but for value for money and a holiday experience full of incredible sites, you can’t do much better. Must-visits include the National Gallery, Hyde Park, and the British Museum, which are also all free- making it easy for you to see the best of what London has to offer on a budget.
Be sure to grab an Oyster Card so you can navigate the city via the Tube (and save a ton of money on taxis), and head to corridors such as Brick Lane, where you’l find delicious ethnic food for just a few pounds, and of course, you must try the fish and chips.
Prague is a bustling, prosperous city, and now attracts even more tourists than it ever has. Be sure to take a camera, as the city is inherently photographic, and you’ll find a hilltop castle bridges lined with statues, narrow streets, and storied churches- -making the city feel a little like a fairy tale.
Take public transport, as the taxi drivers have a well-earned reputation for being dishonest. Be sure to try some of the cuisine, and spend some time wandering through the city with the kids, checking out museums and seeing all that Prague has to offer.
Edinburgh is known for its amazing landscape, but the fact that it offers so many things to do has made it the second most-visited city in the UK, and you’ll be able to visit Holyroodhouse Palace, Edinburgh Castle, and plenty of other attractions which you’ll find along the Royal Mile. Don’t forget to visit the National Gallery of Scotland (it’s free), and if you’re visiting in August, check out Edinburgh Festival.
