Family holidays are where memories are made to last a lifetime, so we want to help you make the most out of those precious weeks. We know kids love messing around in waterparks, swimming pools, and digging and making sandcastles on beaches. They also want easy access to ice cream.
So with this in mind our in-house children’s holiday experts have pulled together a list of the most family-friendly places, hotels and resorts around to give you some inspiration for the summer holidays or if you’re super-organised, your winter break.
Escape to Spain to enjoy the beautiful beaches, outrageously fun theme parks and water parks, Dubai has also got its fair share of these. And of course their favourite films can come to life at Disneyland Paris and Orlando. You could also rent a villa on a Greek island such as Santorini or Crete and spend all day lazing in the mediterranean, and playing poolside, before getting stuck into a mezze (kids’ll love the different types of cheese).
Here’s more about some of our top picks for all the family.
