Family Road Trips


The Best European Cities To Try With Your Family

A half term break for the family is the perfect way to spend some quality time together; especially in Europe as there are lots to do for both adults and children. It is full of child-friendly restaurants, hotels and especially activities so you will always have plenty to do!

  • Amsterdam 

Amsterdam is a hidden-gem family destination, it has many great places to visit, and you can enjoy touring the city by relaxing on a boat ride along the canal, or if you’re feeling more active you can always rent a bike. There are many places to go sightseeing, but you cannot miss out on visiting The Van Gogh museum.  Or, if you enjoy learning about history take a trip to visit the Anne Frank House, where her family hid during the time of the war. There are many restaurants which have a wide variety of Dutch food, but who doesn’t love pancakes? The place boasts unique and delicious culinary experiences for any traveller.


  • Reykjavik 

If you can brave the cold then this place is for you – the capital of Iceland is a small unique city full of magical experiences. Why not see The Northern Lights or go whale watching as a family, and if you do visit then you must visit the blue lagoon for relaxing afternoon in this huge thermal hot spring.

If you do decide to take a trip to Iceland then you won’t be disappointed.


  • Barcelona 

Barcelona has something for everyone! Whether that’s exploring Gaudi’s famous architecture, or walking down the La Rambla you will not be disappointed! The place is very lively by day and relaxing by night. There are many great tapas bars you can head to for some food, as well as Mediterranean inspired restaurants for a different dining experience.
