A family vacation to the UK is the perfect introduction to kid-friendly international travel. With no language barrier other than a charming accent, children will feel at ease to explore the best of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Raise your pinkies at afternoon tea in a country pub or a posh London hotel; learn all about royal (and sometimes scary!) history at the Tower of London or Edinburgh Castle; and cheer on your favorite professional soccer team. London and Edinburgh are two of Europe’s most-loved cities and have many accommodation options that work well for families, like apartment-style hotels within walking distance of all the attractions. Throughout the UK countryside, families return year after year to castles, manor houses and country estates that offer kid-friendly activities right onsite, no driving required.

Coronavirus Update

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
