For families combining England and Scotland on their UK vacation, York makes an excellent pit stop for a night or two. Located right on the train line that runs from London to Edinburgh, York’s narrow streets and compact center are packed with kid-friendly fun. Spend half a day or more in the world’s best train museum, or get your hands sticky and sweet with a chocolate-making lesson. Pretend to be the Viking warriors who once invaded the city as you take a leisurely walk on the ancient walls. Retreat to a kid-friendly hotel after all that adventure; the best option is a centrally located property just a quick walk from the train station or within earshot of the bells in famous York Minster Cathedral.

"Everything was perfect! The room set up was great. We all enjoyed ourselves. We can’t wait to plan for next year! Thank you again!"

–Rembert Family Cruise

"Katie planned the perfect trip. We all agree it was the best trip we've had, and the hotels were some of the best we've stayed in. We found that with a baby, it was only possible to get through about half of the suggested itinerary each day, which was great because it gave us options. We took time each night to debate what we would do the next day, and really enjoyed having those possibilities laid out for us.​"

–Beck Family Trip

"My trip was extraordinary. Linda was incredible to work with and I could not have been more pleased. Thankful!"
