The February half term break can feel really boring when you are stuck at home and probably unable to get out because of the more than miserable weather, so why not beat the winter blues and get away on a short February half term break?
The UK has plenty to offer when it comes to short breaks for all the family and no matter where you live, you will have plenty of gems right on your door step as according to an article published by the Telegraph, Britain’s most visited cities are spread all around the country.
If you are looking for inspiration, these are the 10 cities most popular with national and international tourists:
Some of these are of course quite obvious. Who didn’t expect London to come out first, but there are some cities on the list that some of you might not immediately think of for a short break. Bristol or Brighton are two brilliant choices, if you are considering a city break. They are both vibrant and family friendly cities and have the perfect mix of culture, fun and sightseeing on offer. Plus, they aren’t over-crowded and intimidating.
If you are after something a little more quiet, renting a holiday cottage somewhere by the sea or in one of the UK’s many national parks might be a wonderful option for you. Enjoy your family without the hustle and bustle of the city, relax in a hot tub and soak in the fresh air on a long walk.
Family hotels are a great idea, if you want to make your half term break a holiday that is a real treat for your children. Entertainment and activities will keep them happy while you can enjoy a swim in the pool and best of all – you won’t relay on the weather. Family resorts like Butlins offer dozens of activities for every age group and most of them are indoors allowing you do enjoy the full holiday programme no matter which season.
Whatever holiday you go on depends on you and your family. Not everything works for everyone, but rest assured that half term breaks don’t have to be boring!
