As your family grows, so does the cost of going on holiday. In your childless days you may have been used to an annual holiday abroad, but since having children money is tighter and this simply isn’t an option anymore. More and more families are choosing short UK breaks over big budget holidays, and with so much to do right on your doorstep you can have just as much fun without the travel.
Often the desire to go on holiday eclipses the reality that you still have the rest of the year to get through once you get back. Don’t blow all your money on an expensive family holiday if you then can’t afford basic things on your return, Christmas is fast approaching remember! This isn’t to say you shouldn’t go on holiday at all, everyone deserves a break, and family holidays are one of the best places to make memories. This summer try holidaying in the UK to save money. You could even go away for free, as Cushelle are giving away a trip to Butlins to their competition winner. Staying in Britain also takes some of the travel stress out holidaying with kids, at least in a car you don’t have to worry about bothering other passengers, thousands of feet in the air.
Another reason to stay in Britain is the wealth of things there are to see and do. Many people dream of travelling the world, yet only see a very small percentage of what their home country has to offer. The UK has everything, mountains to climb, a fabulous coastline and historic cities. There is something for everyone, and tourists travel from far and wide to explore the UK, whilst those who reside here take it for granted. Show the kids some of what makes Britain great, and get to know your own country a little better.
Whether you are looking for a beach break, an adrenaline theme park adventure or somewhere with plenty to keep kids occupied, there is something in the UK to suit. Make the most of the good weather and discover that there’s more to Britain than the parts you see on a day-to-day basis.
