If you are looking for a fun and easy way to spend quality time with your kids, then you need to take them somewhere magical. So many places in the world will make your children feel like they have stepped into a fairy tale. Here is a list of the top7 most enchanting destinations where families can explore together.

Eden Project

Eden Project is a fantastic place for family travel.  If you do not know what it is, think of an enormous conservatory filled with plants and trees from around the world.  There is also a massive selection of indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy. Your kids will love the adventure playground, rock climbing wall and zip wire. They can also get involved in the many craft activities on offer or watch a film at the Eden Project cinema.

Your kids will love to explore all of the outdoor areas too.  The indoor attractions include The Earth Shop, which has lots of fantastic products for sale; Eden Sessions, a great live music venue with great acts throughout the year; Stargazing, where you can come along and learn all about astronomy from some of Britain’s leading astronomers. 

Warwick Castle

Warwick Castle is a medieval castle developed from an original built by William the Conqueror in 1070. Now open to visitors, it sits on a cliff overlooking the River Avon and offers breath-taking views of England’s countryside. Originally designed as a showcase for military power and political strategy, this magnificent site has become one of the most popular venues for children.

The site is home to many features; the castle, motte and bailey remains of an 11th-century development, a Tudor mansion within the shell of the former medieval great hall, St Mary’s Guildhall dating back to 1450, and a Tudor almshouse. The property also features an adventure playground for children of all ages to let off steam.

In the late 19th century, Warwick Castle was a setting for some authors, including Oscar Wilde and Charlotte Brontë, who drew inspiration from its rugged beauty. Today it is open to tourists and visitors and hosts many events throughout the year. The site is still under the same family that bought it in 1873. 

Warwick Castle is an excellent place for young children to visit with parents or carers or guardians, whatever the weather. There is always something going on, from falconry displays to jousting tournaments and lots of hands-on activities for children to enjoy the vacation.

Paultons Park

Paultons Park is a large theme park in the county of Hampshire. The Park features over 70 rides and attractions, including two children’s areas called Peppa Pig World based on the TV series ‘Peppa Pig’ and The Lost Kingdom, dedicated to dinosaurs

New Tornado Springs is another popular feature at this family attraction, with a brand new rollercoaster and thrill ride to keep older children happy.

beWilderwood

BeWilderwood is a magical place to visit with your kids. It is an adventure park in the North of England where you can spend all day exploring, meandering through woodland paths, taking on crazy obstacle courses and enjoying time together as a family.

BeWilderwood not only provides entertainment for children but also offers some delicious treats. You can get tasty hot chocolate and cake by the log fire in their cafe. You can also buy BeWilderwood merchandise, including t-shirts, tote bags, and aprons.

This place is great for birthdays too. You can rent a private cabin with friends or family where you use the adventure park all day. The BeWilderwood team will also come to you with a special birthday cake and presents.

Woodlands Family Park

Woodlands family park is a great place to visit with kids. It has several acres of green area worldwide, and it’s a spot where you can go for a picnic or take some time off from your busy lifestyle. There are great activities that both children and adults will enjoy, such as an outdoor theatre, mini golf and a maze.

The Forbidden Corner

The Forbidden Corner is an enormous cave mined for over 2000 years. Iron, coal and lime were once its main products, but now it mainly houses bats with the occasional thrill-seeker who decides to explore this extensive cavern system. 

The cave entrance is in a small village called Parpča on Kosovo’s third-largest lake, Lake Kačanik. A wooden bridge and stairs take you down to the entrance of the cave, which is a hole in between two peaks of rock where there used to be an iron mine. 

The path through this cavernous area is wet and slippery, so it’s advisable to carry closed shoes with good grip for your little ones who want to explore this magical place. The exploration is around an hour and a half long, with some impressive caverns along the way that make it worth your while.

Cheddar Gorge

Cheddar Gorge is a large limestone gorge in the southern part of the Mendip Hills, near Cheddar village. The Gorge is an impressive sight, with its massive cliffs and views over Somerset. It’s also home to several caves that are well worth exploring when you visit.

Cheddar Caves & Gorge has been famous for its spectacular scenery since Victorian times when it was a popular visitor attraction. A visit to the gorge today is like stepping back in time and offers a beautiful opportunity to explore this unique landscape.
