Life gets busy. Work gets hectic. People get stressed out. When it comes to self care, we sometimes have to bow out of life and take some moments to ourselves so that we can re-emerge our best selves. When we do, that is the time to take our family on the road and keep the family fun alive. Here are a few places around England where families can go to spend a fun time together.
The Lake District
The landscape is so gorgeous in the Lake District that artists have been inspired by its beauty for generations. The green is so deep and the sky so blue, it’s almost as if it can’t be real. The lakes reflect the sun with such brilliance that illumination seems to come from every angle.
The surrounding mountains offer hiking and climbing for the family that loves to be active in their off time. There are also lake cruises that can be had that set the perfect outdoor experience. When the sun goes down and it’s time to retire to your private quarters, there are quaint bed and breakfasts throughout the region that cap off the country’s splendor.
Belvoir Castle is an estate that is fit for royalty. Its grand landscape and grounds are breathtaking. Engine Yard is home to former buildings that were once part of the estate, and today, they are shops, dining, bars, and entertainment. It is the perfect place to take a family stroll and take in a lot of beauty from the myriad of gardens and lakes.
The best thing to do is have high tea at the castle. It is the height of English luxury and it is one of the best parts of having a family day out to Belvoir Castle. There is so much country land around the castle where the entire family can explore.
Legoland in Windsor
If your kids are smaller and require a little more attention and excitement, Legoland in Windsor is the perfect place for them. You can explore an entire park of rides and activities. Mythica is England’s first flying theatre ride, and kids love it. The entire area of the park is dedicated to mythical creatures.
You can then go over to Miniland where the world is reconstructed with over 40 million Lego blocks. There is also a Lego Hotel on site, but feel free to stay wherever you choose.
Peppa Pig World
Every young child loves Peppa, George, Miss Rabbit, and Mommy and Daddy Pig. Visit Peppa Pig world in Paulton’s Park in Hampshire for a true immersive Peppa experience. You can do such things as ride in Miss Rabbit’s Helicopter and ride on Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing Club ride. There are hotels on site that offer spas, dining, and relaxation.
