An extremely chilled atmosphere, Barcelona is a great place for both parents and children. You get the fine balance of taking in the city sites whilst having the option to travel to the beach when the urban lifestyle gets just a bit too much. The weather’s consistently top-notch with the sun rays peeking through the traditional, high rise buildings and the food is up there with some of the finest dishes you’re ever going to taste. A couple of Barcelona’s tourist attractions includes the Sagrada Familia church and the Port Aventura theme park when you’re looking to go a bit wild.

London, UK

Extremely multicultural, London is home to the royal family. It really has everything to offer for an enjoyable experience as a family. There’s plenty of shops and tourist attractions perfectly suited for young children. Legoland is a prime location if you’re wanting to keep the kids occupied or maybe they’re Harry Potter fans. In which case you can head down to the Warner Brother Studios to tour some of the famous places from the book. With so much to do, who knows, you might even think about applying for UK visa to have a longer stay in England.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

You may have had a wilder experience if you ever visited Amsterdam before you had the kids, but luckily there’s more to it than just the Red Light District. In fact, it’s a perfect place for children where you can jump onto the canal tours or visit the local zoos to see some wildlife. There’s also the added bonus of not needing to know the language too, with many residents in Holland speaking English. Maybe even better than yourself!

Paris, France

There’s plenty of culture dotted around the streets of Paris making them easily accessible for the children to see and enjoy. The Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dam de Paris are easy to walk to from each other and when you’ve taken in all the tourist attractions there are more activities to do for the family like cruises or of course Disneyland.

Malta

Feel like that's whetted your appetite? Consider these destinations next time you plan to go on holiday in the Summer and it’ll be sure to be a family holiday that’s kept in the memories for a long time.
