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.

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.

known for its canals, making canal tours one of the
"must-do" things when in Amsterdam. (Image by Pixabay.com)
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!

Commonly known as a more romantic European city, it may surprise you just how good Paris is to visit after the marriage. 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.

Affordable prices yet stunning scenery is the main reason for Malta being such a
popular family destination. There’s plenty of hot summer sun throughout the year making the trips to the beach
relaxing and enjoyable for both you and the children. Malta boats the famous town of Mellieha which was crowned
a destination of excellence by the European Commission for the tourism it has to offer. You can also enjoy visiting
Popeye village where the musical production of Popeye was filmed.
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
