Getting away during the winter may sound like a crazy time to do it. But, with the October half term and then the several weeks the kids have off for Christmas – why not?

Disclosure – this is a collaboration post

If jetting away is out of the question, like millions of Brits who opted for a staycation during the recent August Bank Holiday, a long weekend in the UK could be just what your family needs.

But where to go? Well, one city stands head and shoulder above the rest – London!

Why London?

As the capital, it’s one of the biggest cities in the world, and the most popular. A huge tourist destination that sees people from a wide variety of countries flock to the UK, you may have become accustomed to the idea of having London right on your doorstep. So why not explore it like you would any other city in the world?

Filled with loads of fun things to do, and with history lining the streets, it’s the type of trip that would be perfect for you and the kids. Oh, and you don’t have to get on a plane either.

Getting there

This brings me to my next point, the travel. Now, you could opt to drive and park wherever you stay, but this could become a bit stressful for the driver. But, as such a connected city, getting there by train is super easy from all across the UK.

Of course, if flying is more your thing, there are domestic flights you could take advantage of too.

Where to stay

Now, it’s London, which means there are so many places to stay. From a budget hotel that’ll have the bare bones of what you need to Marylebone serviced apartments that offer the ultimate luxury throughout your trip, the options here are almost endless. It all depends on what your budget is and how much you want to unwind while you’re back at the hotel with the kids – luxury is probably winning right now isn’t it?

What to do

Now, there are loads to do in London anyway, from the London Eye and sightseeing tours to the West End (kid’s ages depending) and the dungeons – you’re spoilt for choice. But at Christmas time, there’s even more to explore. From Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park and Winterville in Clapham Common to Hogwarts in the Snow at Warner Bros, there’ll be more than one weekend can manage.

If you are looking for things to do in London with children check out my previous post.

So, now that you know London is the place to go this winter, go and get all those tickets and schedules sorted for the whole family.

Timeshares in Orlando are a dime a dozen, so if you’d like to sell Orange Lake timeshare in Orlando, you’re going to need the help of a licensed broker. Timeshares for sale on the secondary market are difficult to sell without a firm specialized in timeshare resale.
