Pubs across the UK now provide a variety of rooms that cater for families so that everyone can be part of that special time away. Pub B&B’s are a great alternative to hotels offering guests the chance to really get a taste of the local area and many are located near fantastic family attractions. Pubs and inns also offer a comfortable and relaxing environment for guests to enjoy some scrumptious homemade pub food and great entertainment such as live music and beer festivals. Rooms are tastefully decorated and reasonably priced, providing guests with all the modern necessities such as en-suite bathrooms, flat screen TVs, tea and coffee making facilities, and free Wi-Fi throughout the pub. Furthermore, if you want to enjoy a few drinks in the evening, you don’t need to worry about watching what you drink as the rooms are just a stone’s throw away!
For the perfect high adrenaline family adventure, Alton Towers is the place to visit. Home to Britain’s most-loved theme park and the world’s first CBeebies Land with great kid’s attractions; white-knuckle roller coaster rides; special events; and much, much more; Alton Towers Resort is the perfect destination for the whole family. Located in the county of Staffordshire, Alton Towers also provides a water park, interactive aquarium, 'extraordinary' golf (as opposed to just plain old 'crazy' golf), a farm, stately home, two hotels, a spa and a history dating back over 3,000 years.
Britain is blessed with some of the world’s most wonderful safari parks full of vibrant and colourful wildlife; Longleat Safari Park is one of the best the UK has to offer. Situated in the picturesque county of Wiltshire, Longleat was the first safari park to be opened outside of Africa in April 1966, and over 40 years later, it still continues to revolutionise the animal experience. The safari journey takes you through the East Africa Reserve, Big Game Park, Wolf Wood, Tiger Territory, Lion Country, and Monkey Jungle (but beware, the monkeys like to hitch rides from passing vehicles!). If that’s not enough there is also a butterfly house, rides, a maze, miniature railway, and an adventure playground, the perfect day out for all the family.
