Family friendly cities

Seeing is believing, or so they say. But take the kids on a break to one of England’s family friendly cities and they might not be able to believe their eyes. In a land of endless possibilities, they can go on a journey through centuries of history from ancient architecture to futuristic flair. Little ones run loose in interactive museums where they can press buttons and twiddle dials to their hearts’ content. Entertained, educated and fascinated, they’ll sleep soundly after days out in England’s cities.
