For me, city breaks with kids are an explosion of the senses. All the sights, sounds and in-your-face experiences crammed into a closer than close space can be overwhelming. Especially when you’re trying to keep track of little people and discourage them from touching whatever ‘that brown goo’ is. Yep, cities bring out the helicopter mum in me! But they also offer an incredible cultural and learning experience. Here's our tips on which UK cities to visit, where to stay and things to do
Last autumn we stayed in a lakeside glamping post at Croft Farm Water Park in Gloucestershire. The activity side of the holiday park had stopped for the season but it was a great base for exploring an area we've not visited before.
