Slow Travel Family Breaks: Perfect escapes in Britain's special places (Paperback)

£16.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Holidays are a precious time of nourishment for families and this book will lead parents to a whole host of wonderful experiences for all ages across the UK that focus on the local, the authentic, the sustainable, the educational and the damn good fun. It's also a little black book of the most authentic, interesting and child-friendly places to stay and eat.

Seasoned family travellers and travel writers Jane Anderson and Holly Tuppen present their hand-picked selection of places to go, things to see and activities to do across the country, from wildlife and star-gazing on The Scilly Isles, Guernsey and Sark to foraging and wild swimming in the Cairngorms. Stomps and bike rides in the New Forest, organic farming in Somerset, ranger-led tours in Kent, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding in Devon, eco-activities in Bristol, baking in Wales, city regeneration in Liverpool, Swallows and Amazons in the Lake District, Dracula in Yorkshire and wildlife photography in Northumberland are all included. In Scotland experiences cover Dumfries and Galloway, Edinburgh, the Cairngorms and the Isle of Lewis and the Outer Hebrides, with everything from forest adventure activities to dolphins, whales and basking sharks on offer.

There is a longing amongst parents to take their children on UK holidays that are nourishing for the soul, that take children out of the digital world, slow down and appreciate nature, culture, arts, history, food and fellow human beings. This may be a 'slow' guide but it lacks nothing in excitement!
