Get the kids out and about exploring our great outdoors. From flying kites to cycling through sunshine-dappled woodlands or canoeing down rivers, there are heaps of holiday adventures for your family to enjoy.

For active types, England has more than 2,500 miles of maintained trails crisscrossing beautiful landscapes, so hop on a bike, jump in the saddle or just pop your walking boots on.

Fancy something new? Go down to the woods for a teddy bear’s picnic, a treetop adventure course or learn bushcraft skills. Or take to the hills for dry slope skiing and mountain boarding.

If water is more your thing, there are rivers and lakes galore where you can enjoy messing about in boats, plus irresistible swim spots and lidos for those who like to take the plunge.

There are heaps of rainy day options, too, with hundreds of museums, indoor water parks and arcades to keep you and your kids of all ages happy.

To make your holiday that extra bit special, you could stay somewhere unusual. There are castles, forts and follies available to hire, as well as treehouses, tepees, old railway carriages and vintage caravans.
