As a very family-friendly team, we understand the importance of keeping your little ones entertained and engaged while away on holiday. We also understand that family holidays should be as much fun for the parents as they are for the children, whatever age they may be. That's why over the years we have created the ultimate black book of all little black books full of unique and exciting family-friendly activities that can turn the most serious of parents back into a big kid once more. Here's a glimpse at just a few of the family-friendly activities we can organise for you…
Dinosaur Treasure Hunt – London’s Natural History Museum
We have teamed up with much loved children's party organisers Sharky & George to bring you a fantastic interactive treasure hunt based entirely in London's Natural History Museum. Depending on personal preference, the hunt can either be run as a competition, children against adults, or mixed teams, or all family members can work together in one team to find answers to clues and eventually break into a locked safe filled with dinosaur eggs and fossils to take home as prizes. Who said museums weren't fun?!
Your Very Own Castle for a Day – Scotland
Located just 30 minutes from Edinburgh city centre, spend a day as a family in your very own castle. Start with a tour of the 15th century old keep and bell tower, before climbing to the top of the turret for magnificent views over the Forth Rail Bridge. A Downton Abbey-style 'Upstairs Downstairs' experience will then begin with you all heading down into the servants kitchens for a private cookery lesson, followed by a 'butlering' lesson (excellent skills for the kids to take back home with them!). Heading on upstairs, lunch will be served in the beautiful drawing room before heading outside into the castle ground for a falconry display and a spot of clay pigeon shooting. End your exclusive day in the castle by retiring to the open log fire for a spot of well-deserved afternoon tea.
Harry Potter Triwizard Adventure – London
One for families with young Harry Potter fanatics, our resident fun gurus will help to immerse your family into the world of Harry Potter during London's very own Triwizard tournament. With the help of our wizard and his goblet of fire, your family must attempt to win the Triwizard cup during numerous team challenges starting at Tower Bridge learning magic tricks, followed by dementor chasing by City Hall, magic spell ingredient shopping in Borough Market, and finally finishing by The Clink Museum where he who shall not be named must be defeated during a series of exciting games.
Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge – Northern Ireland
Near the North Antrim Coast road amid unrivalled coastal scenery, the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge traverses a 30 metre deep and 20 metre wide chasm and was traditionally built by salmon fishermen in 1755. Reach Carrick-a-Rede Island via the exhilarating rope bridge challenge and enjoy a truly spectacular cliff top experience with a bird's-eye view of the clear turquoise water and ancient caverns below - if you dare to look down!
James Bond Speedboat Ride - London
A thrill-seeking activity for older children and adults alike, channel your inner-Bond whilst speeding through London onboard the actual Sunseeker from the famous Thames speedboat chase scene in 'The World is Not Enough'. Zoom under the capital's famous bridges and marvel at London's landmarks from your exclusive vantage point. The award winning comedian guides and west end actors ensure sparkling highbrow banter as you 'pull G' past MI5 before holding on tight for an exhilarating trip to Canary Wharf and back mission accomplished on this exhilarating Thames boat trip.
