A family holiday doesn't have to be a week of arguments whilst cooped up in an under-sized tent or mobile home with the rain beating down outside.
Whether you want to relax in the sun, go walking or cycling, or you have a taste for something more adventurous, you can find a holiday to suit you and your family's taste.
Stay in a Swedish winter wonderland or try your hand at canoeing on Europe's great rivers - or find a holiday where the kids are kept entertained (from donkey treks and horse riding in the Alps to coasteering in Wales), whilst you have the chance to relax, unwind and enjoy fine cuisine or even a spa experience, all amidst the wonderful variety of scenery that the UK and the rest of Europe can offer, and all within easy reach by train and ferry.
We've listed some of our top family holiday picks below:
