When the most important thing on your mind was building a cool new fort or convincing your mom to let your best friend sleep over?
The years may have passed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t awaken your inner kid! You wanna know how? Well, pack up the whole family and get ready because it’s time for an adventure-in Europe!
London and Paris have some things in common. They are both spectacular capital cities offering more than enough cultural activities, historical sites, delicious cuisine and breathtaking scenery. They are both great family-friendly locations, boasting a plethora of possibilities for the whole family. But, they’ve got something else going for them – theme parks!
Yep, just outside these bustling metropolises you’ll find three epic adventures: LEGOLAND Windsor (London), Thomas Land at Drayton Manor (London) and Disneyland (Paris). The true beauty of these parks – we think – is, while you can enjoy the historical, cultural, epicurean delights of these European cities you can also take a break and be a kid!
Your kids’ eyes will light up when they see LEGOLAND. With more than 55 interactive rides, numerous attractions, live shows, Lego building workshops and more, this is family fun to the extreme. Oh, and did we mention the park also boasts more than 80 million Lego bricks spread across 150 acres of beautiful parkland? On a warm day, the whole family can enjoy the water rides, hop on the pirate trail, or join a Viking fleet.
Flying into London? You can reach the park by train, coach or private vehicle. Check out the directions here.
And when you’ve had your fill of LEGOLAND, make sure to head to nearby Windsor and the Windsor Castle, the largest and oldest still inhabited castle-a favorite weekend getaway of the queen and soon to be your favorite too!
For young children and their parents, few places will be as exciting as Thomas Land at Drayton Manor. There are more than 25 rids and attractions for any little Thomas and Friends fan – and kids even have the chance the “meet” Thomas himself.
Flying to London? There are a few ways to get to the park. Find out more information here.
We may have saved the best for last here. A family trip to the City of Lights is simply not complete without paying a visit to Mickey, Minnie and all their famous friends. It’s nearly impossible to give suggestions for what to do or see in Disney Land Paris – it’s packed with enough attractions, rides, games, shops and activities to keep all members of your family happy for days!
There is an extra bonus if you decide to go this year because it’s the 25th anniversary so, if you book now you get 15% off the hotel and park tickets package, plus free half-board for all the people in your group!
Flying into Paris? You can get there from Paris via a private car, a train or shuttle bus. Take a look at the travel options here.
Where to stay? We definitely recommend taking advantage of the special 25th anniversary offer and staying in one of the resort hotels. Check out the many hotels on site, as well as a few partner hotels here.
