1. Britain has long played a starring role on the silver screen, and many of cinema’s most famous locations are easily accessible for families.

A visit to the Warner Bros Studio Tours: the Making of Harry Potter, where you can now catch the Hogwarts Train, is an absolute holiday must.

Discover Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck and all their friends at the magical World of Beatrix Potter in the Lake District.

2. Castles are alive with the stories of the past and the events and activities of today. So whether you fancy a majestic fortress, grim prison or luxurious mansion, you’ll find a great family day out at one of Britain’s castles.

Offering fireball shows, castle dungeons, knight school and medieval jousting, Warwick Castle is history made fun!

3. For child-friendly hotels, it’s hard to go past the full-scale Lego paradise that is Legoland Resort Hotel, Windsor.

Located in the heart of theme park Legoland, kids will love the resort hotel’s themed bedrooms – choose from Pirate, Adventure or Kingdom – interactive Lego features, a dragon-guarded entrance and a pirate splash pool. Even the hotel lifts are themed!

4. And as a special bonus, kids under 11 travel free on the London tube when travelling with an adult using a Visitor Oyster Card.
