Top 5 Adventure Holidays for Children in UK

26 November 2022

If you’re looking to stay in the UK this year, then you can find plenty of adventure holidays dotted around the country. From water-sports to hiking, here are some of the best places to quench that thirst for adventure and make it a family holiday, like no other.

The Lake District, England

The YHA runs an all-year-round adventure camp programme in an old, converted country house, based in Edale. The centre is equipped with a self-catering kitchen and games room, all a stone’s throw away from numerous outdoor pursuits.

From canoeing to caving, the choices are immense. During school holidays and weekends, you can book for two or four nights, or if you’re passing through, half-day sessions are available to try out a variety of activities.

Isle of Wight, England

Located in Bembridge, The Kingswood Adventure Centre enjoys a superb cliff top location and spans 100 acres of woodlands and fields with easy beach access.

On-land activities include buggy driving, orienteering, archery, fencing and a ropes park. Head out to sea by kayak, body board or a self-built raft. Plenty to keep their bodies active and minds engaged.

Unwind at night with cosy campfire barbeques or a night-time nature trail walk. All within an outstanding setting. Pure bliss.

Snowdonia, Wales

If you’re thinking about planning a getaway, how about scenic Wales? Packed with valleys, hills, mountains, rivers and woodlands, it truly is an adventurer’s dream locale.

Snowdonia Adventure Activities run sessions for children and adults, with no experience necessary. We challenge you to slide down a canyon, abseil, or zipwire off a waterfall without smiling!

Traverse some of the best mountain bike trails in the UK, explore an abandoned slate mine, hike up the mountains or paddleboard on the lake. You really are spoilt for choice in this amazingly location surrounded by natural beauty.

Fort William and Lochaber

Fort William is often billed as the Outdoor Capital of the UK and it’s easy to see why. A superb destination for thrill-seekers, this is Scotland at its finest. Home to Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain, the area is perfect for an action-packed skiing or snowboarding trip.

And let’s not forget the stunning coastline. Try kayaking or paddle-boarding along the shoreline or scuba dive to interact with abundant sea-life lurking under the waters.

Quad bike, white water raft, or learn to sail a dinghy, in a place that provides everything you need for a fun-filled family holiday.

Magherafelt, County Derry, Northern Ireland

Take a stroll through a deep dark wood in Magherafelt, follow the Gruffalo trail and you may come across ‘The Jungle,’ an outdoor activity provider in Northern Ireland.

The centre offers adrenaline-packed activities from llama trekking, zorbing, laser tag, paintball and clay pigeon shooting, to name but a few.

The site offers private bedrooms or dorms with well-equipped common areas and a hot breakfast to get you ready for the day ahead.

So, get that boot cleared out, pack the cool bags and strap those bicycles to the roof. This trip is going to be one to remember.
