What do kids want when they stay in hotels? Contrary to what some might think, it’s not necessarily XBox in the room. At BritMums we recently gathered together a group of family travel bloggers to talk about this and other travel blogging issues at our #KidsatTaj day. We were hosted at 51 Buckingham Gate, a […]
A big, long-haul adventure trip is something so many of us hope to take as a family — exposing our children (and ourselves) to new people, sights and lands. But they can be challenging. Because of the time and expense, we want to make the most of it and come away with happy lasting memories. […]
How do you make family travel less stressful? Do you stick to your usual routines or relax the rules? What makes family travel easier? BritMums — along with cohosts, Anneli Faiers (@Delicieux_fr) and Paul Steele (@paul_steele), founder of BaldHiker.com and VisitBritain contributor — organised a Twitter party all about family travel, hashtag #HyattWLFG. It was […]
Eleven-year-old Jessica Ebner-Statt tried out a kids’ spy package at this London hotel. Here, she reveals if young sleuths will like it. (Jessica’s also guest blogged for BritMums about the things kids like best at Disney World, Florida.) Do you know which American President has a statue on Parliament Square in London? Or how about […]
In our recent #loveukbreaks Twitter party we asked you to share your UK gems that demonstrate loud and clear that the UK is a great place to holiday. The #loveukbreaks party was sponsored by Hoseasons, the UK’s leading self-catering specialists who have been providing fantastic UK family holidays since 1944. Hoseasons accommodates more than 1 […]
Earlier this month on a visit to Costa Brava I went on a walk through Cadaqués with a group of British bloggers and Spanish Instagramers. This city is part of Spain and very close to the French border, yet it guards its Catalonian heritage strongly. What it showed was that Cadaqués — a delightful former […]
Sarah Ebner blogs at Family Travel Times. Here, she reviews one of the premiere attractions in Orlando, Florida. One of our recent family trips was part of a cherished dream that I had for as long as I can remember: to visit two worlds, Disney and Sea. I clearly recall aching to see a dolphin […]
Earlier this month I appeared on a panel at Social Travel Market, the social media conference that’s part of the massive London World Travel Market. While there, I met some of the most innovative travel bloggers in the world — EverythingEverywhere.com, NomadicMatt.com, BudgetTraveller.org, LiveShareTravel, WildJunket.com and SoloTravelerBlog. They travel literally everywhere in the world. But […]
I’m writing this round-up the day before we are due to travel to Suffolk for a mini-break in the country. By the time you read this, I’ll be back home again. I do hope we’ve had a nice time. If we have, it will be largely down to the blogging community which was on top […]
I spent a week in Ethiopia with the ONE organisation, seeing the worthwhile programmes funded by foreign aid and meeting people who are the new face of Ethiopia. Scroll down the bottom of the piece for information on what you can do and how to get involved. On Saturday we visited another scarf factory back […]
There’s always something wonderfully childish about finding products in a foreign country which have a totally different meaning in English. Take the ‘Plopp’ chocolate we ate in Sweden in the summer: amused me immensely. Though not as much as a couple of the hotels we chose to stay in during our trip around the country. […]
What’s your idea of the perfect family-friendly holiday destination? Does it include the countryside with loads to do and see? A beach? Or will a swimming pool with slides suffice? BritMums wants to know! We’re working with Hilton HHonors, Hilton Worldwide’s loyalty programme, on a cool prize draw where you can win a night’s stay […]
At BritMums Live! our friends at Butlins, the popular UK family resort, were scouting for new Butlins Ambassadors. One of the most Butlins-aware bloggers we know is Laura at Tired Mummy of Two. She can answer every question we have about the resorts and then some. “Some people call me the Queen of Butlins,” she […]
Can’t quite believe a week has gone by since the weekend of the BritMums Live conference. My first ever blogging conference was hugely enjoyable: meeting blog buddies, putting names to faces, feeling I was part of a warm, welcoming community. Travelling alone was something I hadn’t done in a long time: certainly I haven’t stayed […]

Does your child love travelling and exploring? Are they the first to get on the crazy funfair rides and the most opinionated about which shop has the best ice cream? Perhaps they love to appear on the family camcorder and have a flair for reporting. If so, we’d like to hear from them! Our friends […]
