We all have fond memories of our own childhood holidays in Britain, even if (or especially if!) they meant rainy beaches in July or spending hours in a pub garden with 1 glass of lemonade and a packet of crisps. Oh My great Britain! So, how can we recreate the memorable moments we had as kids with our own children? Do we have to work harder to create unforgettable holidays, or do simple pleasures still win through?

At our #OMGBFamily Twitter chat, we want to hear what you think makes an unforgettable British family holiday – from quintessential ingredients (fish and chips on the beach) to rites of passage (hours in a stately home), must-pack items (crabbing nets and waterproofs) and favourite places and activities.

The party is sponsored by Visit England Homeofamazing.com, which celebrates all the wonderful experiences families can have in the UK. Follow Visit England on @VisitEngland.

Come tweet on Thursday 30 June from 13:00 – 14:00 BST. You could win 1 of 10 National Trust picnic rugs plus 2 50 things to do before you’re 11¾ adventure books.
