Holiday ideas for your family

 By Mark Frary, Times Travel writer and Editor of 101 Family Holidays

Welcome to the UK’s leading independent travel inspiration website. Our team of award-winning journalists will help you choose the trip that’s right for your family.

More than 4 million people use our site to research holidays and holiday destinations, whether they’re looking for inspiration or detailed information. You can also get our pick of the latest holiday deals delivered free to your inbox. Sign up here.

As well as 101 family holiday ideas, you’ll find guides to holidays with a baby, toddlers and teenagers. There are detailed recommendations if you’re a single parent, have more than two children or are planning a multi-generational (3G) holiday with grandparents.

What kind of holiday experience are you looking for? Maybe camping or self-catering, a trip packed with activities to keep the kids busy, or a family adventure holiday to persuade everyone to put away their phones. If you want to keep an eye on your budget, consider an all-inclusive holiday and if you want some childcare, check out the best kids clubs.

If you know when you want to travel, see my suggestions for Easter, July, August, Christmas, February half termMay half term and October half term. Also see my tips if you want to travel in term time or take away your kids in March, April, June, September or November.
