10 places for a week-end without kids

We all deserve a break now and again to relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life. This is especially the case when you have kids!

The UK

The Lake District is a beautiful area of this country and a weekend out in the fresh air is just what the doctor ordered. There is an amazing selection of accommodation so you can find what you’re looking for, whether that be a cozy country cottage or a campsite!

If walking isn’t your idea of fun, then why not take a city break to Edinburgh? Soak up some Scottish culture by going to Edinburgh Castle or take a relaxing walk around the Royal Botanic Garden.

Bath is another city which is ideal for that weekend away from the kids. Have afternoon tea at the Pump Rooms after taking a tour around the incredible Roman Baths. There’s also the Jane Austin museum along with the several others.


Mainland Europe

A week-end without kids does not have to mean “staying watching TV, playing or betting on sport with Bet365 at home”, or “going not farther than 20 miles around”. During 2 or 3 days – or if you are lucky 4 or 5, you can easily go to some great places in Europe !

Berlin is one of the most fascinating cities to visit owing to its unique history. There are so many amazing museums to be visited and walks along the remnants of the Berlin wall are thought provoking.

Amsterdam is another very popular city-break destination and there are many reasons for this. The Anne Frank museum excellent and if you go in the right season, the tulip fields are not to be missed.


Bruges is a quaint little city where there are also several fascinating museums alongside beautiful scenery. Taking a boat trip has to be a particular highlight of any trip to Bruges.

Barcelona is one of those European cities which you can keep going back to. There is so much to see and do with all of the stunning Gaudi architecture, but also with the amazing night life there is on offer.

Venice is a place like nowhere else. Get away from the stress of every day and step back in time. Take a gondola ride and make sure you have time to visit the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello.


Budapest is a fabulous city divided in two by the river Danube. Both sides have lots to offer and why not take an open-top bus tour around both or a river cruise to take it all in.

North Africa

Cairo is such an amazing place to visit. Make sure you have time to visit the Egyptian Museum, but of course, don’t forget the pyramids!


Marrakesh surely has to be on your list of places to visit. It’s diverse and rich culture is something very special with its marketplaces being a completely new and exciting experience. There are also a lot of resorts and fun things to do (spa, casinos, camel ride…).
