Warwick Castle, Bristol and Swansea Bay Road Trip

Our latest family road trip was literally so much fun, and I thought I would take the opportunity to share the itinerary with you.  It’s perfect for families based around the Midlands, but in reality lots of people might like to consider this adventure. 

Our first stop was spending the night at Warwick Castle, which is always a big hit with the kids.  Just imagine medieval glamping with four poster beds, a spot of morning archery and dashing Knights mixed in with one of the most exciting and historical days out the UK has to offer.  That’s got to get your holiday off to a good start hasn’t it! 

We then headed South West towards Bristol to explore this amazing UK city, which is home to the rather impressive SS Great Britain.  This is a hands on and interactive family trip that everyone will enjoy.  The girls loved scrubbing the decks and getting a little glimpse into what life would have been like during the ships Trans-Atlantic crossings. 

The final leg of our road trip was spent in Swansea Bay, and this was a real highlight to our holiday. I really didn’t know what to expect from this part of South Wales, but I can honestly say it blew us all away with the amount of things there were to do, the award winning beaches and areas of outstanding natural beauty.

We spent hours jumping waves at the water park in Swansea, enjoyed family walks in beautiful woodlands and of course dug sand for hours on the beach.  They seem like such simple things, but they were truly happy memories for the whole family.  It’s exactly these types of moments that Hastings Direct want to hear about, and it’s so simple for you to do.
