The Scottish capital is a lovely place to visit in the winter, with a buzz in the air, a wealth of history, cosy pubs, Christmas markets, museums, shops, and so much more. For active families, there’s Arthur’s Seat peak to climb – it doesn’t take too long to walk (about two hours there and back) and has spectacular views of the city. There really is something magical about Edinburgh around this time of the year, and what better way to enjoy it than with your family?

The architecture in Oxford is showstopping all year round but it’s just that bit more special during winter, especially when it snows. The centre of Oxford is pretty compact, with plenty to do over the course of a few days, so you don’t have to spend too much time in the cold. You can discover so much just wandering around the centre. You could visit the famous colleges of Oxford University, check out the old prison and castle, go ice skating at the ice rink, and walk the same paths as so many great minds that have been and gone.
What would a winter family trip list be without York on it? Kids and adults alike love to explore The Shambles (the city’s most famous street, said to be the inspiration behind Diagon Alley in Harry Potter), along with the vast foodie delights on offer from stalls and markets. You also have the option to check out York’s Chocolate Story, The York Dungeons, or the National Railway Museum, to name a few. Don’t forget to book yourself in at the world-famous Betty’s Tea Rooms for a spot of afternoon tea to warm you up!
Whilst Pembrokeshire is often a place that people venture to during the summer, it’s just as nice to visit in the winter, if not nicer. In the winter it’s a lot quieter than it would be in the hotter months, so you have the advantage of emptier beaches, cosy cottages, and plenty of indoor activities too. With it being quieter and more peaceful around this time, you can really take it in properly, without having to compete so much for restaurant or activity reservations.
