5 family holiday ideas for 2023

It’s never too early to start planning your next trip away with your family. So, whether you decide to stay in the UK next summer 2023 and do a staycation, or you fancy going a little further afield by catching a plane abroad, we’ve rounded up 5 of the best family holiday ideas for 2023.


One of the most popular places for UK families is Spain. With infinite sandy beaches, all-around sunshine and cheap flights from the UK, Spain is an absolute no-brainer for families looking for their next getaway in 2023. There’s so much to do in Spain that it can often be difficult to narrow it down. For incredible mountains and pretty fishing villages, head to Galicia in the northwest. For endless sun and sands, the south of the country offers families endless beach time and ocean swims.


Another popular choice for UK families is Ireland. Kids can enjoy everything from rafting to visiting ancient castles, while adults can fill their boots with incredible hiking opportunities and country pubs. If you ever tire of the countryside, head to Ireland’s buzzing capital of Dublin for a few days of country respite.


For families looking to head further afield, Turkey is a great European family holiday destination. Kalkan offers family members gorgeous scenic outdoor trails like the Lycian Way hike, as well as a wealth of ancient wonders easily discoverable by foot. Of course, there are also plenty of gorgeous beaches to soak up the Turkish sun!

Sussex, England

If staycations are more what you’re looking for, there are tons of amazing places within the UK to explore – Sussex being one of them. Close to London but also a stunning county in its own right, Sussex boasts a multitude of coastal towns and countryside retreats that will delight all ages of the family. And with staycations, you don’t have to fly to have a good time. Instead, swap your plane ticket for a motorhome and hire a campervan for the next holiday season to explore what’s on your local doorstep. Just don’t forget to take out motorhome insurance before you go!


They’ll be no problem persuading your kids to head to Italy for their next summer break. With the promise of pizza, pasta and ice cream they’ll be running over to the plane to catch their flight! Italy offers families a host of family-friend accommodations, be it campsites, holiday villages, self-catering villas or even beach resorts. And the country’s breath-taking coastline and beaches will fill your days with endless things to do and infinite things to see!
