Planning a getaway with the kids can be such a rewarding and lovely experience. When looking for different places to holiday, why not forget about hopping on a plane and flying for hours on your next trip – we have so many beautiful and exciting locations here in the UK.
Have you ever considered the beautiful seaside resort of Bognor Regis? Located in West Sussex on the South Coast of England, this gorgeous town is perfect for your family’s mini getaway.
How do we get there?
It’s a super easy location to get to with your family. Save money and mileage on the car and hop on the train directly from Kings Cross with Southern Rail. The journey is only 2 hours long and if you travel after rush hour times, you’ll be able to purchase off peak tickets, making the prices that bit cheaper too! Plus, if your kids are between the age of 5-15 they travel for only £2 with Southern! It’s a no brainer.
What is there to do?
Wanting to have a more educational trip away? Bognor Regis is perfect! Steeped in 1,000 years of history and the family home of the Duke of Norfolk, Arundel Castle is a great day out. This stunning attraction offers a full day of entertainment with tonnes of interesting rooms to explore and beautiful gardens to play games in.
In need of something a bit more fast paced? Treat them to some incredible activities at Chichester Barracudas Activity Day Camps. This action packed location is only a stones throw away from Bognor Regis and offers over 80 activities to keep the little ones and teens entertained for hours! From motor-sports and archery, to fencing, dance and drama, there is something for everyone at every age.
If you’re headed away for more of a relaxing mini break, the beaches in Bognor Regis are stunning. Pagham beach is the top choice, and although it is a shingle beach, it’s the perfect setting for heading into the ocean for a dip if the weather is nice. With its old fashioned amusement arcade, a handful of small cafes and plenty of bird life, it’s a fantastic place to venture to with the kids.
Where can we eat?
Full to the brim with fish and chip takeaways and restaurants, as well as pubs, restaurants and cafes, you won’t be short of places to eat on your mini break. Conveniently located mainly on the high street, and with a choice of every type of cuisine – whether you’re wanting pizza, Indian or Turkish, everyone is sure to finish their day with a full belly.
When planning your next mini getaway with the kids, Bognor Regis should definitely be on your list of places to explore.
