5 ways to make your attraction family friendly

Years of taking my famiily around days out and attractions around the UK has taught me many things – one of which is that places which sell themselves as ‘family friendly’ are often way off the mark.

This weekend for a few hours, I played tourist in my home town of Hull. I joined a group of bloggers, mostly from out of town, to experience some more grown-up activities, courtesy of Visit Hull and East Yorkshire. It was a nice change to do something without the children. I haven’t played out in Hull as a grown-up very often in my own right since having children.
