Top 5 UK Autumn family breaks for adventurous families

Of course, no autumn getaway would be complete without considering London and all of its wonderful attractions. The capital is simply made for families and history will come alive for youngsters with visits to Buckingham Palace, which is open for tours right up until the end of September, as well as the likes of The Tower of London, and Houses of Parliament.

There’s also the Warner Bros Studio Tour featuring a feast of Harry Potter props and behind-the-scenes magic for all, not to mention a wonderful selection of classic films with a live orchestral accompaniment being shown across autumn at the Royal Albert Hall.

For a relaxing, convenient London stay during your autumn family holidays, Apex Temple Court Hotel, Apex London Wall Hotel and Apex City of London Hotel are all within the city centre, offering ideal accommodation.

Edinburgh provides year-round entertainment for families, not to mention a beautiful, historic backdrop to explore.

On 9 September, why not join the ‘Pedal for Scotland Wee Jaunt Edinburgh’? This family-friendly, traffic-free bike ride is great fun for all ages, with an ‘event village’ at the finish line providing post-cycle entertainment. There’s also the Scottish International Storytelling Festival from 19-31 October, taking place in Edinburgh’s High Street.

Enjoy your autumn break in Apex Hotels

Apex has four great hotel locations in the Scottish capital – Apex City of Edinburgh Hotel, the stunning castle views at Apex Grassmarket Hotel, or Apex Waterloo Place Hotel and Apex Haymarket.

Autumn is a magical time of year for families to visit Bath. Take a memorable stroll along its cobbled streets, visit Bath Abbey and the famous Roman Baths, or just enjoy the views and watch as dusk falls over the beautiful Bath skyline.

After a busy day, you can relax in style at the four-star Apex City of Bath Hotel – the city’s largest – which offers great leisure facilities, as well as a bar and restaurant that treats diners to classic French cooking with a British twist.

Not to be outdone, Glasgow will be offering the Doors Open Days Festival from 10 to 16 September, allowing families to explore free-of-charge over 100 historic buildings, theatres, factories, and more. There’s also the Mackintosh Festival from 1 to 31 October, celebrating the art and designs of the city’s own Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Apex City of Glasgow Hotel has luxurious, comfortable accommodation for families, complete with bi-level Duplex Suites that offer stunning floor-to-ceiling views of the city.

Dundee will undoubtedly be the place to be from 15 September. That’s when the city’s highly-anticipated V&A – Scotland’s first design museum – will be opening.

With that in mind, the four-star Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa is within easy walking distance of the city’s best attractions, and enjoys a great Waterfront location next to the V&A.
