fts_logo_close_dmg_rgb_bwWhilst The Mini Malpi often restrict our travels to an under one-and-a-half hour car drive and our exotic holiday locations have so far included Woodhall Spa and Sherwood Forest, it doesn’t stop us dreaming of distant shores.

And we have friends and family who’ve proved such travels can be done taking their small children to and from places as far flung as Portugal, Thailand and New Zealand.

If you have similar itchy feet but aren’t sure where to start, then a visit to the Family Travel Show at Olympia in London on October 1st and 2nd could be the answer.

“Family holidays have evolved – a hunger for experience, a desire to educate, and the determination to share our passion for travel with the next generation is now more possible than ever,” says Katie Burgess from Escape Events.

“Here the Family Travel Show and their expert exhibitors open your eyes to what opportunities exist for exploring the world with kids in tow.

“The Family Travel Show is your chance to meet with the biggest collection of specialist family holiday providers and discover travel options that you never knew existed. Get insider information and ideas from the experts, plus save money with the amazing show offers and enjoy show features for all the family.”
