United Kingdom for Teens
The United Kingdom is the perfect holiday destination for teens. It’s a country filled with phenomenal culture, history, art, shopping and outdoor adventure. It’s such a magical and mesmerising place that you’ll have a hard time convincing your teens to go back home.
London is the ultimate city for teens. With a new adventure around every corner, a stay in London will be truly action-packed. And there’s a little something to suite every type of teen’s interest.
Hop on the tube or an iconic red double-decker bus to explore historical landmarks dating back hundreds of years like the Tower of London. And cap off your tour by perusing one of the many museums across the city.
Your teens will feel like royalty while discovering the world of the British Monarchy. Your private guide will take your family to admire Westminster Abbey, Prince Charles’ residence, Clarence House, and the crown jewel, Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s London residence. If you’re there on the right day, you may even catch the Changing the Guard.
The art scene in London is incredible. For your young culture vultures, the city’s theater scene is second to none. The theaters in the West End rival Broadway and offer a huge variety of shows. Sure to be way more fun and educational than your teen’s English textbooks, Shakespeare’s Globe Theater is a must-see. It’s an authentic reconstruction of his original theater, complete with a thatched roof and open-air pit for the audience.
London also has an impressive collection of galleries and exhibitions just waiting to be explored. Whether your teens are interested in the classics, modern art or even contemporary street art, your art historian guide will lead you to the best spots in town, from the National Portrait Gallery and the Tate Modern to the Wallace Collection, or, even the commercial art galleries in the west end and the streets of Shoreditch.
For foodie teens, the restaurant scene in London is one of the best in the world and Borough Market should be at the top of your family’s list. Borough Market offers fresh produce and is the perfect place to stop for lunch. For the city’s best restaurants discover the streets of Mayfair and Soho, or if you’d like something a little more traditional, try a British classic – fish and chips.
When travelling with teens in the United Kingdom the perfect city break is Oxford. Aside from touring the beautiful University campus, various locations around the city can be spotted in the many “Harry Potter” films. Then, continue on to Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studios, home to an incredible array of sets, props and costumes from the films. Your family can also climb aboard the Hogwarts Express and refresh with a glass of Butterbeer.
If your teens are outdoor adventure enthusiasts, we have a treat for you. Scotland’s Highlands offer an endless amount of thrilling activities. There’s hiking, mountain biking, Canoeing, kayaking, golf, fishing, archery, clay pigeon shooting, 4x4 wilderness safaris and much, much more.
Head to Cairngorms National Park to meet and feed the UK’s only herd of wild reindeer or explore one of the many stunning and mysterious lochs. View pods of bottlenose dolphins from your exciting RIB on Moray Firth, or search for a certain famous sea monster on Loch Ness.
From the cities to the wilderness, the United Kingdom is an enthralling place for your next family vacation. One that your teens will want to return to time and time again…
