Trips for little people who want big adventures
 
01
RIDE THE HOGWARTS EXPRESS

Mini muggles can now take a ride on an 84-mile ride from the highest mountain in Ben Nevis to the deepest saltwater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis. Book a vintage compartment carriage to live out your Harry Potter moment. They might not have a Butter Beer, but you can enjoy a sumptuous cream tea as you journey across the scenic Scottish landscape.

02 
BE JAMES BOND FOR THE DAY

The sky is the limit when it comes to kids' imaginations, which is why a private jet company has joined with famed kids’ party planners Sharky & George to offer a holiday that your kids will never forget. They will have the chance to go on a secret mission and feel what it’s like to be James Bond for the day.

03
ENJOY A REINDEER RIDE

To see smiles a mile wide, book a reindeer adventure in Lapland. During the winter months, kids meet the real Rudolf, Donner or Blitzen and join them on a sleigh ride across the snow. It will be mugs of chocolate all round to finish and maybe a carrot for Rudolf.

04
STAY IN A LEGOLAND SUITE

What could make staying in a luxe hotel in London more exciting? When your suite is filled with Lego. The Rosewood London has joined with Legoland to create a truly unique experience. Kids will be welcomed at the entrance of their two-bedroom suite by two Queen’s Guards, before they enter the suite where they will find UK landmarks made entirely out of Lego and a portrait of themselves made out of the colourful bricks. If that’s not enough they will then enjoy a VIP helicopter ride to the Legoland theme park in Windsor.

05
DRIVE A MINI LAND ROVER OFF ROAD 

Kids don’t have to wait until they pass their driving tests to enjoy an off-road adventure — thanks to the new kids’ course at Gleneagles in Scotland they can go mud bashing now. Tots aged four to nine years old can make a splash in mini Land Rovers as they drive around a purpose-built course. So what we want to know is: Why didn’t this exist when we were young?
