10. Thames path, London
Just because you’re in the capital for Christmas, doesn’t mean you have to miss out on a scenic walk. The Thames Path runs for 180 miles from Gloucestershire to the Thames Barrier and is ideal for a family outing. There’s lots to see that will keep little ones interested, particularly the 4.5-mile stretch from the Thames Barrier to Greenwich going past the Cutty Sark and the Royal Observatory. Or the London Eye to Putney (eight miles), past Battersea Power Station, is a good bet if you want to show visitors some of London’s most iconic landmarks.
