Top winter attractions to visit with a caravan
When the colder weather begins to set in, that does not mean you cannot make use of your caravan to enjoy some of Britain's indoor attractions during the winter months. Before you set off on your break though, make sure that you have appropriate caravan insurance to protect you from any problems you may experience as a result of bad weather, or any other issues you might face while on the road.
So, where can you go for a great winter break in your caravan? Here are three top choices:
The Eden Project, Cornwall
As one of the perennial favourite caravanning destinations, you may be familiar with Cornwall during the summer months, but there is still plenty to do here when the weather is not suitable for sitting on the beach.
The Eden Project in Cornwall is a great place for children and adults to visit, with lots to keep people of all ages busy. If you are planning a quick getaway over the October half term, you might want to join in the Halloween celebrations, when there will be an ice rink, disco and the chance to make your own spooky craft items - and even better for families, kids go free!
In fact, the ice rink will be open throughout the winter, while live music shows are also scheduled on certain evenings for all to enjoy.
The World of Beatrix Potter, Lake District
If you would prefer to head north for a winter caravanning adventure, then the Lake District may be at the top of your list. While the national park is best known for its fantastic walking opportunities - many of which can still be enjoyed during the colder months - there are also some wonderful indoor attractions in case the weather turns!
One such example is The World of Beatrix Potter, where you can go on an interactive adventure to learn more about the characters created by the author, such as Jemima Puddleduck, Peter Rabbit and Samuel Whiskers.
A short film will get you in the mood to meet some of Potter's animals and you will then be able to see recreations of scenes from the books, as well as learn more about the author herself and how the Lake District influenced her tales.
Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery
If you are hoping to enjoy some culture on your holiday in a caravan, you might want to try staying near Norwich and popping to the city's Castle Museum and Art Gallery during your trip.
The castle itself dates back over 900 years and once inside you will discover a host of exciting exhibitions, from those relating to life as a Viking to installations about decorative art and design.
You can even take a tour of the dungeon if you want to learn more about the murkier side of the fortress's history.
