Camping is a great way to discover the best of nature and wildlife in the UK. Whether you decide to go camping, glamping or caravanning, there's plenty to keep the whole family occupied on a budget, such as cycling, orienteering, and geocaching.

Camping with toddlers in the UK

If you're taking a toddler camping, you should be extra prepared for every eventuality, and ensure that you take a first aid kit, enough snacks to last you for the duration of your trip, any toiletries you may need for your toddler and plenty of entertainment for the drive to the campsite.

There are a few safety precautions that you should consider when travelling with toddlers which include avoiding campsites near natural dangers such as rivers and lakes, and making sure that the campsite is secure if they do try to run off. It's also a good idea to take out comprehensive family travel insurance in the event of document loss or cancellations.
