When it comes to planning a family holiday the wonderful city of Bordeaux never seems to get a look in. While usually overlooked for more popular destinations like Brittany and Cote d’Azur, it is a great place for adults and kids alike.


Packed full of family-fun activities, there is so much to do in this wonderful location you’ll be hard pushed to get the kids to leave!


1. Tour the city by tram

Hop aboard the glam tram and enjoy unlimited travel around the wonderful city.


2. Witness the Dune du Pilat

Just 65km outside of the city sits a sand dune that stands at over 100m tall and is the largest sand dune in all of Europe.



3. Spend the afternoon in Jardin Public

The stunning public garden is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Once there you can explore the arboretum, library or the Museum of National History.
