One of the UK’s Top Family Travel Blogs in 2024

Looking for UK family travel blogs? Yorkshire Wonders is a UK family travel blog written by me, Nikki Turner-Chaplin.  I hold an MA in English from the University of York and was an IT Consultant for ten years before starting a family.  Yorkshire Wonders was launched in 2016, and has received well over 5 million page views to date.

We travelled a great deal before having children.  As a child I lived in Saudi Arabia for a time, and then later in California as an older teenager.  In 2002 I took a round-the-world trip, stopping in Singapore, Australia, Hawaii and Los Angeles.  We have also had trips to the Maldives, Kerala in India, several of the Caribbean Islands, including St Kitts, St Maarten and St Thomas and lots of time spent exploring many countries in Europe.

Last year we took a press trip to Dubai and this year are heading to Abu Dhabi.

Being family travel bloggers, we love to write about family friendly holidays and accommodation. We regularly travel to the US, most often Orlando as we are huge theme parks fans. We have written extensively about Walt Disney World as well as SeaWorld.

We travel to the Peloponnese area of Greece frequently as we have a house there and have written many posts about the area and the local restaurants.

Family Friendly and Luxury Hotel Reviews

We do like a bit of decadence and regularly review luxury hotels such as Rixos the Palm in Dubai, Raithwaite Sandsend, DUKES London, The Churchill Hotel and Great Scotland Yard Hotel.

Another love of ours is cruising. We have sailed on several different lines including Carnival, Costa, P&O, Princess and more recently we have worked with Royal Caribbean to produce lots of content around the relaunch of Independence of the Seas after its multi million pound refit.

Closer to home we have reviewed family friendly festivals in the UK as well as spending many weekends away exploring fabulous glamping sites like Swinton Bivouac, North Star Club, Jollydays and Camp Katur.  We also had great fun reviewing Potters Resort in Norfolk and Haven Primrose Valley in Yorkshire, as well as the new Fairground Apartments and the Seaside Apartments at Butlin’s Skegness. 

We also review local and national theatre productions and restaurants as well as many, many local days out.

Spa Reviews

I am also a huge spa fan and have experienced many wonderful spas all over the world, from at home here in the UK, to Singapore, Australia, the Maldives and several Ayurvedic spas whilst on a fam trip to Kerala in Southern India.  We have recently reviewed the spas at the Swinton Spa and Country Club, The Titanic Spa, Wyboston Lakes, Middlethorpe Hall in York,  The Grand, York, Thorpe Park Spa, Leeds, Rockliffe Hall and Aldwark Manor near York.
