Hi DH DS (12) and I have a holiday in October Half term. Best hols for us have been York, Bath, Edinburgh, Rome and Naples, Granada. We're thinking of Barcelona but not sure enough for a week. We like mooching, history etc. Any ideas?

Definitely enough in Barcelona for a week. We're just back from doing it a second time with DDs 12,14 and 16.

We're also thinking of Barcelona for this half term.

Situated - do you mind me asking where you stayed?

Tallinn is beautiful with loads of history, but before booking in October I would research how cold it is likely to be and what time it will get dark.

Lisbon is meant to be fantastic, I've earmarked it for Feb half term.

We're off to Amsterdam in October, with our 12yr old and 8 yr old.
