I would like to take my daughter for a weekend away just the two of us for her 10th birthday. Her birthday is in the summer, but i expect we’ll go in autumn when we have an inset day. I was thinking mainland Europe, but open to any suggestions. Thanks!

Harry Potter studios and a day in London? <ignores mainland europe thing> depends what you like to do, shop? museums? fun activities?

oh watching with interest. I just started a thread about going to paris 1-3 days either with a similar aged dd or my mother.

Thanks. We are fairly close to Harry Potter studios, so although she loves Harry Potter, I’m not sure that would work.

She is fairly easy to please... likes museums (to a degree), shopping, nice meals out etc. She fancies Barcelona. I was wondering staying in a hotel with a spa-or at least a hotel with pool/jacuzzi. Do you think they’d let children in?

I’ve had success with that age group with Paris, Barcelona, Venice and Amsterdam. Amsterdam and Venice were particularly good as they are compact and feel very different to a big UK city.

If you go to Barcelona you could also visit Port Aventura for a day if DD likes theme parks .

Copenhagen with Tivoli and more H &M stores than you could ever want is lovely.
Amsterdam has lots and is a lovely city if you avoid the red light district.
Reykjavik- blue lagoon, glaciers, geysers, whales, wild swimming.

Gothenburg is lovely, I agree. Upper house has a glass swimming pool suspended 22 floors above the road. A trip to the islands by ferry is a nice way to spend to spend the day.

I'd suggest Paris.
There are some fantastic ideas here including shopping and eating suggestions.
I've got a DD of similar age and in Paris we really enjoyed this It's a parent and child cooking workshop in English, where together you make a three course French meal.

Ahhh Amsterdam is perfect for that age.

I'm an Amsterdam blogger and there are loads of suggestions on my site including a proposed itinerary.

More than happy to help if you have any specific questions xx
