Those looking to bring some excitement and culture to family life have been told that visiting some of Britain’s cities will provide a vibrant and fascinating insight.

Tom Hall, editor for the Lonely Planet, said that places like Newcastle and Birmingham have changed hugely in the last few years.

He went on to say that there are more events and festivals taking place around Britain than ever before, with many of them being things which will not break the bank.

“I went to Glasgow earlier in the year and was absolutely blown away by the amount of things there were to do. Fantastic galleries, really interesting history, great riverside and really good shopping. There is lots to do,” he added.

It comes after research from lastminute.com found that 51 per cent of Brits failed to claim their full holiday allowance in 2009.

So far this year, 45 per cent have said that they unused holiday left to take, which equates to at least 13.1 million days of unclaimed down-time.
