    Is there anywhere that doesn't require travelling very far that you could recommend?

    My wedding anniversary is coming up and by then my daughter will be 8 months old. We were thinking of maybe going somewhere in europe possibly that didn't require getting to via plane. Or any other suggestions?

    Oops sorry, i live in london but was thinking of somewhere in europe possibly.

    I guess it depends where you are...

    depends on where you live!:thumbsup:

    If you like a bit of sun, then how about St Tropez or Monaco?

    what are you and you're daughter into. Sight seeing, clubbing, relaxing, outdoors/nature holiday....?

    Edit: re-read op. You're daughters 8months old. I would go with 059's suggestion of disney world, although she might be a bit too young to go on a lot of the rides she would still enjoy meeting all the characters :thumbsup:

    EuroDisney. You can go by train, it arrives right next to the Disney hotel, and if you book by April I think it is you get 40% discount.
    Depends what you want to do, but Disney still works for me and I'm in my 40's. Paris is easy to get to by train from there so day trips into the centre are easy.

    Was actually thinking paris would be nice, have you been before? I'm just worried about places being suitable for my daughter.

    Paris is lovely, busy and expensive, the people are awful tho !

    The areas around the Eiffel Tower and Sacre Coure are buggy friendly and nice if the weather is good. Getting around the museum's is the same as here so the Louvre etc. are no problem. The gardens and Versaille are nice again if the weather is good. It is a busy place so getting from one site to the next is best done by taxi especially with a toddler in tow. The metro is good better than our underground but still, not somewhere to be fighting your way around with a baby.

    Metro is very disabled and buggy unfriendly.

    I'd have to say that taking an 8 month old somewhere like Paris, or any city, would be a bit of a waste; your enjoyment would be tempered by the demands of someone who was having a pretty torrid time of it. In a year's time, fine.

    Why not a nice French village gite, perhaps in Brittany or Normandy, with a nice garden where the little one can have a roll around and not too far from a beach or two if you like that sort of thing? You'll be able to sit outside of an evening without worrying about nipping back up in a lift every so often to check up or having to employ a sitter.

    With infants there's nothing much to beat space and a bit of quiet so try not to end up anywhere confining or with too much else going on around you.

    the eurostar is really easy to take from london to paris and even further brussels etc. we did this with our kiddies, so much easier than taking a plane. You all still need passports though xxx

    Oops i completely forgot about getting her a passport! Lol.

    Germany?

    When my son was around the same age as your daughter we went to Nice. It has a lovely beach, and we hired a car for 4 days and went to Monaco and Cannes. It was a lovely adventure - great scenery and we even drove round the Grand Prix route - you can buy postcards and booklets with the details on.
