While many British families head to the gorgeous beaches of the Algarve, increasingly Lisbon has been marketing itself as more than a city-break destination – particularly for those looking for a family-friendly vibe.

It is small enough to feel like you know it after a weekend and, with its rickety trams and winding back streets, it’s charming enough to have you instantly under its spell. Whether it is the child-friendly music-filled fado tavernas, the playfulness of the re-imagined dock area, or the open spaces and gardens of the historic Belém district, there is plenty to interest adults and children. And then there is the beach.
