If you think organising a trip away is difficult in your house you should try being the largest family in Britain.

The Radford family have set off on a trip up north to Scotland- and they’ve been documenting their trip on social media.

The Morecambe family of 24 initially had plans to travel to Portugal but these were scrapped after they looked into the cost of obtaining a PCR test some family members.

Sue Radford spoke to her YouTube followers and estimated that it would have cost £3,500 before the holiday had even been booked.

However, the family unveiled that they had another holiday plan up their sleeve when the summer holidays hit.

Parents Sue and Noel Radford managed the squeeze many of their 22 children into two campervans for a whopping 8.5 hour drive up to Scotland.

Judging from the photos, the younger children as well as some of the older kids appear to be on the trip.

Posting to Instagram, the family said “finally made it after an 8.5 hour journey- these camper vans are amazing absolutely love them.”

They added that the “most amazing memories are being made” and shared some snaps of the family enjoying the beauty of Scotland.

In the pictures, some of the children can be seen playing in the sand and parks.

The family were also spotted taking a boat across Scottish waters where they spotted some dolphins.

The family also enjoyed some time on the beach where they had barbeques and traced their name in the sand.

Noel and Sue even got to celebrate daughter Phoebe’s fifth birthday on the trip.

Fans of the family have been in awe of the family on social media, asking how they fit so many kids into two camper vans.

One person said: “Interested in the campervans! Have you rented them? How do you fit everyone into two?”

Another commenter wished the family well on their holiday.

They wrote: “Have a fantastic time, Sue .. looking forward to seeing lots of pictures.”

Fellow YouTuber, Sarah Ingham said: “Have the best time!”

Another Instagram follower said they spotted the family in the Scottish town of Cromarty at the weekend.
