    A nice weekend in Swanage would be very family-friendly.

    The 'house wrecks' are the Kyarra and Ceritan (sp?). Absolutely loads of others to dive off of boats leaving the pier.

    Portland's great for diving with literally hundreds of superb wrecks available to dive in pretty much all weathers

    TBH anywhere along the South Coast has an excellent selection of wrecks, many put there by ze Germans on their previous European tours.

    So come on down to the South. It's warmer.

    St. Abbs. Perfect for cutting one's teeth.

    Unless the wind's easterly. Then not so much

    There are some wrecks in Stoney Cove.
    Paul.
    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    I don't know the south coast options well at all but wondered what could be a good option. Mull is great because decks are at 20 and less but you can get to 30 odd in scour for experience, so looking for something similar within a 4 hour drive ideally.
    Falmouth is about 6 hours away and a nice place to go and has shore dives and some shallow wrecks - have a look at http://atlanticscuba.co.uk/category/...-sites/page/2/ maybe

    Plymouth is another option, but more than 4 hours.

    That's no way to speak about your fellow divers!
