for what it is worth, pack your family into your car hitch up the trailer with your rib and head for Calais. Take the P & O ferry to Dover, Make sure you do not take any extra passengers

First travel to the Solent , launch at a secure marina where you can leave your trailer. Book Bed & Breakfast in Cowes or Yarmouth. Stay as long as you can and enjoy the area. You will for sure not be alone as many of us enjoy ribbing in the Solent. When you decide to visit your family up in Nottingham just leave the trailer and rib in the secure marina and collect on your way back home,

I will be at Wiatr i Woda in March so we can meet up and discuss your possible visit to the UK

I guess this thread has been an eye opener for you.

Thanks Andre. We have to meet in person.
Explanation for other people WIW means "Wind & Water" (boat show in Warsaw-Poland).

Many thanks for all for help and suggestion.
I think there are not a lot of people from Poland going to UK for ... vacation and fun.

Ideas mentioned by Andree seems to be very reasonable.
I will try to convince my family to visit UK and tow a boat.
After that I will book some marina for a week and bed & breakfast.

The problem is that my car has steering wheel on wrong side ...
But I saw some cars from UK in EU so maybe I will survive also.

I have never drive a car within UK ...

You'll be fine.

We get a fair few people coming on our roads with their cars set up the wrong way round... most are just fine.
