Easter is just around the corner and this year we’ve been blessed with a four day weekend! Now, we don’t get a four day weekend very often, so it only makes sense that we all make the most of it. Naturally, an Easter family day out will be the go-to. That way, we can get out and about, have a few laughs and grab some grub but as a family, honouring Easter and just having a cracking time together and making memories. So here are some of the best family days out for Easter.



Easter Eggcitement

When: Saturday 2nd - Saturday 16th April  

Where: Almond Valley Heritage Trust, Livingston, Edinburgh

Almond Valley Heritage Trust - a beautiful green space with a museum, farm animals, a river and children's play areas - is welcoming families to come and join their Easter-themed activities. Littluns can meet baby animals, hunt for eggs, watch the plastic duck race, ride a train and tractor, and unleash their creative side in the crafts area. You don’t get more Easter-y than that!

Easter Makers Fair


When: Saturday 16th April 

Where: The Shoreham Centre, Shoreham-by-Sea, Brighton

With around 50 stalls selling unique products, including cakes and other baked goods, jewellery, art, home decor, clothing, ceramic, health and wellbeing products and more, you're sure to have a good time hunting for an Easter gift. There will also be creative workshops for children, including a colouring competition and biscuit decorating. And prepare for a visit from the Easter bunny, who might have some treats! As if this event wasn’t already brilliant enough, there’ll be a raffle in support of Chestnut Tree House, a Sussex children’s hospice.

Families who rave together stick together. So why not kick off the Easter festivities early with a Thursday night family disco? The two-hour event goes down just a short drive away from Manchester in Stockport’s stunning Bredbury Hall Hotel. There'll be craft stations, great tunes, and you’ll get an Easter egg present at the end of the night. It’s the perfect way to start a brilliant four day weekend with friends and family.

Over in Cradley Heath, there’ll be a four-hour-long Encanto-themed Easter fun day with lots of fun activities for children.

Easter Sunday Family Carvery with Nicky Trix

When: Sunday 17th April 

Where: Mercure Tunbridge Wells Hotel, Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Multi-award winning hotel Mercure in Tunbridge Wells is inviting you to a stress-free Easter by taking the lengthy, tiring task of cooking off your hands.

Easter Egg Hunt at Winwick Hall


When: Saturday 16th April 

Where: Winwick Hall Winwick, Northamptonshire, Northampton

When celebrating holidays, we tend to stay indoors. And that’s fair enough at Christmas when it’s -2 outside and you’ve got heating, a table full of food and presents inside. But Easter is when the weather finally starts turning around. So it’s the perfect excuse to get outside. Winwick Hall has a beautiful green space and gardens for the chocolate Easter egg hunt and a tea room for recharging and enjoying light refreshments. A simple but fun way to get some fresh air and have an eggcellent time! We’ll see ourselves out.

Easter Family Yoga


When: Wednesday 20th April 

Where: Tara Yoga Centre, Cowley, Oxford

Who said you always have to stick to tradition? Why not make the holiday your own? Or start your own new family Easter traditions? You can’t really go wrong with yoga. Suitable for just about anyone - any fitness level, any age - it’s a great way to get moving while also finding your zen. As the Easter holidays can get pretty hectic, we think it’s a great shout for you and the kids to get stuck into something that can have positive mental and physical effects. Oh, and as it’s Easter, needless to say, there’ll be chocolate!

Easter Sunday Carvery

(This embedded post has since been removed)

When: Sunday 17th April 

Where: Mercure Manchester Norton Grange Hotel And Spa, Rochdale, Manchester 

Easter is for spending time with the people you love, not slaving away in a boiling hot kitchen just to clean everything up afterwards when you’re full and the post-roast nap is calling. Going out for a lovely Easter carvery is the perfect solution. You still get to tuck into a big, hearty Easter dinner but skip all the tiring cooking and cleaning!
