Best things to do over Easter Weekend

Easter weekend is nearly here! So, that means a short break for the whole family. Four days off is a lot of time to fill, but you won’t want to be stuck indoors all day when there are so many fun activities and events going on. Here’s our round-up of the best things to do this Easter.

The Passion of Jesus at Trafalgar Square

Every year, a full-scale performance of the final days of Jesus takes place in Trafalgar Square on Good Friday. It’s an epic show and the whole production is completely free. Better yet, no tickets are required. Huge crowds normally gather – the performance is also broadcasted on large screens. It’s an open-air spectacle that your whole family will surely love.

Whipsnade Zoo

Visiting Whipsnade Zoo is a wonderful way to spend the Easter holiday. It’s the largest zoo in the UK and it features over 2,500 animals. There’s so much to see that you could easily spend the entire day there. You won’t want to miss out on the chance to see the UK’s largest herd of Asian elephants or the African lions!

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

Join the Cadbury Easter Egg hunt for the perfect day out! The egg hunt took place in Hare Hill, Cheshire last year and is set come back this Easter. It’s a self-guided hunt to find clues, solve puzzles and find those chocolate surprises. So, round up your family for a day of fun and exploration.

Blue Planet Aquarium

Cheshire is home to Blue Planet Aquarium, which holds the title for the largest collection of sharks in the UK. It’s not every day you get to walk through an aquatic world, so why not check it out this Easter weekend? Although it’s usually very busy on weekends, you’ll still be able to get magnificent views of the underwater inhabitants. It also offers a ‘diving with shark’s experience’ for both adults and children. It’s a wonderful day out for all the family!
