5. Easter Adventure Quest at Bolsover Castle
A king, a butler, a Roman centurion, or even a monk from centuries ago will be on hand to help you on your quest as you explore Bolsover Castle. Crack the clues to win a chocolate prize on the treasure trail. This English Heritage property, which is just a 25 minute drive from Sherwood Forest, underwent a £1.3m makeover recently, bringing it right up to date - for a 17th Century castle.
6. Moor Easter fun in Yorkshire
Easter events abound in the North York Moors National Park. At the National Park centre in Danby you can join in with Marvellous Mammals, Amazing Owls, Happy Hare Day, and Minibeast Monsters, as well as trying your hand at worm charming! At Sutton Bank, which is a 39-minute drive from Cropton and Keldy, you can celebrate the arrival of spring with themed crafts, trails, and treasure hunts.
7. Go fishing for Easter eggs in Oban
Easter at a sea life sanctuary? Never say we don’t offer variety with our Easter egg hunt recommendations! The Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary in Oban is fantastic and well worth a visit at any time of the year. But with an egg hunt – well, what are you waiting for? There are 1,000s of mini eggs waiting to be found and the hunt will take place on Easter Sunday. Ideal if you are staying at Ardgartan Argyll.
8. Castle crafts and a Tartan Skiddadle in Scotland
Stirling Castle is hosting a weekend of Easter family fun. Step into history for a few hours with heritage themed crafts in the magnificent castle setting. Closer to Strathyre, on Easter Saturday (15 April) look out for the runners in the Great Tartan Skidaddle as they finish their 31 mile Duathlon in Callander. Expect a riot of tartan and tweed!
9. Enjoy a Happy Easter with Forest Holidays
We have lots more Easter fun for you when you stay with Forest Holidays. Meet the Easter bunny, have fun decorating chocolate pizzas, and enjoy Easter treats in the Forest Retreat.
