Page contents

Do you need inspiration for Easter entertainment with the grandchildren?

Keeping children entertained at Easter can sometimes be a challenge… But keep them busy enough with these activities, and you’ll both have fun!

The Lake District – Easter Egg hunting with Peter Rabbit

There are 100 eggs hidden in secret locations around the Lake District, which you can use your digital map to find.

Search for the ceramic eggs whilst exploring the picturesque landscape. And If you’re lucky enough to find the eggs, you’ll win free entry to The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness on Windemere – that’s the next family outing sorted!

The Cinema – for the latest kids’ releases

If you’re more into sitting down and relaxing, then a trip to the cinema might just do it…

There are plenty of new films out; check out the latest releases at Vue cinema.

West Midlands Safari Park – Easter Eggstravaganza

The Safari Park is hosting extra Easter activities for the whole family at no extra cost.

So, as well as encountering animals on the safari trail and exploring the land of the living dinosaurs, you can enjoy competitions, egg trails and special shows!

There’s the adventure theme park for older kids – and the Boj giggly park for the young ones.

Just remember to lock your car door!

ZSL London Zoo – Superhero takeover

Do you know how Meerkats are immune to types of venom?

For the Easter holidays, London Zoo is celebrating all furry friends.  Children will be given their own comic book to guide them around the zoo, with interactive tasks on the route.

London Science Museum – Retro-gaming fun you might actually win at

Remember when you were good at video games?

Even if that’s never, you’ve got a better chance of winning than ever at the London Science Museum this Easter!

Power Up is billed as a fun way of introducing disinterested teens to the joys of  STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths); this new exhibition features 180 playable consoles spanning 40 years of gaming history, from Pac-Man to vintage Ataris –  all the way to up to the latest Virtual Reality releases on Playstation.

It’s a great way to bring your interests together in a shared experience!
