Not sure what Easter family activities in the UK are happening this weekend? I don’t know if anyone’s noticed, but it’s Easter this weekend, which for most people means spending time with friends and family, relaxing and enjoying a break. I’m one of those people that if the weather is nice is quite happy sitting in the garden with a book and a glass of something cold, however if you’re a bit more adventurous than I am and actually fancy getting out and about over the bank holiday, let me share with you a few ideas of places to go that might keep you and the family entertained………
Drusilla’s Park, Alfriston, East Sussex
For a fantastic family day out, look no further than Drusilla’s park – proud to present what is commonly believed to be the best small zoo in England, Drusilla’s has a huge range of animals for you to learn about and get involved with – see them being fed and played with – you could even be a zookeeper for a day! Drusilla’s is also host to several large play and activity areas for kids of all ages, Thomas The Tank Engine World, the interactive Eden’s Eye maze and opening on the 18th May Drusilla’s is delighted to share with you Hello Kitty world! For further details, opening times, entry prices and special offers see http://www.drusillas.co.uk/
The Original London Sightseeing Tour
Where to begin with what to do over Easter in London! Why not take in a multitude of sights and experiences by taking an open top bus tour? With three routes to choose from your day will be packed full of excitement as you drive through London’s most famous sights – Buckingham Palace, The London Eye, HMS Belfast and London Dungeon’s to name a few! With the option to ‘hop on hop off’ as you go through the route if there’s somewhere in particular you’d like to spend more time at that’s no problem – just pick up the next bus when you’re ready to continue! A great day out for entertainment and education for all the family – see http://www.theoriginaltour.com/ for all the details you’ll need.
Cadburys World, Birmingham
The clue is in the title of this one! Cadburys world is the Birmingham home to all things chocolate; follow the tour for a fully interactive experience which will show you the story behind Cadburys chocolate, from an Aztec adventure to a replica of the first ever shop opened by John Cadbury – featuring rides, live demonstrations and top secret behind the scenes tours, this is a treat and a half for chocolate lovers of all ages! Oh and of course, there also happens to be the world’s largest Cadburys shop onsite too…… visit http://www.cadburyworld.co.uk/ for more information.

Who doesn’t love Lego! In celebration of one of the oldest and favourite toybox fillers, Manchester’s Trafford Centre is host to a spectacular activity centre dedicated to lego – with a 4D cinema, Kingdom Quest laser rides, Master Model builder workshops, Ninjago laser training camp, and a factory tour to name a few, this is sure to keep the whole family entertained through Easter and beyond!
