Easter half term is a great time to get out and about with the family, but where can you go that everyone will enjoy? Here are some of our top picks.
Creative Play at Legoland
If your little ones love being creative and building, then they’ll love the varied attractions at Legoland which are designed to appeal to children aged 2-12 (and their parents). There are rides, interactive events, toys and a huge Duplo area where little ones can be as innovative as they want without limit. Families will enjoy the cafes, shops and other attractions, with plenty of physical play alongside the mental stimulation. The attraction is based in Windsor, and although it does get busy at Easter, it’s well worth the visit. There’s even a hotel if you want to stay over for the night. Look out for different deals on ticket prices to get the best rates, including family and group tickets.
History and Excitement in London
If you fancy a trip to the capital, then the Tower of London is a must. Enjoy the Crown Jewels, walk along the ramparts, learn about the incredible history of the tower and see the Beefeaters. Why not combine it with a trip to London Zoo and stay over for the weekend? If you want to make a longer or more action-packed trip of it, then it’s well worth looking at the London Big 6 ticket, which gives you entry to six leading attractions for the price of three. The attractions are the London Eye, the Sealife Centre London, Shrek’s Adventure, Madame Tussauds, the London Dungeon and the London Eye River Cruise. Find a great price and the latest discounts at.
The Kids’ Pass
For just £1 you can sign up to the Kids’ Pass and enjoy discounts off leading attractions, restaurants and cinemas in your area. The pass is ideal for families who may want to do a range of activities with their children over Easter but without paying full price on the entry fees. Offers include 10pc off GoApe, 49pc off at Drayton Manor, 25pc off at Diggerland and 24pc at Laser Quest. You can also enjoy 40pc off at the cinema, which could be a good choice if the weather doesn’t play ball over the holidays!
High-Octane Excitement at Chessington
If your kids are clamouring for excitement, then how about a trip to Chessington World of Adventures? It’s packed with rides, has its own zoo and GoApe course and a fantastic Gruffalo-themed event space. As it’s one of the UK’s largest activity parks, there are plenty of facilities and amenities to make your trip as enjoyable as possible and even a hotel so that you can get out and on to your favourite rides as early as possible.
Remember too that your local area is likely to have activities on offer for families at Easter, from local walks along national trails and in parks through to special events at your local leisure centre. Get out and about and enjoy the fresh air and spring with your family this Easter Holiday – and work off some of those chocolate Easter eggs in the process!
