If you’re staying with us this Easter holidays, there's lots of fun activities planned for families from willow weaving to flower crown making and a visit from the Easter Bunny!
Easter often signifies the start of spring - flowers, bunnies, eggs and perhaps a little sunshine.
We’ve outlined for you below what’s going here and around Bath.
Easter Activities at Woolley Grange
Our full Family Easter Activity schedule can be seen below. From willow weaving to flower crown making, nail painting and dog walking...you won't be bored! (Unfortunately the chocolate workshop has had to be cancelled)
The Beatrix Potter Trail runs from 19th March- 31st May and is great for the little ones. It is open to residents and for non-residents who book in for lunch orour Beatrix Potter-inspired afternoon tea.
In the Den there’s fun play (whilst the adults rest) as well as chocolate nests, chick crafts and paper plate bunnies.
Oh, and everyone staying on Easter Sunday gets to meet the Easter Bunny himself...or perhaps herself!
Spring Garden Afternoon Tea
Be sure to book in for our Beatrix Potter inspired afternoon tea. Such a treat!
Easter Activities around Bath
Bath’s caters for children rather wonderfully, and no more so than the Easter hols. Get creative making Easter bonnets at the Victoria Art Gallery; make animal fridge magnets at The Roman Baths or learn french knitting at the Bath Fashion Museum. The Grayson Perry exhibition at the Holburne is also well worth a family visit.
There’s lots of fun hunts and trails...once you’ve completed the Easter Bunny Trail at Woolley of course! You can roam underground caves and follow an illuminated trail discovering mystical chambers where fairies glisten...hunt down glow-in-the-dark eggs at the atmospheric Cheddar Gorge and Caves or search for Cadbury's eggs at the National Trust Lacock, Prior Park or Dyrham Park. There’s also the American Mardi Gras trail at The American Museum of Britain (combine this with a walk along the Bath Skyline Trail).
Paws up, who wants to meet Longleat’s newest arrivals? Koala Creek is very topical at the moment and Longleat has been helping our Australian cousins. A must for all of us who love these adorable marsupials (ask about family discounts if you are coming to stay at Woolley Grange). There's also an Easter Egg Hunt for 10th-13th April.
However you choose to spend Easter, we hope you have a really egg-citing time and look forward to seeing you soon!
