In Easter

With Easter being a bit later this year, there’s even more time to book a break to Wiltshire. There's plenty of family fun to be had, Easter egg hunts, delicious lunches and action-packed sporting events. Find out what you can get up to here.

Go on an egg trail

Wiltshire has egg trails galore! Cadbury Easter Egg hunts at Mompesson House and Lacock Abbey, Lydiard Park Easter Trail,  and the East Egg-spress at Swindon & Cricklade Railway are all good ones to go to and take the pressure off having one at home!

Enjoy a special lunch for all the family

Some eggstra special places for Easter lunch include, Restaurant Hywel Jones at Lucknam Park, Red Lion Free House East Chisenbury and Whatley Manor The Dining Room.  However all of Wiltshire’s restaurants are fantastic and will have put together an Easter Sunday lunch menu. Keep an eye on our Easter offers to find out where you can grab yourself a bargain!

Spectate at a sporting event

April is definitely the start of many major sporting events in England. The Grand National, Boat Race and London Marathon all mark the start of the season. In Wiltshire we have racetrack days at Castle Combe Circuit and the Devizes to Westminister Canoe Race which are both great events to get involved in over the Easter weekend.

Keep the kids entertained and make some Easter crafts at the Pound Arts Centre. Or for adults create your own tote bag at Easter Tote Bag Printing with Melanie Evans and Easter Guests.

See Wiltshire from above

Celebrate Easter with a wonderful, unique view of Wiltshire from a hot air balloon. April is the start of the season for Aerosaurus Balloons but you also have until October to book a flight so plenty of time! Definitely one for your bucket list.
