Things to do over the Easter Weekend

The weather is looking much better for the Easter weekend, I have had quite a few messages about things to do over the Easter weekend with the weather being nice so I thought I would pop my ideas into this post.

Please do remember I am not in charge of the weather. These links (underlined) will take you to a previous blog post on this website.


๐ŸฃEaster Egg Hunts - You can find everything you need in this post

๐Ÿ‡Our Huge Easter Guide contains lots of lovely ideas

๐ŸฃGo for a walk in Sunderland

๐Ÿ‡Go on a sculpture Trail

๐ŸฃHead along to the beach and build an epic sandcastle. See if you can find some seaglass

๐Ÿ‡If the weather is super nice head out on a picnic

๐ŸฃGo on a Park walk you could even turn it into a bunny hunt for the youngest kids

๐Ÿ‡Head along to your favourite nature based attraction Some of ours include

๐ŸฃWWT Washington, Durham Wildlife Trust & RSPB Saltholme

๐Ÿ‡Visit a Lavender Farm. Wolds Way is our favourite and there's loads to do.

๐ŸฃVisit a Reservoir. The North East has loads of Reservoirs and they all have decent walks that you can do too.

๐Ÿ‡Head to the forest and go on the Superworm Hunt. Currently Kielder, Hamsterley, Guisborough and Dalby all have the Trail

๐ŸฃYou could take advantage of the wonderful National Trust and English Heritage properties we have. My personal Favourites are Fountains Abby, Ormesby Hall, Nunnington Hall, Belsay Hall, Lannercost Priory

๐Ÿ‡Head along to Redcar & Cleveland. There's loads to do.

๐ŸฃTake a walk amongst the plants at The Alnwick Gardens. They also have an Easter Trail on.

Our Pick of Top Events not to be missed are

Peter Rabbit Storytime Trail at Kirkleatham Museum. There's also 2 trails in the museum and a lovely forest walk. You will also find a lovely big play park too. Best of all it is all free

WWT Washington- Lego Trail, workshops (these have to be pre-booked) and Duck Trail

Preston Park have lots going on over Easter including the return of the Gauge Railway
