Easter 2013 - The Egg Hunt Is On

By March 12, 2013

Follow me on:

Easter is early this year. It may actually be over before the daffodils bloom, but that shouldn't stop you planning some Easter weekend jollies. Just dress up warm when you do.

As usual, some of the country's best stately homes, parks and National Trust properties are salting their gardens and grounds with Easter eggs, quiz clues and challenges. This year, though, there's a swing away from the emphasis on sweets and more toward family activities and discovery experiences. Don't worry, there will be plenty of chocolate too and loads of fun for the first big family outdoor events of the year.

Over in Stratford-upon-Avon and nearby, Anne Hathaway's Cottage is the scene of the Easter Sunday Trail - spot the bunnies and win a chocolate prize. Stop by there to hug and hear the new singing tree. Lots of new baby animals will be arriving just in time for the Easter weekend at Mary Arden's Farm. Shakespeare's mother's house is expecting several calf, lambs and piglets. Their planning Tudor dancing, music, story-telling, games, egg-dying, archery, children's trails and falconry displays during the Easter holidays.
