Easter activities and events for the whole family!  

Easter Activities and Events

Entertaining the children can be a daunting thought in itself but when faced with two solid weeks to fill with Easter activities and events…well, let’s just say my head already hurts.

It can be tough to strike a balance between fun and affordable. It’s also difficult to satisfy the needs of the whole family especially when your children fall into very different age groups so I’m going to try and cover all bases. Better to be safe than sorry! In amongst it all is also Easter. I’ve compiled a list of some fun Easter activities and events in some of the areas we cover so you can get into the Easter spirit with minimal planning!

A day outdoors…

I think we really take for granted how wonderful a day at the beach can be, especially if it’s something easily accessible to you. You can sit back and relax with your current read whilst the little ones run riot on the sand. This seems like a pretty good combination to me. It can also be relatively inexpensive if you live close by. All you need is a couple of towels and a packed lunch! The same goes for the park. The fresh air will do everyone good and your purse will also thank you!

Support your local community…

Everyone has got to eat, right? Well instead of heading to a busy chain restaurant why not give something a bit more independent a try? You’ll often find the food is better quality and much more flavourful! Businesses like these are also often family-run which makes the whole experience feel so much more personal too.

You could always go down a different route if you’re feeling adventurous. The Broadstairs Food Festival is back and better than ever with a new location for its Easter Food Festival (now taking place in Victoria Gardens which is where the October Festival is always based). You can enjoy a walk along the seafront before diving into the culinary treats and local delights on offer.



Dover Castle

Pick up a quest booklet and trek through the grounds of Dover Castle, encountering old fashioned fun such as egg rolling as you go. Can you dominate the egg and spoon race before claiming your prize?


Peter Rabbit you say? Well, count us in! Follow the carrots to discover secret gems hidden around the park whilst taking in some fresh air and family fun. Chocolate treats are plentiful at beautiful Betteshanger.

Under 1 Roof Thanet

For something completely different that will certainly put a spring in your step, we have Bounce Fest! An inflatable assault course is the main attraction here but Under 1 Roof also boasts Bouncy Castles and an inflatable slide. This outdoor adventure is one for the little ones with seemingly unlimited amounts of energy!



Fishers Adventure Farm

For an Easter full of magical activities and events,  a trip to Fisher’s Adventure Farm is in order. With baby animals galore as well as a golden egg hunt, tractor & trailer rides plus a daring leap of faith with Sky Fall it’ll be a day of adventures your family will never forget.

Bodiam Castle

Nature trails are where it’s at here with themed activities ending in a chocolate egg. Beautiful surroundings with maybe even a sneak peek at the castle bats! Surely this is just the thing to add to your list of Easter activities and events.

Drusillas Park 

So for starters, we’ve got an Easter Egg Hunt which of course is great, it is the Easter holidays after all! BUT, with so many amazing activities to choose from you would be forgiven for forgetting about the chocolate altogether (I mean, I certainly wouldn’t forget but to each their own).

Animal exhibits, Safari rides, soft play and a sensory experience are just a handful of the goodies on offer at Drusillas. There is even a Jurassic Jungle for the dinosaur obsessed. don’t worry, I’m sure their safety procedures are on point. We don’t need any rouge raptors trying to steal your sandwiches!



Hinton Ampner

Ten activity points to journey through in your search for a chocolate treat (although an alternative is provided for those with dietary or allergen requirements). This family-friendly and incredibly inclusive experience is a must for anyone seeking a traditional Easter experience.

Paultons Park

If you’re a parent then I’m sure you’ve heard of the infamous Peppa Pig before. Well, love her or hate her, she sure is a hit with the kids and Paultons Park is the place to be. If you would rather avoid the little pink pig then don’t worry because the park has so much more to offer.


Birdworld is holding an Easter EGG-stravaganza this year complete with Easter egg Hunt Trail and daily talks so your little one can learn all about their favourite feathered friends. They’ve also got a great alternative to the gift of a chocolate egg if you’re lacking in that department. You can Adopt an Animal (flamingos anyone?!) from £29.95 which I think is a pretty cool gift.



Marsh Farm

With an Easter Eggstravaganza like no other on the horizon including the necessary egg hunt as well as Easter crafts and crazy golf, Marsh Farm promises an exciting day out with varied activities and treats for your children.


Find clues and solve the riddles for a delicious chocolate surprise at Barleylands. With a hatching station (and what could be more Easter than that!), animal feeding and bouncy pillows this is the most wholesome family day out you could hope for. My heart feels fit to burst at the thought of all of those baby animals!

Colchester Zoo

Face painting and ice cream? Count me in! With an Easter Egg Trail first thing followed by an Easter party later that afternoon, Colchester Zoo promises a full day of fun for the whole family. If that wasn’t enough you could spend hours and hours gazing at the huge array of animals in residence. Penguins, Giraffes and even a burrow for the aardvarks!


Enjoy the holiday’s everyone!
