Easter Egg Hunts for Kids

If you’re thinking of visiting the Lake District with kids this Easter, Easter Egg Hunts are a must.

The National Trust’s running an Easter Egg Hunt at Wray Castle, in Ambleside. This family friendly event runs during Easter weekend, from the 23rd of March until the 1st of April from 10am until 3:30pm. It is recommended for visitors to wear appropriate clothes and footwear, as it could still be cold around this time of the year. If you’re a wheelchair user, or are a visitor with reduced mobility, please note that there are some steps along the trail, as it takes place along the grounds of the Castle.

Entry is only £3, and it includes a map and Bunny Ears. Once you complete the trail you can pick which Easter egg you want, among diary, vegan or Free Form options!

The National Trust is running many other Easter Egg Hunts across the Lake District, such as Acorn Bank, Sizergh (ideal for wheelchair users), and Allan Bank.

Enjoy an evening of entertainment at The Forum

If it’s a rainy day and you’d rather spend some time indoors, we highly recommend visiting The Forum in Barrow-in-Furness. This theatre and art centre always has plenty of shows running, from family friendly concerts to pantomimes, dance and even the circus!

The Forum aims to bring a lot of entertainment and fun activities to the local community in Barrow-in-Furness and the surrounding areas. This venue is fully accessible and family friendly.

Barrow-in-Furness is about a 40 minute car drive from Park Cliffe, making The Forum part of the perfect one day trip destination.
