Easter in Kent 2021
The flowers are blooming, the sun has its hat on and spring is finally here in full force. Easter has arrived and we are so, so egg-cited for a break, it’s like Christmas has come again. Why? Because this Easter holiday is the start of making memories with family and friends once more. After months indoors, a simple walk, picnic or Easter trail with the kids or a couple of friends is EXACTLY the way we want to celebrate the long weekend.
Ready to get egg-cited about the next couple of weeks? Hop on over here and take a look at our round up.
Please always remember to check attractions' own websites before visiting and follow any new guidelines. Please also follow the government's guidelines regarding social distancing.
From 29th March families hopping down to Leeds Castle will be treated to an Easter Trail as part of their ticket. This holiday, get out in the acres of gardens, follow the trail and be on the hunt for colourful Easter boards and clues to solve a mystery puzzle. Meanwhile, true adventure seekers can go one step further (or higher) and take on an adventure up in the trees with Go Ape. Swing high, swing low, zip through the treetops, and enjoy magnificent views across to the castle.
59 or 9, it’s safe to say we’ve all got a bit of pent-up energy right now, so Mote Park has got to be the place to go this Easter for some thrill-seeking fun. Dare to take on the Sky Trail, master the climbing wall, or tour the park with a little off-road Segway adventure, or practice that hand-eye co-ordination with a go on the Dini Mini Golf. For the water babies, we recommend getting out on the moat on kayaks, canoes or paddle-boards for a real sense of freedom.
Speaking of getting out on the water, Canoe Wild are running an Easter trail with a difference throughout the Easter weekend. Paddle the River Stour by canoe, kayak or paddleboard, but don’t get too distracted by those beautiful views, because you’ve got Easter eggs to hunt! Look out for the Easter Bunny’s treasures as you sail along and soak up that fresh air and the joy of being out in nature once more.
Macknade Fine Foods
This Easter weekend we’re able to celebrate with a few of our nearest and dearest outside, so let’s make it a mini gathering to remember. With recipe boxes packed with local ingredients, Macknade is giving you the chance to whip up a delicious Easter feast for the gourmets in your life. Choose from lamb with salsa verde, Dingley Dell pork ribeye or Waste Kitchen’s aubergine and potato moussaka, with delectable sides and a dessert of lemon and rhubarb posset or a cheese board for the big finale.
Head to Dover Castle or Walmer Castle this holiday for a cracking quest through the castles’ grounds. Get the detective hats on, crack clues and go on search of dragon eggs on a trail for the intrepid explorer. Explorers will need to track down the hatched dragon for the ultimate reward of a chocolate treat and certificate.
This Easter weekend gather up the family and head to Betteshanger to meet a very special, secret guest (ok, we’ll tell you, it’s Peter Rabbit). Discover an Easter trail with plenty of activities and fun along the way, and free chocolate and Easter eggs for the children – now that’s got to put a smile on their faces.
Lunch to your door
Put down the wooden spoon and let the experts take care of the Easter Weekend dining this year! Holiday Day Inn Dover are cooking up a storm with a three course Easter lunch to be delivered to your door or collected. So go on, spend a little more quality time with the family and let the Holiday Inn Dover’s chefs take the strain.
The Isle of Thanet
Sea views and (mini) golfing greens await on the Isle of Thanet this holiday. Head on over to Quex Adventure Golf, pitch up at Rascal Bay Adventure Golf for 18 holes of dinosaur, pirate, safari fun (come on, what little one wouldn’t love that?), or take in sea views on Broadstairs seafront with 12 championship holes at Lillyputt Mini Golf. For the little adventurers, we recommend a Coastal Explorer Pack to help you identify the creatures of the coast and take on fun activities.
Special family memories await at Hever Castle this Easter break with an egg-cellent garden trail. Clues are waiting to be found, as you track a variety of little things that hatch throughout the gardens. While there’s plenty of fun to be had, there’s also a little learning to be done along the way, finding out about each that starts life in an egg.
