Easter Activities in Wiltshire
Easter is almost upon us, and as one of the most-loved family hotels in Wiltshire we have decided to compile a list of some Easter activities you might want to take part in.
Whatever you decide to do this Easter, our Wiltshire hotel and spa hopes you get to enjoy eggs, chocolate and relaxation!
There isn’t anything more delicious than a locally sourced Sunday Lunch – unless it’s an Easter Sunday Lunch of course! Join us at the Mulberry restaurant and you can treat your family to a sumptuous three-course Easter Sunday Lunch for just £25.95 per adult or £15.00 per child. Words don’t do the menu justice, so you can take a peek at Chef’s menu here. Children under 12 years will receive a complimentary Easter Egg, so make sure you save all your chocolate for after your visit.
The annual Canoe Race from Devizes to Westminster returns for another year in 2018. Taking place over the Easter weekend, you can head to Devizes on Good Friday to cheer on the participants and make memories that don’t involve chocolate! The perfect day out for families that like to be active, the race concludes on the 2nd April giving you plenty of time to explore the surrounding areas and even enjoy a picnic.
Chippenham’s town centre is ready to welcome spring – head there on the 31st March and your family can spend the day enjoying free activities. The Easter Bunny himself will be in attendance, as will a mini Easter farm of lambs, a miniature donkey, giant rabbit and chicks. With the chance to attend in fancy dress and competitions being held for the best Easter Bonnet, your littles ones will love the excitement of it all. There will even be a small soft play area and craft station!
This beloved thirteenth-century church can be found inside the military training area of Salisbury Plain. It is all that remains of the ghost village of Imber that was controversially evacuated for military training purposes in 1943. With access becoming less and less frequent, this Easter is the perfect opportunity to visit the village and see what remains for yourself. Occasionally a service is held at the old church too, so don’t forget to factor that in and bring your camera!
If you want to venture away from bunnies and chocolate, be sure to check out the Predators animatronic display at Longleat. On display from 24th March, this is set to be an impressive exhibition with a wide range of species from modern day predators to creatures who walked the planet millennia ago. If that doesn’t appeal to you, then there’s plenty of other things to do at Longleat Safari Park with the family.
