It’s the first holiday of the year, and the final break before University turns into late nights, more coffee and exam stress – but before we think about that too much, we thought we’d look at some of the fun and exciting things you can do this Easter as well as some top driving tips to deal with stressful bank holiday traffic.
Where to go and what to do?
The Easter holiday brings more than just over eating chocolate and stuffing your face with Hot Cross Buns – it brings freedom! You’ve finally got a well-deserved break and you should make the most of it.
Sure, you can stay at home and bake some cupcakes, but where’s the Easter spirit in that? Why not check out local cookery classes that you and some friends can go to? Many offer Easter inspired treats at this time of the year – so who knows what delicious goods you could be making.
Go to a farm
Lambs, chicks, the country air and the smell of manure? That screams Easter to me! Take a day trip out to your local farm and visit the animals. Many farms hold special events around Easter that aren’t just for kids so check out what’s going on and get booked in – just don’t forget your wellies!
Take a trip to the seaside
A great way to spend Easter and relax before the final term is a day trip to the seaside! Walks along the beach, fish and chips, arcades, ice cream!? Seriously – what more could you want? Well, sunshine I suppose but we can’t promise that!
Have a mini getaway
If you’re looking for something that will fill a bit more of your time this holiday, why not look at taking a mini getaway? Log cabins, treehouses and lodges are cute and rustic ways to get away in the countryside and feel like you’re camping, without the stress of putting up a tent!
Preparing for the drive
If you’re thinking of heading out on the roads to any of the above, or you’ve made your own Easter plans, make sure you and the car are prepped for the journey! Unfortunately, roads around Easter can get pretty busy – but there are a couple of ways to make the trip more exciting.
