Easter Adventures Across The County

Colourful blooms burst into life. Eating al fresco while the sun shines on your face. Birds chirping to soundtrack your afternoon wanders. This can mean only one thing: spring is just around the corner, and with that comes Easter. To celebrate the long weekend at the end of the month, here are our top spots across the county to soak in the joys of new beginnings, abundance, and the long-awaited thaw of winter.

Warner Bros Studio Tour London

The changing of the seasons is truly magical, so this Easter, we’ll take a trip to the wonderful wizarding world of Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. Witness behind-the-scenes secrets and skills that went into making this beloved series, with tours around sets, glimpses into the crafting of costumes, and sneak peeks at how they pulled off that on-screen magic. Let the Butterbeer flow as you delve into the excitement, “ooh-ing” and “aah-ing” your way through The Great Hall, Diagon Alley, and much more. So let your day out unfold, and the fun will begin faster than you can say “Wingardium Leviosa”.


Knebworth House and Gardens

Easter wouldn’t be without a trail full of adventure, treats, and the beautiful outdoors. Luckily, that’s just one part of Knebworth House’s Easter extravaganza. Throughout the Bank Holiday Weekend, you and the little ones can enjoy a day out like no other. Set against the backdrop of the stunning Tudor home, scope out the grounds as you take on the challenge of the Easter Trail, fit with classic Easter characters and puzzles to solve. Pack a picnic and get ready for the perfect kick-start to your spring.


Henry Moore Studios and Gardens

Reopening on the Bank Holiday weekend, the Henry Moore Studios and Gardens are the perfect place to take family and friends while in Hertfordshire this Easter. Combining the county’s jaw-dropping natural landscapes and some of its brilliant creativity, an adventure to this world-renowned artist’s former studio is a must on any Herts bucket list. Re-energise in the Rosey Lea Café, wander the studios and 70 acres of gardens, or head to one of their fantastic family events.


Hertfordshire Zoo

The recently re-branded Hertfordshire Zoo has opened its doors to visitors, so who’s ready for a wild day out to remember? As home to some of our favourite animals in Herts, you can travel the world daily, visiting black lemurs in Madagascar, tigers in India, or the kookaburra in Australia. Stop for lunch on your jungle adventure in the Land of the Tigers at their Bamboo Kitchen – an Asian cuisine restaurant with a 180-degree view of the tiger territory.


St Albans Cathedral

Join the members of St Albans Cathedral this year for various events across the Easter period. Whether it be a candlelit Easter Eve service, Easter Sunday services joined by the Cathedral Choir, or an Easter Monday pilgrimage into the town, you can enjoy the Cathedral in all its wonder this holiday. For an extra special Easter treat, stroll down the road for a warming Sunday roast at traditional British pub Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, said to date back to 700AD – talk about drinking in some rich history.


Natural History Museum

Get the little ones in the mood for some learning, and head along to the Natural History Museum in Tring, where they can soak up plenty of fun and interactive information. With displays of creatures worldwide, this is sure to get their attention. Plus, don’t miss out on the museum’s Easter egg hunt – discover what egg-laying animals lie in the museum, hunt for their eggs, and see how many you can find.


Cassiobury Park
