Easter Days Out In Kent & Sussex
April brings Easter time and, because it is a little late this year (21st April), the weather should be well on the way to warming.
Indeed, some Easter weather has seen temperatures rise to the high 20s, whilst others have brought snow!
Whatever the weather, Easter provides an opportunity for some wonderful days out with the family. Drag yourself away from the garden now that bulbs are bursting forth and blossom is opening, prise the kids from their iPad and take them on an Easter egg hunt.
National Trust properties in the South East have a host of fun days during April, including:
• Bateman’s in Burwash has an Easter ‘nesting birds’ theme.
• Bodiam Castle in East Sussex wants to encourage young people to learn more about nature as they hunt for their eggs.
• Emmetts Garden in Sevenoaks has devised a ‘Top Trumps’ Easter theme.
Meanwhile, the Hop Farm in Paddock Wood – recently named Most-Searched Animal Day Out in 2018 by daysoutwithkids.co.uk – is hosting Easter fun for all the family, The World Garden at Lullingstone is kicking off the new season with an Easter Trail and Quiz, and there’s a Bluebell Festival at Hole Park Gardens, near Cranbrook.
