Easter Family Activities in the UK

Not sure what Easter family activities in the UK are happening this weekend? I don’t know if anyone’s noticed, but it’s Easter this weekend, which for most people means spending time with friends and family, relaxing and enjoying a break. I’m one of those people that if the weather is nice is quite happy sitting in the garden with a book and a glass of something cold, however if you’re a bit more adventurous than I am and actually fancy getting out and about over the bank holiday, let me share with you a few ideas of places to go that might keep you and the family entertained………
