10 Ideas for Days Out over the Easter Holidays within an Hours Drive of Harrogate
Easter Holidays in Harrogate
Easter means its holiday time for you but also for your little ones! If you are not sure how to keep your kids entertained over the school break we are happy to inform you that there are loads of amazing events taking place in Harrogate and in surrounding areas within an hour’s drive.
To keep the little ones entertained for the two-week stretch, Harrogate Mumbler has picked out some of most fun things to do for families in Harrogate & Knaresborough this Easter…
Keep your eyes peeled for the Rhyming Rabbit on a hop about the garden trail and enjoy craft activities based on the picture book by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks and brought to you in association with Macmillan Children’s Books.
Over the Easter weekend, there’s a chance to meet the Easter Bunny himself as well as real-life versions of some of the book’s best-loved animals.
Hop along to Mother Shipton’s during the Easter Holidays and follow the trail to help Little Bo Peep find her sheep! You can also meet bunnies Betty and Clover and solve puzzles and clues for a chocolatey treat. The park will be transformed with props and actors, creating an engaging and interactive Easter event suitable for all the family.
