There’s plenty of Easter-themed activities from the Eden Project’s Chocolate Unwrapped Festival to the Easter Egg Hunt at Willows Farm, Hertfordshire.

We’ve planned for various weather too, with indoor attractions such as the Chill Factore in Manchetser (ideal for rainy days) right through to Rhossili Bay, voted Britain’s best beach (particularly nice when sunny).

No budget? Fear not. Some of our suggestions, such as the National Museum of Scotland, need not cost you a penny.
