Eurostar offers for Easter weekend

If the English springtime doesn't tempt you, how about a hop across the Channel? Book a train and hotel together with Eurostar at the moment, and you can save up to 40 per cent on rooms in Paris, Brussels or Lille over the Easter weekend. Perfect for enjoying the Easter egg hunt at the Chateau Vaux Le Vicomte near the French capital, or Belgian chocolate in Brussels.

Meal deal still on at Pizza Express

If you can't quite stretch to a weekend away, you can still treat yourself with Pizza Express' "buy one main meal at full price, get the other for £2.50" offer. Valid until 24 April, it can't be used on Easter Monday – but does include Easter Sunday and, if you live outside the M25, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. Visit for details on how to register.

The drinks are on Majestic

It's time to celebrate at Majestic, which is offering 20 per cent off wines from Spain and South Africa, as well as a host of other reductions – such as on the Fairleigh Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2010/2011 Marlborough, buy two bottles save £6, and the Prosecco di Conegliano Valdobbiadene Extra Dry NV, reduced from £12.99 to £8.99.
