Spring City Breaks in South England
Experience Easter traditions in the Capital of England this spring! London is easily reachable by DFDS’s cross-Channel ferry routes. Explore the city’s vast churches and cathedrals and join in Easter services at the likes of Westminster Abbey or St Paul’s Cathedral. Spring is also the perfect time to enjoy nature: why not take part in an Easter-themed chocolate hunt in Hampton Court Palace gardens?
Alternatively, our Newhaven port is just 25 minutes from Brighton which also offers lots of Easter activities: visit Borde Hill Garden and take part in the kids’ Easter trail, and get stuck in with outdoor springtime fun for the whole family. Brighton beach is a must when visiting, so be sure to enjoy the beautiful view of the sun setting over the sea this Spring.
Fun-Filled Adventures in Kent
Kent, also known as the Garden of England, has many parks and castles that are worth a visit this spring. Take a DFDS ferry across the Channel and enjoy fun-filled adventures like bike tours, family days out, and even a trip to the seaside. Take part in traditional easter egg hunts whilst exploring the county of Kent as it blossoms in spring. Be sure to visit some traditional pubs and sample the local cuisine before you fill up on all the chocolate!
Easter Traditions in Scotland
Venture up North and celebrate Easter in the vibrant city of Edinburgh: from chocolate egg hunts to craft fairs, the whole family can enjoy an egg-citing trip to the Scottish capital this spring. Visit Almond Valley Heritage Centre in April to get creative with Easter crafts and take part in the Springtime Trail.
Why not uncover the hidden gems of Glasgow this April? Discover food and drink festivals as well as Easter egg trails at Holmwood House, Tenement House and Geilston Garden to name just a few. Soak up the springtime sun and make the most of a family holiday you’ll never forget.
