How to Spend Easter in Bath

Whether you’re looking for ways to enjoy a four-day weekend off work, or trying to work out how to keep the kids busy during the Easter school holidays, Bath has lots to offer this Easter...

Family Fun This Easter

Activities for Kids

Bath’s wonderful and varied museums are putting on a number of different activities for children and the whole family this Easter.

Get creative at The Holburne Museum painting birds, creating wreaths and giving pottery a spin; use wax crayons to design some beautiful pots, inspired by The Roman Baths' collection of pots; create your own button brooch at the Fashion Museum and make a galaxy pinwheel, inspired by the Pinwheel Galaxy at The Herschel Museum of Astronomy.

Easter Egg Hunts and Trails

Eggs-haust the kids with a fun egg hunt or trail at one of the many museums and attractions in and around Bath this Easter. Grab your basket and find the hidden egg clues at The American Museum’s Easter family fun trail; hunt down glow-in-the-dark eggs at the atmospheric Cheddar Gorge and Caves; learn all about the significance of portraits throughout history before designing your own at No.1 Royal Crescent; search for Cadbury's eggs at Prior Park and Dyrham Park; and eggs-plore the woodland at Bath Skyline.

A Slap-Up Roast Dinner

Of course, we can’t talk about Easter without thinking about roast dinners, and roast lamb is probably the most popular Easter Sunday tradition! If you’re looking for the perfect place to book your big family roast dinner in Bath, our Ultimate Guide to Roast Dinners is a great place to start, or browse all of Bath’s fantastic pubs to discover more.

Make the Most of Your Easter Bank Holiday Weekend

If the races are your scene, make sure to head to Bath Racecourse for their best ever race day this Easter bank holiday - their Good Friday Racing event.

The eleventh annual Bath Comedy Festival is set to be the biggest and best ever, with side-splitting stand up from household names and the best up-and-coming stars. There will also be cabaret, dining experiences, boozy wine trails and even a pop-up theatre bus too.
