Whether you’re visiting at the height of summer or during the depths of winter, you’ll always find plenty of great things to do in Bristol. If you happen to make your visit during Easter, you’ll be particularly flush with fun options that suit everyone from grownups to young ones.
Here are just four of our favourite things that happen around Bristol during Easter.
- Egg-citing Easter Trail
Wapping Wharf is already one of Bristol’s most popular tourist destinations, so it’s probably already on your list. If you go during Easter, you can take part in the Egg-citing Easter Trail. Instead of seeking out chocolate, you’ll keep your eyes peeled for brightly coloured eggs set in the windows of independent shops, and you’ll find those shops stretching from Gaol Ferry Steps all the way to the Cargo shipping container development. Last year’s event went on from March 24 to April 8 and kicked off with a visit to The Bristol Cheesemonger for an activity sheet.
- Easter at Bristol Zoo
Bristol Zoo is another attraction that’s almost certainly already in your sights. With over 300 mammals including everything from Asiatic lions to red pandas, it’s a top spot for nature lovers. During Easter, the team at Bristol Zoo put together a trail of discovery that challenges younger visitors to match animals with egg stickers and race the rest of the family to spy out all zoo inhabitants.
- Services at Bristol Cathedral
If you’re on the lookout for something a little more traditional, why not head to Bristol Cathedral? Founded in 1140 and consecrated in 1148, it’s one of the city’s most stunning attractions and most popular places of worship. You can attend Easter services throughout the holiday.
- Enchanted Easter at Wild Place Project
Much like Bristol Zoo, Wild Place Project is an ideal place to catch a glimpse of some exotic wildlife. They make things even better during Easter by letting children help the Easter Bunny find his golden eggs. Kids can then make a wish and hang a colourful ribbon on the Magic Wishing Tree to make sure it comes true.
