Whether Easter falls in March or April, there is so much to see and do here in Dorset and Hampshire. Most local attractions, such as Paultons Park, Peppa Pig World, and Marwell Zoo open once again and host fantastic themed Easter events.
The warmer weather means days can be spent on one of our nearby Dorset beaches building sandcastles, or even going for a swim if you’re brave enough! The New Forest is always full of life during the Easter holidays, take the children to see the famous Witches of Burley or simply watch the ponies grazing on the spring grass.
The local Dorset and Hampshire market towns and seaside villages are always great for a family day out, with Lymington, Christchurch, Wimborne, Wareham and Brockenhurst amongst our favourites. Most have great market days and many will have special Easter events especially for families, such as Easter egg hunts, fancy dress competitions and so much more.Read more Hide
