Five Egg Hunts To Enjoy Across England This Easter

The supermarket shelves are full of eggs, the signs of spring are showing, and the kids are eagerly awaiting the school holidays, which only means one thing – Easter is on the horizon!

Second to the chocolate, one of the best things about Easter is the opportunity to get outside and camp or go away in the caravan.

With the temperatures rising, dryer days coming, and campsites starting to reopen, there are many places to explore across the UK in the two-week break that the kids get from school. And with it being Easter and chocolate being the number one priority on many a child’s mind, it makes perfect sense that your UK exploring should incorporate an Easter Egg hunt. With that in mind, we’ve pulled together five egg hunts to enjoy this Easter and have added in our top picks for campsites nearby. Here goes…
