Easter activities in Somerset

From fancy firework displays to Easter trails, you might struggle to find time to relax during the Easter break, especially with so much going on in Somerset. Take your pick from the events list below and get started on your holiday.

Keeping kids interested during school holidays can be really difficult. Most just want to play games on their tablet or games console but when you’re away you want to make the most of family time.

Immerse yourself in countryside life with various egg hunts and spring activities in Somerset this Easter. You’ll be sure to find something for all interests in our events list for the school holidays.
