Easter Days out in Lancashire

It’s Easter weekend and for the vast majority it means a welcome few days off work, enjoying the Bank Holidays. Sadly, the British weather is once again looking a little unpredictable but when has that ever stopped us having a good time! Living on the Fylde Coast we’re extremely lucky to have such a beautiful coastline but there’s so much more to explore in Lancashire. Therefore, we decided to pop a few ideas down for Easter days out in Lancashire.

Easter Egg Roll in Preston

If you fancy joining in with the tradition of egg rolling, head to Avenham and Miller Park in Preston on Easter Monday! People have been rolling eggs here for hundreds of years but more recently have chosen to use chocolate eggs rather than the hard boiled variety! There will also be free children’s workshops and an Easter bonnet competition plus food & drink stalls throughout the park. For more information, click here. 

The Beauty of Beacon Fell

Beacon Fell Country Park
Just a few miles off the A6 near Goosnargh, Beacon Fell Country Park spans 185 acres of conifer woods and moorlands. With plenty of parking, the park is a popular spot for people of all ages to enjoy a network of forest paths leading to the summit which is 266m above sea level. Here you can enjoy spectacular views of the Forest of Bowland, Morecambe Bay and if it’s a clear day, the Isle of Man. Once you’ve worked up an appetite there’s plenty of places to take a picnic or a well-earned coffee and cake at the visitor centre. Find your way by clicking here.

Hunting for Eggs

If you visit Rufford Old Hall near Ormskirk between the 14 – 17 April, you’ll be able to take part in the Cadbury’s and National Trust Easter Egg hunt around the formal gardens. The beautiful Tudor manor house has over 500 years of Hesketh family history, with rumours that William Shakespeare once stayed there. As well as the egg hunt there’s also free children’s crafts and family games to play. To get there take junction 27 off the M6 and head down the A59 towards Parbold and then Rufford. For  more information click here.

Scarecrows in Wray

Scarecrows at WrayWray is a picturesque village in the Lune Valley, just north of Lancaster. Every year it hosts an annual Scarecrow Festival, with villagers displaying their best creations for visitors to enjoy. This year’s theme is ‘Traditional Tales’. The festival runs from the 22nd April to the 1st May. During the 10 day event there’s also a 10k run, 100k cycle ride, maypole dancing, farmers market, funfair and giant scarecrows parade, a true sight to behold. To get there take the M6 to junction 32 and then head along the A683 towards the Lune Valley interchange.  Visit their website to read more about the festival.

Whatever you decide to do  this Easter, don’t forget to check the travel before you set off.
