Best Easter egg hunts 2019 from the National Trust to Peter Rabbit

If you’re looking for Easter activities for the kids , then Easter egg hunts can be a quick and easy win.

They’re often budget-friendly, an easy way to let the kids get rid of heaps of energy, and there’s a chocolate prize at the end.

While you can create your own at home, this can be quite time consuming and involves a fair bit of planning – so sometimes it’s easier to find a pre-organised one, and make a fun day out of it.

Luckily there are heaps of brilliant egg hunts across the UK, and they often come with extra activities from arts and crafts or even meetings with the Easter Bunny.

To give you a helping hand, we’ve picked out some of the best Easter egg hunts across the UK you won’t want to miss…
