Easter is fast approaching us, with the school half terms looming and the Easter bunny just around the corner. This year, Liverpool is providing an array of activities and days out for the whole family, some costing next to nothing. Let’s take a look:
1. Eater afternoon tea at the Shankly Hotel:
The prestigious Shankly Hotel is hosting the tea on their rooftop ‘Garden of Eden’ on 17th April. The tea is available from 1:30pm-4:30pm, with a special children’s afternoon tea available on request!
Wraps, croissant’s, finger sandwiches, cakes and other sweet treats are just a few things on offer at the tea. Throughout the day there will also be a chance for children to meet the Easter characters and join in with sing-alongs, all before taking part in that all important Easter egg hunt.
Tickets range from £15.00 for a child to £30.00 for an adult, pre-booking is essential.
2. Liverpool ONE:
As you may have already realised, Liverpool ONE has already set out its Table tennis tables as part of its ‘PING’ scheme, to encourage people of all ages to pick up a bat and ball this Easter whilst taking a break from walking around the shops.
Liverpool’s reading trees can also be found in the city from April 8th, providing families with the chance to sit down and take a break whilst snooping through some timeless classics. The book lovers amongst you can take down your read or unwanted books and swap them for new ones in the tree trunks.
3. Liverpool’s nature trail:
For the inner explorer in you, Liverpool ONE is offering a nature trail, starting on April 1st. The trail is signposted all the way around Chavasse Park, offering children the perfect opportunity to discover different types of insects, plants and trees.
The trail is free to take part in and is estimated to take up to 30 minutes of your time. Nature booklets are available at the Liverpool ONE information centre on Wall Street, and once you have completed the trail don’t forget to return to the centre to collect your special sticker as a reward!
4. Sefton Park:
For those of you who are willing to venture further afield to Wavertree, Sefton Park is offering brilliant Easter activities over spring break. On April 23rd, the Sefton Park Palm House is hosting a ‘Family fun day’ with live music and the chance to win many prizes.
Admission is free!
