Easter in Hertfordshire 2021

Sophie Hewitt
26th March 2021

We’re springing straight into Easter, the holidays have arrived and we’re ready to celebrate! After months of hibernation, the thought of a breath of spring air, a picnic with our nearest and dearest and a stroll through the countryside sounds like just the thing to have us hopping for joy this season!

Ready to find out what outdoor activities are going on across Hertfordshire this Easter holiday? We thought so!

Please always remember to check attractions' own websites before visiting and follow any new guidelines. Please also follow the government's guidelines regarding social distancing. 

Ashridge Estate

Hop straight down the rabbit hole at Ashridge House this holiday as they host an Alice in Wonderland themed trail! Look out for clues to help find Alice and co in the gorgeous gardens and woodland and keep eyes wide open for the golden Easter egg for a chocolatey reward! Ready to take to the trails? Be sure to book up quick!

St Albans Cathedral

Any Hertfordshire local will know that the Alban Bun is the original Hot Cross Bun, so be sure to drop by or pre-order your very own tasty Alban buns from St Albans Cathedral this Easter weekend. Freshly baked and part of the Cathedral’s Easter tradition for more than 700 years, these Easter treats are a must-eat in the garden with a friend or two this year!

Hertford Easter trail

In the heart of Hertford, a special knitted trail is weaving its way through the town this year. Pick up a map from the town’s Tourist Information Centre and keep an eye out for hidden animals hidden in plain sight in the local shop windows by the Secret Society of Hertford Crafters! Complete the trail and you and your little ones could be in with a chance of winning a £30 voucher to spend in the town.

Willows Activity Farm

This holiday is ALL about the beautiful baby animals, right? So a visit to Willows Activity Farm has got to be on the cards this year. Look out for new-born lambs and goats, before wearing out your little balls of energy on the adventure playground. Gambolling lambs, open space and fresh air – what more could you want from a family frolic?

Afternoon tea

You can always rely on Knebworth House to add a little luxury to your weekend. After a day exploring Knebworth’s iconic gardens and kid-approved dinosaur trail, tuck into takeaway afternoon tea fresh from Knebworth Barns. Boxed and ready to collect after your day of fun, the scones, sandwiches and cake are the perfect way to round off your day, shared in the garden with a friend or two.

Activities at The Grove

Speaking of luxury, The Grove are once again helping to make your life a lot less stressful, with activities and fun to keep the kids busy this holiday. Archery, laser clay pigeon shooting and Segway experiences – we’re sure there will be more than a few young adventures jumping for joy at these activities.
