Bank Holiday Fun – Easter Events in Cardiff
If you’re looking for some family entertainment over the bank holiday weekend there are a lot of events in Cardiff and the surrounding area.
Here are some events at some of my favourite places to visit with the children. Most events have a small charge. Follow the links (if provided) for further information.
Easter Egg Hunts
The Royal Mint – Llantrisant.
If you are going to be visiting the Royal Mint this Easter then take up the challenge of finding the hidden Easter eggs and solve the puzzle. This isn’t a separate activity, you need to be a ticket holder. My children really enjoyed their trip to the Royal Mint, especially making their own coin. For further information see Royal Mint website.
Dyffryn Gardens – Vale of Glamorgan
Dyffryn Gardens are beautiful all year around but especially in the springtime. If you are visiting them this bank holiday weekend between 11am-3.30pm you can hunt for bunny’s clues to find a Cadbury treat. Please note that normal admission charges to Dyffryn Gardens still apply. For further information please see their website.
St Fagans National History Museum
On bank holiday weekend between 11am and 2pm you can take part in the family Easter trail. Charges of £2.50 per child apply. St Fagan’s is free entry, but parking charges apply. If you live locally consider an annual parking pass if you are intending to visit multiple times to save you money. Once you’ve completed the trail claim your prize! For more information see their website.
National Roman Legion Museum – Caerleon
Between April 8th and 23rd the National Roman Legion Museum have a sheep themed Easter trail. Hunt the escaped sheep on the loose in the museum to claim your prize. Entry of £1 per person applies. Their website has full information.
No trip to the capital is complete without a visit to the castle, and this Easter they have an Easter trail for children. Solve the puzzles in the castle and grounds to win a prize. Please note than normal admission charges apply, plus an additional £1 per person to do the trail. If you are a Cardiff resident then apply for your castle key! Find out more here.
Hopefully these Easter events in Cardiff will provide some egg-cellent (sorry…) inspiration for you over the Easter holidays. If you go to any of my suggestions I hope you have fun and especially that the weather is kind to us in South Wales and the sun shines for the whole two weeks!
