    Bath has truly leapt into Spring; the days are getting longer and brighter and the Easter school holidays are only a stone’s throw away. With this in mind, we want to share a range of fun activities to keep your little ones busy. As Bath parents (and owners of Bath franchise Pass the Keys), we always keep our ears to the ground to keep our family entertained. So, if you’re looking to visit Bath during the break, or if you’re a local; we have all scales of budget covered.

    There are spaces left for the Holburne Museum’s kids art camp days; Thursday 4 April is Japan Inspires, Tuesday 9 April is Print, Patter and Repeat and Wednesday 10 April is Cabinet of Curiosities. Holburne Art Camps provide a full day of creative fun for children, delivered by experienced artists.

    3. Free Easter bunny trail – Beckford Tower and Museum

    This Easter, families can enjoy a self-led garden trail, available in the grounds of Beckford’s Tower between 28 March to 14 April. No booking required! The bunnies in the garden have all escaped to send a message - collect a trail map from the Tower Gatehouse and then set off to hunt for hidden decorated bunnies. There are 16 named bunnies. Can you find all their names? Once you’ve completed the trail, the bunnies will have shared a secret message… What will it say?

    Families are invited to take a stroll to the Tower, whilst it’s closed, to enjoy the bunnies in the beautiful nature that surrounds the landscape of the Tower. Come and explore Lansdown Cemetery, establishing a communal sense that it is not just Beckford’s Tower and Landscape, it is Our Tower.
