With Easter weekend in late April this year, the weather might just cooperate with visitors to Brighton who can participate in some super fun, family-friendly outdoor, as well as indoor activities.
At the Sea Life Centre Brighton, the new ‘Superheroes of the Sea’ exhibition brings together the biggest, fastest and most clever creatures of the sea.
The Volks Electric Railway opens up for the summer on 22 April. This only-in-Brighton experience is a short and sweet ride on the country’s oldest electric railway from the Brighton Pier to the Marina. Trains run every 15 minutes during the day, making it simple to soak up spring sun and fit in some shopping as well.
For the kids, the Easter Egg Hunt and Easter Egg Rolling Competition is taking place on the 25 April at Devil’s Dyke from 11am to 3pm. The Easter Egg hunt involves a quiz sheet, a map and prizes for all, but the real fun starts with the rolling competition. Make sure to bring your own hard-boiled egg, and the one who manages to roll their egg the furthest down the Dyke valley wins.
The Ginger Fox country pub just 15 minutes outside of Brighton will also be hosting an Easter Egg Hunt everyday from Saturday to Monday 23-25 of April. Kids and the whole family can follow clues throughout the gardens to win a prize, plus proceeds go to local children’s charity, Rockinghorse. Parents will surely enjoy their time, as the Ginger Fox has been awarded a Bib Gourmand by the Michelin Guide yet remains a relaxed, local country pub.
For the an enjoyable evening of music on 25 April, tickets are still available for Katie Melua, on at the Brighton Dome, which is also hosting an official Easter event on 23 April when cabaret performer Lorraine Bowen delivers lessons in singing and dancing in a variety of styles for all ages and levels of ability.
