New for 2024, you can hop aboard the Easter Bunny Train at Mid Hants Railway Watercress Line to entertain kids of all ages!

Let someone else do the cooking for you on Easter Sunday and enjoy a first class roast at one of our fine restaurants or cosy pubs. Check in to Winchester Royal Hotel, The Wykeham Arms or The Swan in Alresford for lunch.

Theatre Royal Winchester is also setting the stage for some live family entertainment from Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book (This adaptation based on Julia Donaldson’s book that delves into a range of stories features puppets and enchanting songs and is recommended for ages 3 – 8.) to Dear Zoo (based on Rod Campbell’s beloved lift the flap book, this adaptation sees his distinctive illustrations leap from the page in a show full of puppetry and songs).
