Make the most of your Easter weekend in the UK!  April 18th, 2019


Daffodils, magnolias, camellias, azalea and rhododendrons bloom in the inviting balmy climates of spring, adding vibrant shades to the woodlands, city parks and gardens in the UK. It’s the first bank holiday succeeding the bleak months of January and February, and there’s a charming atmosphere of annual rebirth. Here are five fun things to do during your four days long Easter bank holiday.

Take the family to the Chester Food, Drink & Lifestyle Festival


It’s the biggest festival in the UK during the Easter holidays, and you don’t want to miss this, especially if you consider yourself a “foodie”. Expect to see over 150 artisan food and drink exhibitors, food presentations by star chefs, and a free, fun cooking academy for the tiny chefs! There is also an exciting Camperfest camping at Chester Racecourse which is a great place to visit in your Camperbug motorhome or campervan hire! If you love pooches, you’ll enjoy the Canine Capers dog show in Little Staughton!

Meet a koala bear!

Longleat Safari and Adventure Park in Wiltshire is excited to introduce its newest members – koala bears! The fluffy pouched mammals will enjoy their new home, Koala Creek alongside Longleat’s magnificent creatures like monkeys, lions and tigers!

Mells Daffodil Festival

The village of Somerset hosts a traditional village celebration on Easter Monday to usher in spring, and you’re invited! There are several old-fashioned activities like parachuting Teddies and Easter bonnet competitions plus stalls, a variety of food, games, craft and even a classic car exhibition! 2019 will mark the 40th anniversary of the Mells Daffodil Festival, so you’re in store for an extra special celebration!

Drop in at the International Jousting Festival

Held at the Royal Armouries in Leeds, the International Jousting Festival is a sight to behold! Mounted, armoured knights engage in combat games and medieval battles on the tilting yard. There are several demonstrations a day; however they do sell out quickly, so it’s best to book your tickets in advance! The event in 2019 will see four teams from the UK, USA, Canada and Poland battle it out for honour and prizes!

Little Georgie!

We’ve got the best West Yorkshire campervan hire options in the UK! Little Georgie is just one of many beautiful campervans available on Camperbug! He’s a  restored 1977 Westphalia that sleeps and seats four passengers with ease! His fitted with all conveniences like a twin-burner gas hob, fresh water container, a mains powered fridge and more! Speak to his owners about your travel dates.

Observe the twinkling stars!

Combine the stargazing months of March and April with Britain’s darkest locations, and you’ve got excellent views of the night sky! To ensure you get the best views of the night sky, arrive an hour and a half after sunset on a moonless night. There are many locations like Snowdonia National Park and Galloway Forest Park that are officially recognised by the International Dark Skies Association and often frequented by Uranophiles from across the globe!
