It almost Easter again and there are generally lots of fun Easter activities in Liverpool and Merseyside for your children to enjoy. I have done a little round up of what is going on in the city so you can plan some fun days out this Easter.
Easter Activities in Liverpool
Easter Egg Hun at Speke Hall
There is an Easter egg hunt in one of our favourite National Trust Speke Hall in Liverpool. Running from 11 -18 April 2022. Pick up your activity pack to find the trail map filled with fun activities you’re going to follow. Once you have finished the trail (there is no time limit!) collect your Easter Egg at the end. The trail packs cost £3 and of course you have to pay the normal admission. There is no need to book just turn up.
There is lots to do at Speke Hall. They have a woodland park, a park, a maze and lots of space to run around. Take a picnic and spend the whole day there.
Easter Wonderland at Otterspool.
One of our favourite places to visit in Liverpool is Otterspool Adventure. They always have lots of fun activities to do and my children love it. This year they have a Easter Wonderland which includes a ‘Adventures of Alice’ show, a Spring farm including bunnies chicks and ducks and of course access to all the other wonderful things in Otterspool Adventure. This includes a park, a maze, go cards, bouncy pillows and crazy golf. You can also pay an additional £3 per child to visit the Easter Bunny and receive an Easter egg.
It costs £17 per child (not including a visit to the Easter Bunny) and £8.50 per adult . Personally I think this is a little pricey. For us to go as a family of 5 it would cost £68 + £9 to visit the Easter Bunny. I think maybe it would be less annoying if Otterspool Adventure had included the Easter Bunny and Easter Egg in the ticket price or maybe offered a family ticket to make it a little more accessible for more people to visit.
That said you can stay all day. We went to the Christmas activity in Otterspool Adventure and it was wonderful and well worth the money. My children had a great time. However it should be noted that you can’t take your own food into Otterspool Adventure so this is another expense that you would need to consider.
