Easter in Cambridgeshire
Spring is finally in the air and it’s the perfect time to explore all that Cambridgeshire has to offer. Whether you’re looking for activities for the whole family, going away with a partner or as a group of friends, there are plenty of fantastic places and things to see and do over Easter in Cambridgeshire.
Grafham Water (pictured) is England’s third largest reservoir and a wonderful place to visit in the spring, with 10 miles of waterside cycle trails, a 280 acre nature reserve and a water sports centre where you can book family sailing or paddlesports days. If you don’t fancy exerting yourself on a bike or paddleboard, it’s the perfect place for a walk and a picnic on a sunny spring day.
If you do enjoy exploring by bike, a guided Cambridge Bike Tour is a great way to see the city. Get around all the must-see sights, including the famous College Backs and boathouses, the parks and commons and the historic architecture of Cambridge.
If you’re travelling around the city from March 31st – April 10th, you might be interested to register for a Cambridge Festival event or two. With over 350 to choose from, the topics of the festival’s events and activities cover all aspects of Cambridge’s world-leading research and offers the public the opportunity to engage with the university, its staff and students and and the work being done there.
Cambridge University Botanic Garden is a great place to spend a few hours in some beautiful green space without leaving the city. With regular events throughout the year, this Easter you can enjoy the International Garden Photographer of the Year 2022 exhibition (open every day) or “Plants, Discover, Poetry”, a botanical poetry reading on Sunday 10th April.
There are plenty of family friendly activities to keep the little ones entertained over Easter in Cambridgeshire, including Easter egg hunts at National Trust properties Anglesey Abbey and Wimpole Estate, the Aqua Park at Wyboston Lakes (for the brave) and Bounce, the trampoline park in Peterborough for a great way to burn some energy. How about a trip to Hamerton zoo to see their impressive collection of species, or head to Sacrewell Farm for their Easter Eggstravaganza where the Easter Bunny may even make an appearance!
