Plan your Easter weekend holiday in Wales 2014


Easter is just around the corner and lots of our campsites, hotels and B&Bs are becoming very busy. To make sure you don’t miss out on a break to Wales this Easter weekend (2014), we’re going to show you three fantastic things you can do in Wales and six places you stay.

So, whether you’re a family looking for a holiday for you and the kids, or a relaxed couple looking for a short break, step this way and start to plan ahead for Easter:

National Waterfront Museum’s Easter Egg Hunt, Swansea, South Wales

From the 14th to the 27th of April 2014 the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea, Wales will be hosting a fun Easter egg hunt. The hunts run from 11am until 4pm and you and your family will be asked to find 12 golden eggs, which will have been carefully hidden in and amongst the museum’s objects in the galleries. You’ll also have to put your minds to work and try to solve the Jack and the Beanstalk riddle. The Easter egg hunt is free.

After you’ve been to the museum, you can spend the rest of the day exploring the stunning beaches and countryside that surround Swansea.

Here’s some more information about the National Waterfront Museum’s Easter Egg Hunt.
