Five Great Ideas for Easter Breaks in Staffordshire


The Easter holidays are upon us so why not celebrate with a short break in Staffordshire?

Whether you're looking for days out for adults or things to do with children at Easter, Staffordshire has something for you!

Here are five ideas for unusual Easter breaks, and you can browse other suggestions in our Easter events section.

Get on your bike for some thrills and spills on our popular trails, like the Follow the Dog Trail at Cannock Chase, pictured here

Egg-citement Staffordshire-Style

For an egg-zhilarating break, jump on your mountain bike and take on the Follow the Dog or The Monkey Trail at Cannock Chase.

Make like Tarzan and swing from tree to tree at Go Ape, or spend the day kayaking, paddle-boarding or raft-building with Peak Pursuits.

If you prefer a slightly slower pace, sample the delights of the Staffordshire countryside from a saddle at the Cannock Chase Trekking Centre.

Enjoy The Great Outdoors

For some more sedate local days out, you could take a stroll through the estate at Rode Hall, visit the award-winning gardens at the Trentham Estate, or hunt for tasty treats on one of our Easter egg trails.

Or you could head to the stunning Staffordshire Peak District, seen in the clip below.

Sample Local Cuisine and Culture

Staffordshire is great for indoor days out too!

Tantalise your tastebuds with some local cuisine at the Four Seasons Restaurant (the only restaurant in the county with three AA rosettes), or award-winning eateries like The Swan in Stafford or Denstone Hall Cafe and Farm Shop.

Or if contemporary culture is more your thing, immerse yourself in the amazing works from 18 local artists at the Staffordshire Enjoy Art exhibition at the Shugborough Estate.

Enjoy chocolate fun with a difference at several local attractions, like Hoar Cross Hall, pictured here

A Feast of Fun for Chocaholics!

Sample a pint of Chocolate and Vanilla Stout from Stoke-on-Trent’s Titanic Brewery, in one of their seven traditional Staffordshire pubs, from The Roebuck in Leek to The Sun in Stafford.

Get your chocolate fix without the calories by unwinding with a one or two-night Cocoa Indulgence package at Hoar Cross Hall.

Or for something truly adventurous, you could pay a visit to Burton-upon-Trent, where Marmite was first made, and try a Marmite Easter egg…

There's something for everyone at Weston Park this Easter, like the Transport Show, pictured here

Take a Trip Back in Time

Downton Abbey fans are in for a treat this Easter!

The show may be coming to a close at Christmas, but you can always console yourself with a behind-the-scenes tour at the 17th Century Weston Park.

Visit the Servants Hall, Middle Drawing Room, Boudoir and 28 bedrooms and imagine Carson or Lady Mary as your guide!

Or why not browse hundreds of classic automobiles and vehicles in Weston Park's Transport Show?

Rain or shine, there are plenty of fun days out for kids in Staffordshire!
