Explore the great outdoors
With the days getting lighter and the weather, slowly but surely, getting better, now is the perfect chance to venture out, soak up the fresh air and discover the great outdoors during your days out in Derby. As a city, Derby is well known for its open green spaces and rivers which can be enjoyed by families, couples and friends, including the furry four legged kind.
Speaking of the outdoors, why not take part in the National Trust’s Calke Abbey Easter egg hunt and get into the Easter spirit? This will give you the chance to work together as a team as you make your way along the adventurous trail and find activities to complete, with chocolate, vegan or free from chocolate eggs up for grabs. Sounds both fun and delicious!
Celebrate St George’s Day
Do something a little different this St George’s Day and attend Derby’s annual celebrations, highlighting English heritage and culture. From dragons to dancing, this family-friendly event in the city centre will make for a memorable day out in Derby with live entertainment, medieval knights, music and much more for everyone to enjoy.
Add adventure to the Easter holidays
Treat the kids during the Easter holidays to an adventure-packed day out in Derby at the National Forest Adventure Park. With so much to do, your little ones will be spoilt for choice at what to do first, from the Easter themed woodland trail where they can meet the Easter bunny and decorate shortbread, to magic shows for all the family, animal feeding and an indoor soft play area - it really is the place to be this Easter.
After all the fun and excitement from the day, you and your family will most likely have worked up an appetite. Head over to your nearest Zan Fish shop and end your day on a delicious note, as you tuck into our freshly prepared food. From family meal deals to kids meals and more, the hardest part will be choosing what to order.
