Easter to many people means the chance to get together with friends and family, eating lots of chocolate and perhaps enjoying the scenery as spring begins to sprout. If you're looking for a change to the usual routine, why not make this Easter extra special and book a break away where you can enjoy this special time of year somewhere new and exciting.
Easter is the first bank holiday after New Year and a great time to get away with the longer evenings, the days getting warmer (fingers crossed!) and trees coming alive with beautiful blosom.
With the dates for the bank holidays changing each year, here are the latest ones to put in your diary:
Good Friday - 15th April 2022
Easter Sunday - 17th April 2022
For many Easter can be the first trip of the year to the seaside. Head to popular resorts of Blackpool and Scarborough for some fun or soak up the fresh sea air on the South Coast in Newquay, Bournemouth or the Isle of Wight.
Alternatively you can enjoy the great outdoors in the Lake District or the unspoilt beauty in the Yorkshire Dales. Wales is stunning this time of year with the baby lambs and daffodils in full bloom and we must not forget about Bonnie Scotland with the wonderful lochs and glens. Perhaps grab your walking shoes so you burn those extra calories from all those Easter Eggs!
If you fancy heading to Europe this Easter time, we offer tours to the Rhine in Germany and France with it's chateaux and gardens and finally the Dutch Bulbfields where you see the real beauty of Spring.

Make a change to your usual routine for Easter and this year, get your loved ones together for a short break away and eat your chocolate eggs somewhere new? Deciding on where to go can for some be a little daunting so here are just a few of the places you can visit during this time:
The German Valleys
Spend a few relaxing days with the people closest to you as you celebrate Easter in the Rhine and Moselle area of Germany. This region is so beautiful that it's just crying out to be explored especially at Easter where you can marvel at the imposing Burg Eltz, meander the medieval streets of Cochem and visit the many flower covered wine taverns of Rudesheim.
For an air of peace and tranquillity this Easter time, take a mini break to The Cotswolds where you can enjoy a delicious Afternoon Tea in quaint English villages such as Bourton-on-the-Water or Stow-on-the-Wold. Absorb the timeless charm of this beautiful region of the UK where stunning landscapes, rolling hills and church spires cry out to be explored this Easter.
No Easter would be complete without visiting Bruges, known for its connections with chocolate and lace. When you arrive in Bruges, make a bee-line for the Old Quarter and this is where you will find all the master chocolatiers. Enhance your break with a visit to the Chocolate Museum where you will find the answers to many questions that plague a chocoholics mind!
The Lake District
Another beautiful region of the UK that's perfect for your Easter break with stunning scenery for all to enjoy. Pack your walking boots and go rambling across the many Fells that the Lake District has to offer but take care as the weather can change in an instant. For those not wishing for an active break, you can walk aimlessly around Windermere, take a cruise across the lake or broaden your knowledge of Beatrix Potter.
The Easter Bank Holiday provides the perfect excuse to spend a long weekend in the vibrant city of Amsterdam. There so much to entertain the whole family from enjoying a relaxing cruise along the famous canals, sample local delicacies, admire the windmills, try on some clogs or combine your trip with a visit to the colourful Dutch Bulbfields at Keukenhof.
