What to do during the Easter Bank Holiday?
On 30th March (Good Friday) – 2nd April (Bank Holiday Monday) we have the Easter Bank Holiday when the school is closed. We want to make sure you make the most of these days off, so here are some suggestions to make your bank holiday a fun filled one!
1. Jurassic Coast – if the weather is nice, we recommend going to the Jurassic coast that stretches nearly 96 miles of coastline and contains 185 million years of the Earth’s history. You can see from the picture how gorgeous a place it is on a clear sunny day – perfect for a long relaxing walk with friends!
HINT: Catch the number 50 bus from Bournemouth square for 360 degree views of the coast, and why not stop at a local pub called The Banks Arms or Corfe Castle (which has many pubs) for a traditional British Sunday roast.
2. London – with the arrival of the Easter bank holiday, London will be buzzing! Visit the capital and experience everything it has to offer, including shows, street music, great food, historical landmarks and much more. Take a look at some Easter holiday activities available here
3. Paris (if you’ve got the visa) – with the extra days, you can afford to go a little further afield, you can take this opportunity whilst you’re in Europe to visit France, just a short train or flight from us. Another beautiful place to check off your bucket list! Voila!
HINT: Visit the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, The Louvre, Notre-Dame de Paris and all the beautiful sights. To book, you can come to the reception! Or… book online at National Express for coaches, or GoEuro.co.uk for flights!
4. Or… stay in the local area! Follow the clues to find the Easter chicks hidden around Poole Museum on its Easter trail, from March 25 to April 10 during museum opening hours. Entry to the museum is free. Also, voted the best beach in the UK, and the best seaside town in the UK, Bournemouth is on your doorstep and is a popular destination for everyone – during the bank holiday go shopping, grab some food by the beach, and appreciate the nightlife!
For example: DJ at The Cellar Bar on Sunday 1st April (Over 18’s only) – listen to uplifting reggae music through the night from 9pm to midnight.
