Easter Adventure Quest, Dover Castle, Kent

  • Location: Dover Castle, Castle Hill, Cover, CT16 1HU
  • Date: 23rd March - 14th April 2024
  • Price: Entry - adults £23.60 and children £14.50 (including a -15% discount when you book online). Children under 5 are free. The Easter Adventure Quest is an additional £2 per person

If you're staying at St Margaret's Bay Holiday Park this Easter, you'll find the spectacular ramparts of historic Dover Castle less than 10 minutes away. The castle is home to over 1,000 years of history - with the site's defensive position first being recognised by Iron Age settlers. It wasn't until the 1180s that King Henry II set out to build the impressive castle that stands today.

Well worth a visit at any time of year, young and old alike will find plenty of fascinating treasures and exhibits within its walls. However, if you're visiting this Easter, you'll be able to take part in the Easter Adventure Quest for a small additional charge, where adults and children can hunt for clues throughout the castle and track down Easter eggs - ending with a chocolate sweet treat. It's the perfect way to learn a little more about history while staying entertained.

If you're looking for a more relaxed, grown-up Easter activity and want to get outdoors, we'd recommend a visit to the Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre on the Northumberland Coast. This eco-friendly visitor centre is situated in one of Northumberland's best wildlife-watching spots, with birds, butterflies and red squirrels calling the reserve home. Plus, it's just a stone's throw from Druridge Bay, offering spectacular beach views. Why not take a walk along the beach and around the reserve's trails to blow away the winter cobwebs and get into the spring spirit this Easter?

If you're visiting on the 22nd March, we'd recommend popping in during the morning to take part in an Easter crafting session run by the Northumberland Wildlife Trust. During this, you'll be able to make and take away your very own Easter-themed centrepiece to decorate your table at home, or in your caravan.

Druridge Bay and the Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre are just minutes from Cresswell Towers Holiday Park.
