From scenic beaches to all weather attractions, Newquay has plenty to see and do all year round. During the March Bank Holiday, however, stacks of Easter events make a visit even more fun. You’ll find everything from Easter egg hunts to Easter themed happenings taking place across the seaside resort and surrounding areas, making it a magical time for kids and families.
Here are just a small selection of Easter egg-stravaganzas you could be enjoying whilst staying at our Newquay Hotel, The Hotel Bristol, this Easter Bank Holiday.
Easter Weekend at Newquay Zoo
Already one of the most popular attractions in Newquay, Newquay Zoo is hosting a whole range of events over the Easter Holidays. Alongside their traditional Easter egg Hunt on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of April, Newquay zoo will be providing entertainment for kids of all ages with workshops, duck races, face painting and many chances to feed the animals.
