With only a few weeks left until Easter and aside from ALL the chocolate the kids will be consuming – have you thought about how to entertain them over the Easter break?
I thought it would be useful to put together a list of Easter Activities in and around the Kingston area.
It’s no secret that my boys are HUGE train fans. We have been regulars at this miniature railway ever since E was old enough. It’s a great afternoon of fun for the whole family. There are a variety of miniatures to ride on, a small shop selling sandwiches, cakes and drinks but you can also bring your own picnic to enjoy too.
The miniature railway opens on Easter Sunday 27 March and Monday 28 March from 2-5.30pm and then the first Sunday of every month until October.
Tickets start from £2 for a single ride or £24.50 for a family of four.
Wyvale Garden Centre
Selected Wyvale Garden Centres (the closest ones to Kingston are Syon Park, Lower Morden or Weybridge) are holding a special Easter event where you have breakfast or tea with the Easter Bunny!
The children will be able to:
- Meet the Easter Bunny and choose a cuddly toy
- Decorate an Easter cookie
- Munch on mini chocolate eggs
- Go on an Easter Bunny egg hunt
We have booked to take the boys on Good Friday as a special treat but have not told them about it yet! I can’t wait to see how excited they will be about it.

Another one of our favourite places which again, we went to last Easter. E saw a baby lamb being born on the day we went, and it was absolutely amazing. There are lots to do at Bocketts Farm.
