Easter, Whitsuntide & Spring Bank fun in the North York Moors!

Just a few short weeks away and visitors will see the North York Moors come to life. As temperatures begin to rise the wintry countryside reawakens to welcome Easter visitors and the fun packed list of spring events begins.

From the start of April through to the end of May there are many exciting Easter and Whitsuntide activities for all the family to take part in - perfect for the school holidays. With the warmer weather and spring sunshine, a short break or family holiday whilst schools out is an ideal opportunity to spend some quality time in the great outdoors.

The rolling hills are peppered with farms, with newly born spring lambs frolicking amongst the freshly opened flora .Many of the villages and towns organise a whole host of Easter activities, with egg hunting, egg painting and egg rolling amongst the favourites. Why not create your own Easter bonnet and take part in one of the locally held competitions, an ideal pastime for the children whatever the weather?

Maybe take a trip to the coast and visit one of the bustling seaside towns of Whitby or Scarborough or enjoy some nostalgic family fun aboard the North York Moors Steam Railway.

So get cracking and start planning your ideal holiday or short break in the North York Moors & Coast.
