Egg - plore Itchen Valley Country Park
Enjoy the great outdoors this Easter with local adventures on your door step. We love Itchen Valley Country Park which is located near Eastleigh, which has hundreds of acres of woodlands and meadows to explore. Ramble round one of the many walks or grab your bikes for adventures and spot the Spring blooms peeping through; happy yellow Daffodils, dainty Sweet Violets and blue blankets of Bluebells are beautiful to spy this time of year.
The long Easter bank holiday weekend is the ideal time to switch off and relax, and what better way than to shell out for a delicious brunch from your local Artisan coffee shop? Docks Coffee based in Southampton have a mouth watering range of goodies for local delivery in Southampton – we love the sound of the Spring Pancake Brunch for sweet tooth fans or the Smoked Salmon Brunch Platter if you prefer a more savoury start to the day.
Easter in full bloom
Fall in love with our exclusive Spring Flowers Collection which showcases some of our favourite seasonal flowers. Easter is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to some of the finest blooms and add a dash of flower happiness to your home! We totally adore our Sunshine Giftbox Bouquet created by our expert florists, with sunshine yellow roses and gerberas mixed with peach alstroemeria and white carnations. As your local Southampton florist we can also safely deliver Spring Flowers if you wish to send a lovely Easter gift to friends and family in Hampshire.
Easter egg hunting
A bit of fun for the children (and big kids too!), set up an Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday. Leave cryptic clues hidden around the house and garden, which then lead to a treasure trove of Easter Eggs at the finish. If you really want to push the boat out this year, book the family on a paddling adventure down the Beaulieu River with the New Forest Activities popular Canoe Easter Egg Hunt - recommended to book early!
Get baking this Easter, making your favourite Easter treats in your kitchen. The BBC website has some delicious Easter inspired recipes to suit all levels of cooking; kids will love mixing the Easter Egg Blondie, you can try your hand at making Vegan Hot Cross Buns or for Star Bakers, Mary Berry’s Easter Lemon Pavlova looks simply sensational!
