Easter events in Dorset - Easter egg hunt

The Easter holidays are upon us! Whether you’re visiting Dorset for a holiday or live here and want to explore more of your county, there’s never a shortage of places to go and activities for the kids – and big kids! – to get involved in. But what’s on?

Dorset is chock full of family-friendly attractions, and many will be hosting Easter Egg Hunts or other fun activities for kids to enjoy over the Easter period. See the listing below for a selection of events sure to fill up your diaries.

Feeling adventurous? Then a trip to Henley Hillbillies, near Dorchester, for adrenaline-filled activities like quad biking, archery, or clay pigeon shooting could be just the thing for you.

All this and so much more can be found in Dorset. For full listings of what’s on and where to go, see our events pages.

Have a cracking Easter!
