The year’s well on its way, and some people are starting to think about Easter trails for 2024. Nowadays so many activities are advance ticket only, so it’s worth planning in case your favourite Easter activities and venues sell out. Here’s some of the Easter trails in Oxfordshire and nearby for Easter 2024, include other Easter themed activities.
We’ve done many of the nearby National Trust Easter trails over the years, but they do get very busy at some of the bigger locations. Look out for those with several activities spread around the venue, and preferably a playground.
It’s nice to see there are plenty of other places offering activities over the Easter holidays. Perfect for younger children.
I’ll add to this post as I find out more information. Do let me know if you hear about any others happening.
Easter activities in Oxfordshire
