It’s that time of the year where the flowers have blossomed, the kids are off school and all anyone can think about is chocolate. Easter is finally here, and that means an extra long weekend for most of us. If you’re on the lookout for some Easter inspiration, here are our top tips for things to do in Birmingham this Easter that are sure to put a smile on your face!
Birmingham Botanical Gardens (awarded best attraction and best outdoor event 2017), is a great place to start your easter activities, and a great place for you and the kids to get creative over the holiday. They have a week jam-packed with activities from arts and crafts to outdoor fun; they’ve even got their own chocolate factory!
Speaking of chocolate, how do you celebrate easter without eating an oversized egg that takes you a few days to demolish? We’d be lying if we said we hadn’t had a bit of chocolate already! The easter eggs on our Easter table seemed to disappear pretty quickly.
After being open for just over a year, the Chocolate Quarter (Link to the Chocolate Quarter website) is the perfect place if you’re looking for some luxury chocolate gifts. If you haven’t yet picked up your easter eggs and are after something a bit special this Easter, you still have time; the Chocolate Quarter is open until Easter Saturday.
What’s Easter without a Sunday roast, too? Hotel Du Vin are offering a good deal for a 4 course Sunday Lunch that would surely go down a treat. For the Michelin-star enthusiasts amongst us, Moseley’s very own Carters of Moseley are also offering a 4 course Sunday lunch, from pre starters to dessert.
We’d also recommend the recently-opened Tom’s Kitchen at The Mailbox where they have a kids eat free offer this Easter Sunday. The perfect excuse to try it out! Whilst at Gusto, the little creatives amongst us can get involved by making their own pizza!
Whatever you’re doing, make the most of the Easter break, and enjoy! From all of us here at at Barques, we wish you a very Happy Easter.
