Things to do around Oxford this Easter

Things to do around Oxford this Easter

With Easter just around the corner, the kids will have a couple of weeks off school, so we’ve put together this post of great things to do in Oxfordshire to help make sure you make the most of the holiday.

Boswells Easter Rabbit Hunt

Boswells Easter Hunt

This Easter come in store and take part in our Easter Rabbit Hunt! Pick up an entry form from one of the tills and then search the store high and low to find the mischievous rabbits that are hiding. Once you’ve found them all head back to the till to collect your prize.

Bitten Street

The brilliant Bitten Street from Bitten Oxford returns to the Oxford Castle Quarter on the 4th of April. The castle is taken over by street food traders from across the country serving their delicious food to the people of Oxford. From Happy Cakes to Mac and Cheese Pizzas, there will be something there for the whole family to enjoy!

Their March event was immensely popular and having already announced a few of the traders who will be at the April event, we’re sure this will be even better. Just remember to follow their advice and arrive hungry! If you are thinking lunchtime we recommend arriving early as it is popular and queues can be long after noon.

Ice Rink

The Oxford ice rink has been a favourite for many years, and if you’re looking to get active this Easter and burn off all those chocolate eggs, a few laps of the ice rink is one of the most enjoyable ways. Open 7 days a week. 

Earth Trust Easter Outdoor Fun

Wittenham Clumps

Get outside this half term and take part in the great activities that the Earth Trust have got planned at Wittenham Clumps. From egg rolling to an Easter Bunny hunt, there are lots of events to keep the family entertained!

Oxford Playhouse

Michael Morpurgo’s I Don’t Believe in Unicorns has been adapted for stage and will be coming to the Oxford Playhouse over the Easter holidays. The story follows Tomas’s discovery of the magic of books and his mission to protect everything that matters to him. As well as the performances there is also a great workshop that kids can take part in.

Orienteering at Shotover Park

Get active this Easter and take part in a great orienteering event at Shotover Park in Oxford. With different courses for all abilities and age groups it promises hours of fun and adventure. There is coaching available for beginners, so you don’t get too lost.
This event is part of a series of four arranged across Oxford.

Caldecotte Miniature Railway

Easter Sunday is the opening day of the year for the Caldecotte Miniature Railway. A great day out for kids and adults, you can see the country side from one of their locomotives for just £1 for two trips around! Open every Sunday and bank holiday from April – October.

Hinksey Pool

Just outside the city centre, Hinksey Pool has been an Oxford favourtie favourite since 1934. Opening on April 3rd for the start of the summer season, this large outdoor pool offers a place for families to come and enjoy a day of fun, or an area where more serious swimmers can swim laps.
There is also a great splash park for younger children.
