Take a trip to the seaside
Many coastal towns and cities can be reached by rail, such as Brighton, Bournemouth, and Blackpool. Enjoy constructing towering sandcastles or embrace your inner marine biologist and explore the rock pools. Save room for chips and ice cream!
Find hidden containers, called geocaches, using clues and an app (https://www.geocaching.com/play). Ride the newly opened Dartmoor line to Oakhampton, visit the Lake District (Oxholme, Windermere, Kendal) or Brecon Beacons (Abergavenny, Neath).
Explore a museum
Museums can be a fun and educational way to spend the day with children. The Science Museum and the Natural History Museum in London are both accessible by rail, as well as the National Railway Museum in York.
Say hello to a puffin
Several aquariums can be accessed by rail, such as The Deep (Hull), Blue Reef Aquarium (Tynemouth) and the Sea Life Centre (Brighton). Children can see a variety of animals and sea creatures up close.
Visit a theme park
Many theme parks in the UK are accessible by rail and offer fun activities for kids over the easter holiday. Chessington World of Adventures (Chessington South), Drayton Manor (Tamworth) and Thorpe park (Thorpe Park) are all within walking distance of a train station.
Easter is the perfect time to see the bluebells, and there are lots of walks accessible by rail. Skipton Woods (Skipton) in Yorkshire, Lavernock Nature Reserve (Lavernock) in Vale of Glamorgan, and Ashenbank Wood (Sole Street) in Kent all offer beautiful bluebell displays in spring.
