Children enjoy the popular Easter egg trail

We've organised events and activities every day of the Easter holidays so we hope you'll never have to hear the words 'I'm bored' from your little cherubs. Make the most of your time off by packing your two week break full of Easter egg trails, nature and wildlife events, arts and crafts and even the chance to become a lambing apprentice. 

Hidden gems in the North East

George Stephenson's Birthplace, Wylam

Make this the year you make the most of what the North East has to offer. As well as some fascinating big houses like Cragside, and iconic stretches of countryside like Hadrian's Wall, we look after some lesser known hidden gems from the birthplaces of the great railway engineer George Stephenson to hidden woodlands in County Durham.

Nature events

Join us for nature and wildlife events and enjoy the great outdoors this spring. Here's what's coming up:


Nature spotters

From bugs, butterflies and bees, to trees and pond life. Use our handy nature spotters guides to track what you spot while out and about in the countryside.


Hadrian's Wall

We look after six of the most scenic miles of Hadrian's Wall - one of the UK's most famous World Heritage Sites. But do you know what a World Heritage Site is and how Hadrian's Wall became one? Hear from the expert on 24 March.

Spring nature

We all love this time of year - birds are singing, flowers are emerging and lambs are being born. We've made a list of the best places in the North East to go nature spotting in spring, so all you need to do is pop your boots on and get out there.
