5 things to do during the Easter holidays in Chester

It’s Easter y’all! And in case you’re Chester-bound and struggling how to spend your long weekend, I gotcha hun. Check these shenanigans out:



Chester Food, Drink & Lifestyle Festival

Grab yourself some cool culinary experiences this weekend at the Chester Food, Drink & Lifestyle Festival at the Chester Racecourse. The festival promises “some eye-catching views, nostril-flaring aromas and lip-smacking tastes of some premium level food and drink”, so it’s pretty certain that among the 150 vendors that are filling up the venue, you’ll find something you’ll absolutely love. Tickets are £8 for a standard one, plus whatever money you spend on all the tipple and noms, obvs.



Easter Eggstravaganza at the Ice Cream Farm

The Ice Cream Farm is hitting Easter with a bang with the return of their crème egg ice cream. They’re also unveiling a brand new flavour and there’s an eggstra (geddit?) special Golden Ticket Hunt, all during the Easter weekend. It’s free to get in and to take part in the hunt – and you could even win some prizes!



Self-guided walks for the Curious

Who says you can’t go exploring your home city? No one, that’s who! So how does exploring Chester city centre with two self-guided heritage walks with a treasure hunt theme sound? I know right. You can discover Chester’s “hidden treasures” whilst having a fun day out with family and friends, maybe even stopping in a few watering holes on the way. Chester has over 2000 years of historyso there’s bound to be plenty to explore. You can buy the booklets for £5.99 from the site.



Go for some dinner

If you’re quick about it, you might still be able to avoid having to cook eater dinner for your clan by booking yourself a table in town. Rather a lot of places are doing special deals as well, so check a few sites to get the best one and enjoy a night of no fuss, no mess and what’s best: no dishes to do afterwards!



Have a few drinks and then have some more

What are four-day weekends about if not some shenanigans in your favourite local? You’ll see I have given you 14 options in the links to try in case you fancy something new (you’re welcome) or what to reacquaint yourself with an old favourite (you’re double welcome). I mean, you’ll probably run into me at one (or five) of them, so let’s all hope that doesn’t put you off.
