Things to do, places to see…

Isn’t Easter great? The sun is starting to poke its head through the clouds, lambs are popping up in fields around the north east of England and the children are off school. If the last of those things fills you with dread and memories of school holidays past, then fear not.

At Week2Week Serviced Apartments we know that sometimes you hear nothing other than the cries of I’m bored toward the end of the two-week break, which is why we have scoured the web to save you time – and earache – and keep the kids entertained whether you are visiting the region for business, or reside here in the beautiful north east.


 

Quayside Seaside – Newcastle Quayside

The north east has some of the best beaches in the UK, with Tynemouth just a short hop from the city centre and blue flags galore.  It’s also home to Newcastle and Durham, two of the best cities to visit in the country. So what better way to experience them both than visit the Quayside seaside in Newcastle?

Bringing the beach to the city, the event is always a big hit, with over 500,000 visitors in 2016 enjoying the real sand beach constructed annually, complete with ice cream and deckchairs.


 

Get traditional – Egg hunts

Easter to many means one thing – chocolate eggs. And who doesn’t enjoy an Easter egg after having searched for it somewhere other than on the shelves of the local supermarket?

Whether you are looking to entertain the kids and sit back and relax while they go hunting in many of the area’s Nation Trust Locations, or even if you want to get involved yourself, the likes of Gibside which is a stone’s throw from Newcastle city centre is sure to have something on for you and yours – including their annual egg hunt on Friday April 14.


 

Eat Out

With the increase in temperature, the children are going to be doing a lot more running around outdoors over Easter, which means they are going to need a little more fuel for their energy. Luckily then, a number of Newcastle restaurants are offering kids eat free deals; BINGO! Jamie’s Italian, Prezzo and Fratello’s are among those offering free eats for the kids with the purchase of an adult meal.

Easter is all about family time, so what better excuse to round up the troops and enjoy some often overlooked togetherness than over a hearty meal?
