There’s nothing that kids love more over the Easter holidays than Easter trails or Easter egg hunts – especially if they get a nice chocolate treat at the end. We always make sure we do at least one Easter trail over the Easter weekend – it’s great family fun – and so I’ve put together our favourite Easter trails across Surrey to inspire you to go on an Easter adventure too.
