Keep busy over the Easter period

Our suggestions to keep busy and active during the Easter break

University of Bath Easter break - Saturday 27 March to Sunday 11 April inclusive

Easter break is coming up, and while it still won’t be a ‘normal’ Easter for most of us there are still plenty of things you can do with your time off.  With lockdown restrictions gradually lifting, as of 8 March you are allowed to spend time in outdoor public spaces for recreation on your own, with your household or support bubble. This means you can also enjoy the (hopefully) warmer weather and have a socially distanced picnic. So why not make the most of the brighter weather and some extra time to yourself. We’ve compiled a few ideas for some perfect moments of wellbeing and discovery:


Get your serotonin-boosting sun rays and fresh air on some of Bath’s many amazing walks. There are loads to discover such as the Bath Skyline walk, the Bath History walk, the Lansdown walk, and Kelston Roundhill. The walks section of Bath Magazine has plenty of ideas for additional walks in and around Bath.
If you’re based in your hometown this Easter, look up local walks at Find free walks near me - Walking Britain


The Bath Two Tunnels circuit is an easy, circular route. On it you’ll see the UK’s longest cycling and walking tunnel, the spectacular Tucking Mill Viaduct, as well as lush forest and beautiful valley views.

Or you could hire an electric scooter and have fun travelling around the city! Hop-on hop-off e-scooters are available central Bath. E-scooters are unlocked for £1 and cost 20p per minute to ride.

You may not be able to sit in a café or restaurant at the moment, but you can still get takeaway coffee & cakes, or even a meal. Here are some of our favourite foodie tips:

  • Planning a picnic?

Why not find some recipe inspiration and have a go at making your own picnic hamper instead of reaching for the standard supermarket meal deal.

And much more!
