This year (2016), Good Friday is on March 25th and Easter Monday is on March 28th. There is a lot going on over that weekend as well as the school holiday. Here at the North Ocean Hotel, we don’t charge you more for staying during Easter holidays, half term or any school break so anytime is a good time to stay with us!

Avoid the usual problem of entertaining the children for a week by bringing them to Blackpool. With arcades, three piers, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Blackpool Tower, Winter Gardens, The Sands Venue, Blackpool Zoo and many more attractions, there is enough here to keep even the most hyperactive kids entertained. As a family-friendly resort, there are usually special events being held all over Easter too!

If you elect to stay with us over the Easter holidays, what is there to do while you’re here? As well as the programme of events within the hotel itself, the rest of the town has a range of special events just for Easter. Here are just a few.

Blackpool Zoo

Blackpool Zoo has a range of ‘egg-citing activitiesrunning over Easter. They also have a range of new arrivals in the form of baby animals, so cute is definitely the order of the day. The zoo is also increasing its animal experiences, such as feeding giraffes and sea lions, flying a barn owl, or playing with the Children’s Farm animals.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt at Sizergh Castle

The Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt at Sizergh Castle runs from the 25th until 28th March and should be an excellent day out for all the family. Not only is the castle itself a great place to explore, but the grounds are too. Add the excitement of a Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt and you have every reason to visit.

Chorley Cycling Grand Prix

Chorley isn’t far from Blackpool, so watching the Chorley Cycling Grand Prix on the 26th of March would make a great day out. Cyclists tackle a challenging 100 mile course around Lancashire starting and finishing in Chorley. There will also be special events, displays and more on the day.

Michael Jordans High Jinx Magic & Illusion

Michael Jordans High Jinx Magic & Illusion is doing two Easter shows on the 26th and 27th of March. These shows always go down well with their mixture of comedy, magic, acrobatics and stunts. It’s a great show that runs from 6pm until 10pm.

Easter Tea Party and Egg Hunt

The Easter Tea Party and Egg Hunt at The Pavilion in Memorial Park Fleetwood is a nice and relaxing way to spend family time. The tea party is accessible to all the family, while the Easter egg hunt is designed specifically for children. It is running on 27th March from 11am until 1pm.
