Easter fun in Suffolk

Easter events in Suffolk

Easter is one of the highlights of the year for many people, not least because it's a religious holiday. And apart from the cute floppy-eared, cuddly icon, we've all come to associate with Easter, this time of the year carries with it the promise of warmer weather and the opportunity to escape our normal daily routine for a few days.

So, we have set ourselves the task of finding the best all-time Easter Egg Hunts, adult-only activities and ways to avoid the sugar-rush. Chocs away!
