Easter is celebrated because it is one of the most important Christian festivals of the year. This is because The Bible states that Christ died on the cross on good Friday and was resurrected on the Easter Sunday, we celebrate his sacrifice and then his new lease of life. Easter for non-religious people is a time to enjoy with the whole family as the kids are off and there are often fun days out. The Easter holidays are a great time to get out and explore the UK. We want to show you some of the brilliant attractions and places to visit this Easter which are designed for the whole family.
