So April is on the horizon and with it an egg-citing range of Easter events to kick off the new season!
Ryedale is blessed with fabulous towns and villages including Pickering, Malton and Helmsley, all of which will host their event Easter events, including food and other egg-citing events.Also we have the North York Moors National Park on our doorstep! From 13th April to 21st April inclusive, you get the chance to Discover the National Parks at both the Sutton Bank and Danby National Park Centres.
Our National Parks are our national treasures, helping after our spectacular countryside.
And if you love to hunt the Easter Egg, you won’t be disappointed as there will be Easter Egg Hunts at both Sutton Bank and Danby from 19th to 22nd April.
Eden Camp, based just outside Malton, will host its World War Two Living History Weekend on 20th to 22nd April while Scampston Hall is host its Easter Fun Day on 26th April.
Events will also take place at Castle Howard, Flamingo Land, Kirkham Priory, North Yorkshire Moors Railways and Nunnington Hall, which is owned by the National Trust.
These include the Great Castle Howard Easter Egg Hunt from Saturday 13th April to Sunday 28th April, involving the whole family.
Steam trains will be puffing their way along the route from Whitby to Pickering (and back again) as the North Yorkshire Moors Railway’s new season gets underway.
A perennial family favourite is Flamingo Land and this will open its doors to visitors in time for Easter.
English Heritage look after a number of historical sites in Ryedale, Kirkham Priory being one of them.
Another site is Helmsley Castle close to the centre of the picturesque market town. Its distinctive tower provides an iconic landmark for visitors and residents and will be open for the Easter break.
English Heritage also look after Pickering Castle, Rievaulx Abbey and Byland Abbey, all with spectacular surroundings and fascinating stories.
The National Trust has Nunnington Hall as part of it portfolio and is one of the few Trust Properties in the region. A lovely manor house on the banks of the river Rye, from which Ryedale gets its name.
Other Easter favourites include the annual Squires Egg Run on Sunday 14th April, this year visiting the lovely village of Easingwold at around 12.30pm in the Market Place.
And we’re sure there’ll be lots of other activities and events as spring gets truly underway.
We would be more than happy to drive you to and from these lovely places. Just give us a call and we’ll do the rest!
