Wareham Rd – Poole BH16 6EU
There are many action-packed activities to attend at Farmer Palmers! Children will have the opportunity to rescue the Easter Bunny from the evil ‘Bandit Bunnies’. This fun activity consists of a tractor ride where children are encouraged to shoot down the ‘Bandit Bunnies’ with water pistols. Once your children have successfully rescued the Easter Bunny, they are free to explore the ‘Easter Egg hunting field’ for the chocolate eggs hidden there. However, children must especially be on the lookout for the golden ticket! If any children find a golden ticket they will win one of the big chocolate egg prizes, which can be collected from the gift shop.
There is some extra family fun for you at Lulworth Castle this Spring Holiday. Enjoy trails, games, hunts & crafts all included in the usual admission price.

Higher Mill Flats, Windsor Terrace on the River Lim – Lyme Regis
If you’re looking for an Easter activity that’s a little different, then you’ll love the Lyme Regis Easter Monday Duck Race! Gather around the River Lim and get ready to release the ducks! All plastic rubber ducks are released into the water and the race is off! Follow the ducks as they make their way down the river to the finish line at Jordan Flats. The winning ducks in the top three places and last place will all win a fantastic prize. To participate in the Easter Monday Duck race, you can buy your ducks online. The organisers of this event are hugely environmentally conscious and collect all the ducks from the water to store them for next year’s race.
