Blue Reef Aquarium, Newquay

18th to 21st April 2014

The Blue Reef Aquarium have gone hopping mad this Easter – they’re giving you the chance to win a family ticket to the aquarium!

They have all kinds of eggs at Blue Reef - including the newly laid Leopard Spotted Gobies Eggs. However, this Easter there’s even more than usual because the Easter Bunny has been doing his rounds! He’s been down to the depths and hidden his eggs in the the loggerhead turtle tank, he's dived with the sharks and the swum with shoals of colourful fish in his quest to challenge you! Count how many eggs are in each display and name their tank mates to be entered into a prize draw to win a family ticket.

18th to 21st April 2014

Trerice in Newquay was once a grand Elizabethan manor house; today its charm is being carefully restored by the National Trust. It’s a fun place to explore with tours of the grand house as well as acres of pretty gardens and perfect bowling greens.

This Easter the bunnies have gone bonkers with fun Easter trails, Easter bonnet making and an egg-ilerating egg and spoon race on Easter Monday.
