Easter in Northumberland

Scattered with an abundance of beautiful churches, Northumberland is the perfect place to celebrate Easter more traditionally. If you’d just like to relax and enjoy the holiday, then we have plenty of activities for you and your family to enjoy!

Springtime celebration

Easter is always an egg-citing time of the year in Northumberland.

After the long winter months, spring is on the way and everything is starting to feel a little bit brighter. The weather is getting better, the days are longer, and flowers are bursting into bloom.


See the spectacular display of cherry blossom trees in The Cherry Orchard at The Alnwick Garden – the largest collection outside of Japan! Head to Howick Hall Garden & Arboretum, full of cheerful daffodils carpeting the grounds from March till well into May. Marvel as the microclimate of The Quarry Garden at Belsay Hall, Castle & Gardens works its magic on several species of rhododendrons.


If you’re holidaying here during this spiritual time, Northumberland is scattered with an abundance of beautiful churches. From St Michael & All Angels at Ford & Etal to the infamous St Oswald’s at Heavenfield, you’ll be sure to find a church nearby to celebrate Lent and Easter.


Even if you don’t follow the Christian traditions, Easter is all about birth, new beginnings, a fresh start – making it a lovely time to get outside for a bit of nature-spotting! Chase away the last of the winter chills with countryside walksseaside frolics and family-friendly fun at one of Northumberland’s many great attractions.
