Easter is fast approaching and with the school holidays in full swing, many people will be planning activities to do throughout and over the Easter weekend, as well as purchasing delicious treats or gifts for friends and family. 

At Chantry Place, you will discover Easter décor, gifts and treats, including one of the thickest Easter eggs you will ever encounter at Hotel Chocolat! There is also a plethora of restaurants you can enjoy with your family, not to mention the Easter Eggstravaganza trail. 

The trail is running until April 19 and is a free, fun egg hunt that is suitable for the entire family. All you have to do is hunt all 12 eggs, note down the letter on them, solve the clues that will lead you to the next egg and then unscramble the letters to make an Easter-themed word! 

The 12th egg is the golden egg and will have instructions on how to enter a competition to win a £100 voucher for Byron, a chocolate egg from Hotel Chocolat and a cute Jellycat bunny rabbit.
