Easter Fun on Swanage Pier

Hop along to Swanage Pier this Easter and enjoy all that Spring has to offer.

Eggcellent Easter Trail 

Friday 29th March - Sunday 14th April 2024 

The Easter bunny has hidden some eggs on the Pier.  You will need to find the items hidden in the eggs and solve the Easter saying to earn your reward. 

So here is what you need to do...

Pick up your activity sheet from the Pier gatehouse and as you walk along the Pier, your first task is to collect all the words from the Easter Eggs and rearrange them into an Easter saying!

Your second task is to discover the seaside themed pictures within each egg and write them on your sheet.

Once all the eggs have been found, mini egg explorers can hand in their sheets at the Pier shop to be rewarded with a treat and be entered into our draw to win our eggcellent Easter hamper.

£1.50 per trail

Normal Adult Pier Entry Applies
