Bocketts Farm is a firm favourite of mine when it comes to a fun day-out. There’s more than enough going on to keep an entire family occupied for a whole day. This Easter, they’re expecting 300 baby lambs to be born, as well as cuddly bunnies, cute chicks and ducklings, which you can meet in their Animal Handling sessions throughout the day. You’ll also be able to visit other farm animals, including the calves, goats, llamas, peacocks, donkeys – to name but a few!
There’s always a full programme of activities to keep children of all ages entertained. Watch the daily pig racing, or enjoy a pony or tractor ride. There’s also an enormous amount of fun to be had in their huge indoor and outdoor play areas. Personally, I’m a big fan of their giant astro slide! If it’s a sunny day, you’ll spend hours on their huge outdoor trampolines and large jumping pillows.

If you’re looking for something fun and free to do with the kids this Easter holidays, check out My Baba’s Buckingham Palace adventure. There’s a downloadable trail starting at Buckingham Palace Road by the Royal Mews, finishing at the other end of The Mall, by Admiralty Arch. There’s also a very cool eye-spy game for the kids to complete on the way round. With the leaves appearing on the trees and spring flowers aplenty, this is the perfect time of year for a wander around St James’s Park.
