Easter Holiday Activities Essex

Home to a number of Easter holiday activities, Essex is a great place to explore with the family. But have you ever been to Barleylands farm park and craft village?

Located near Billericay, this is one of South East England’s most popular educational farming and craft centre attractions. Both young and old are bound to learn a great deal and have lots of fun while doing so.

So, if you’re planning your Easter holidays but don’t know what to do, consider visiting Barleylands. You can even book online to save 10% on day tickets.

Our Easter Holiday Activities Essex

Farm Park
We put equal emphasis on education and entertainment at Barleylands Farm Park. We know how important it is for kids to have fun, but at the same time our activities and attractions aim to be informative. Here’s what you can do:

  • Animal activities – From the ‘Lamb National’ and ‘Hilly Billy Goat’ races to bottle feeding and grooming
  • Outdoor adventures – Our bouncy Jumping Pillow, cool Go Karts, bumpy tractor rides, two playgrounds, and mini toddler houses
  • Indoor play – High slides, cargo nets, poles, and chicanes
  • Discovery Barn – A historical museum of rural life from years gone by
  • Animal Barn – Get up close and personal with our farmyard friends whatever the weather
  • Snakes Alive Reptile House – Over 55 enclosures bursting with an array of snakes, lizards, spiders, and more
  • Imperial Bird of Prey Academy – An engaging and memorable insight into birds of prey and owls

The Village

Barleylands Craft Village plays host to over 30 studios and workshops, which have a number of bespoke and personalised items on offer. You’ll also witness the crafters in action and can learn a few new skills too.

For some much-needed sustenance, stop by Tiptree tearooms for a range of delicious meals and tasty treats. You can even indulge in a bit of fine dining at the Magic Mushroom, just make sure you have a reservation.

What’s more, on the last Saturday of the month, we have Barleylands Farmers Market. Support local traders and buy the freshest produce at affordable prices.
