JOIN US FOR A WEEKEND OF FAMILY FUN
Easter is one of our favourite times of the year where we spend some quality time with our families, enjoy the first signs of spring and of course overindulge in chocolate, guilt-free! Here at Gretna Green we have a range of fun activities planned to keep the whole family entertained.
1) Find the Easter Bunny
Your little ones will love this free Easter bunny hunt! Find 7 Easter bunnies hidden around our shopping complex to win a lovely goodie bag.
2) Family Fun in the Sun
We have our fingers crossed that the sun will make an appearance this Easter weekend. If you’re heading to Gretna Green, take in some fresh spring air at our Courtship Maze, Sculpture Garden and Outdoor Play Park – free family fun!
3) Stock up on Easter Treats
Easter wouldn’t be the same without… CHOCOLATE! Whether you’re a milk, white or dark chocolate fan – we have an impressive selection to choose from at our shopping complex. Looking for a chocolate-free alternative? We also have a range of handpicked gifts from seasonal tea sets to Peter Rabbit merchandise.
4) Explore Gretna Green and the Solway Coast
Spend some quality time in Gretna Green and the Solway Coast. This short break includes quality accommodation at Greens or Gretna Hall with full Scottish breakfast each morning and an evening meal each night. On the Tuesday explore the Solway Coast across the border and see Gretna Green from the other side of the water. Take advantage of your 10% discount voucher to use within our Famous Blacksmiths Visitor Attraction and shopping complex on the Wednesday. Plus, discover the secrets of Gretna Green at our museum. You might even see a wedding or two! For availability and bookings please call 01461 337621 and quote code ‘SOLWAY.’
5) Meet the Easter Bunny
We are welcoming a very special guest to the Blacksmiths Restaurant on Easter Sunday between 12 noon and 3pm. The Easter Bunny himself will be here and will be giving out free chocolate eggs to the children. Bring the whole family along for a hearty two course carvery, including a main course of gammon or turkey served with a Yorkshire pudding, fresh seasonal vegetable medley and roast or mash potatoes, followed by a delicious dessert of sticky toffee pudding or fruit crumble. All for $11.30! Call 01461 338365 to book a table.
