This half-term, families will enjoy a free Easter trail around Bedford Place, Calrton Place, and London Road.

The Easter Bunny has hidden colourful Easter egg designs in shop windows for children, and adults alike, to ‘hop’ around the streets of Southampton and find all 15 eggs in return for a prize.

The FREE family walking trail, organised by the city’s BID team GO! Southampton, offers an ‘egg-citing’ hunt around Bedford Place, Carlton Place, and London Road that will run from Saturday 1st until Sunday 16th April.

Participants can download a trail map to record their Easter egg discoveries, or collect a free copy from The Marlands Shopping Centre, MAST Mayflower Studios, Mexigo, or at W.J. French & Son.

Once completed, egg hunters can hand the map in to W.J. French & Son on Bedford Place to receive a special gift. There will also be the chance to enter into a prize draw to win an £100 gift card to spend in W.J. French & Son.

Plus, families can enjoy an extra little surprise when they stop off at the treat location at Mexigo on London Road.

Stephen Manion, Executive Director at GO! Southampton is pleased to be able to offer this free Easter-themed activity for local families.

He said: “This is a great way to keep the kids, and adults, entertained over the Easter period. We’re hoping to provide a bit of extra excitement for our residents in the school holidays, as well as giving visitors another reason to keep coming into the city.”

The trail will be open from Saturday 1st until Sunday 16th April. All 15 eggs will be clearly displayed in shop windows, plus in one bonus treat location.
