The Chocolate Ecstasy Tour

Easter means chocolate, right? So, if you want to indulge in some sugary sweet treats this Easter, one of the best things that you can do is head slightly out of Gatwick to Brighton. Brighton has a walking tour of its chocolate boutiques in the region. You can sample some of the delicious wares and find out more about how chocolate is manufactured in the region. The Chocolate Ecstasy Tour opens to the public from 10am daily. The costs can vary so it’s worth checking it out for you. The best thing about this tour is that it is a walking tour. So, you can indulge in your favourite artisan chocolate treats without worrying about packing on the pounds. It’s practically guilt free! What’s more, you will learn a lot too.


Market Town Delights

The great thing about Gatwick is that you are centrally located to some of the best places in the UK. The little market town of Horsham has some fantastic local events within its midst this bank holiday. Make sure that you check out the local Easter farmers market. This can be a great way to indulge in some of the best foods of the countryside. With a strong focus on local and artisan cuisine, you can ensure that you are supporting the local economy and ditching the big name, chain restaurants. The market town of Horsham is geared up for some fantastic Easter treats.  There is a myriad of amazing boutique stores, pubs and restaurants. Did you know that Horsham has a reputation for being the dining out capital of the UK? If you want good, hearty local cuisine at amazing prices, head out for an Easter Sunday lunch at one of the many restaurants in the town.


Lambing Season is Underway!

What could be more magical than witnessing the birth of a lamb? Easter is all about new life, and now you can be a part of it. The magic of Gatwick is that it is located in the beautiful, scenic heart of the West Sussex countryside. As such, there are many opportunities to get involved with local life. Head to Fishers Adventure Farm and see the miracle of life as it happens. The Lambing season ends at the end of April. So, even if you don’t get a chance to visit Gatwick this Easter, you still have time to see this once in a lifetime event!
