Easter Half Term Events in Bristol City Centre

With the kids off school for two whole weeks for Easter it can be a bit daunting finding things to fill the time, but fear not as the Bristol City Centre BID has put together this guide of some of the best attractions and deals to keep the whole family entertained over half term…


Kids eat free Monday to Friday between 12pm and 5pm at this city centre rooftop restaurant, and this is extended to cover brunch over the bank holiday! For every adult meal bought one child under 12 gets a free meal, and their menu is bound to please even the fussiest of little ones with burgers, meatballs, falafel and fish fingers to choose from.

Plus, they are putting on free events for kids from the wonderful Jolly Tots.

Bristol Aquarium

Throughout all of the Easter holidays there’ll be extra fun activities, talks and even a bouncy castle at Bristol Aquarium to celebrate their 10th birthday! You’ll also be able to check out the usual amazing exhibits including the Bay of Rays, the Urban Jungle and the Underwater Tunnel.

Bristol Old Vic

From 11am on Tuesday mornings during half term there will be free storytelling sessions at Bristol Old Vic. Grab a coffee at 1766 Bar and Kitchen whilst their fantastic storytellers entertain the kids, taking them on magical journeys and riotous adventures through their tales.

We The Curious

During Easter We The Curious are inviting visitors to make a promise to the planet through their new programme of activities all about the positive actions we can take to tackle the challenges facing our world. Prior booking is highly advised for their new Spring Stargazing 3D sessions!

The Lanes

Bowling and pizza are a winning combination and The Lanes has plenty of both to keep everyone entertained over half term! The ideal afternoon out for families or groups of friends alike, The Lanes has something for everyone with bowling, a karaoke room and pool tables.

Locked in a Room

Bristol’s largest escape room experience guarantees a unique, immersive and challenging experience that requires your team to work together to make it out in time! Perhaps not one for the younger family members, but under 14’s are welcome with parental supervision.
