  • Railcard.co.uk reveals the top 3 Easter Egg hunts in the UK

Soon children across Britain will be setting off on a hunt at their homes in search of chocolate eggs. For many families, Easter is just as important as Christmas (33%), and unsurprisingly, almost half say their children would be disappointed if they didn’t get to do an Easter Egg hunt (48%).

Research from Railcard.co.uk suggests that for four in ten people, it’s important to do something special as a family on Easter weekend (40%), so this year, why not take the hunt out of the home and arrange an egg-cellent day of fun? To make it easy, Railcard.co.uk has uncovered three of the best places to search out as many foil-wrapped chocolate treats as possible.
