Fun things to see and do in Lancashire

Easter isn't just about stuffing your face with chocolate – it's a time to get together as a family and head outdoors for some fun.

Free Sunday at Thompson Park Railway
Sunday 28 April, Thompson Park, Burnley

The Burnley and Pendle Miniature Railway Society was established in 1990, by a few locals who all shared a common interest; miniature railways. The society soon grew to have a dozen or so active members, and their popular miniature railway is free for all on Sunday 28 April! 

Easter egg rolling
Monday 22 April, Avenham and Miller Parks, Preston

This year's fantastic Egg Rolling event brings you an exciting and varied programme of workshops, street theatre and live music as well the traditional Easter Bonnet competition. But most importantly, don't forget to bring your Easter eggs to roll down the hill!

Official egg rolls will take place on the hour every hour at Avenham Park.

  • Avenham and Millar Parks are close to Preston city centre. Get there on hotline from Blackburn and Burnley

Farmers market at the Great Barn
Monday 22 April, Hoghton Tower

Set in the stunning surroundings of Hoghton Tower, the Easter Farmers Market takes place in Hoghton's Great Barn. Delicious local produce and dozens of stalls, as well as a peek inside the Grade 1 listed Tower itself make this a bank holiday attraction with a difference!

  • Hotline stops right outside Hoghton Tower – get there from Burnley, Blackburn and Preston

Make it a family day

Don't break the bank this Easter - any five people can travel together all over Lancashire and Yorkshire for just £19. Buy your Daytripper Group from the driver or on our app, Transdev Go - search 'Transdev Go' on the App Store or Google Play.
