Easter school holiday 2024

East is the first "proper" school holiday of the year - we say proper because this is the first time we can get away in the UK, and expect some reasonable weather. Of course, you lucky people who can jet off to sunnier climes don't need to worry about that! Either way, if you're looking to get away for a few days during this nice long extended break, have a look at some of the holidays we've picked here. There's a good choice of lodges and park holiday in the UK; and we'll show you some holidays which may well suit your needs.

For 2024 there's villas available here too! If you're looking for an Easter break, have a quick look and see what's available.

Whitsun Holiday - 25th May 2024 - 5th June 2024 (roughly!)

The weather should be warming up for the next school holidays - Whitsun. I say should be warming-up, because at the time of writing it still blinkin' cold! Anyway, we've got some family holidays during the Whitsun holidays in this country and overseas. Should you fancy a Whitsun 2024 holiday on a UK holiday park or holiday cottage; or you want to nip off further afield with a Whitsun 2024 package holiday. Whatever type of holiday you're after, we really hope you find something which takes your fancy.
