Easter in Dundee

With the way Easter falls this year, Easter 2013 is the perfect time to take a holiday break or long weekend away to Dundee. With so much going on over this time in Dundee, there are loads of Easter treats for whole family.

Easter Outdoors

Glamis Castle is just 12 miles from Dundee and makes a great day trip; it opens this year on 29th March, just in time to see the gardens at their best, including a mile long avenue lined with daffodils. There's a lot to explore: on the Nature Trail you might see red squirrels, roe deer and heron, and there are walled gardens and kitchen gardens too. Oh, and the Castle itself is pretty spectacular too. http://www.glamis-castle.co.uk

Easter with the kids

For some family fun, try the Easter Wildlife Fun Day at Camperdown Wildlife Centre. Spring is a great time to see the animals - from lemurs to otters and highland cows - and there are family activities to try, too.

Sensation, Dundee's Science Centre, is another great place to visit with the kids. It's a fun, hands-on way to learn about science, and adults seem to enjoy it just as much as the kids.

For a more action-packed day, skater kids will enjoy the excellent community-run Factory Skatepark, while 5-11 year olds can go next door to the custom-built soft play extravaganza of Fun Factory.

Easter at Apex City Quay Hotel and Spa

If all of this sounds like too much effort and you just want to relax, we understand. At the hotel's own Yu Spa you'll be able to soak in the hot tubs, enjoy the steam room and sauna, or take a dip in the pool - all included in your hotel stay.
