As Easter approaches and most of us have a 4 day break we start to think what we can do in those precious few days. Good Friday is on 2 April in 2010 and as ever the weather can be very unpredictable at this time of year. I have known there being snow at Easter as well as warm and sunny weather so planning a day out is best left to the last minute.
In past years I have managed a BBQ at Easter sometimes, but other years I have had snowball fights.New research has shown that London will be the top destination this Easter as people go for the so called “staycation” option for the forthcoming Bank Holiday.
Despite the weather in Spain being sunny and warm at Easter hoteliers in Spain are saying that bookings are down despite prices being reduced. It seems, therefore that many people are looking to spend time shopping or going to a West End Show rather than spending time on the beach and eating out looking out over the sea on a warm evening.
I know what I would rather do…I prefer the warm and sunny weather in Spain than I would trailing around shops on a busy London high street in the rain!UK Theme Parks have also continued to increase in popularity.
More than 14 million people are expected to visit a theme park in 2010 and more people are spending a few days at a Theme Park and staying in a nearby hotel. Over 1 million more people visited a theme park last year and that trend is set to continue.
