Spring has officially sprung, and Easter is almost here, so it’s time to start thinking about all things tulips, bunnies and, of course, chocolate eggs!

Your guide to Easter celebrations starts here at Glasgow Fort – with everything you need to get your wardrobe and home ready for the new season, and plenty of egg-citing ways to enjoy the break.

Don’t forget to check out our Easter opening times before your visit.

 

Enjoy an egg-cellent day out together

You’ll be spoilt for choice for things to do over Easter at Glasgow Fort– whether you’re visiting with kids, friends, partners or parents, there’s something for everyone.

Kick back and relax in front of the big screen with an Easter cinema trip to Vue to enjoy new releases including Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

Vue mini mornings run all through the school holidays, showing Rabbit Academy- as long as there's at least one child in your group, the whole family pays the same price of £2.49 per person. 

Finish your Easter day out at one of our restaurants, with options for everyone including wagamama, Nando’s, Stack & Still and Bread Meats Bread.

With a two-week school break, you’ll be looking for plenty of things to do with the kids. And there’s lots of Easter fun to be had at home with the right supplies.

Head to Hobbycraft and pick up everything you’ll need for an Easter scavenger hunt – from eggs to baskets.  Why not have an Easter arts and crafts day with paints, crayons, colouring pencils and more.

Or for some outdoor fun get them exploring nature with some gardening gloves and seeds from Asda to plant some flowers or vegetables.
