Easter is a lovely time of year with the expectation of warmer weather and lots of things to do. Here’s our local round up of What’s On over the bank holiday weekend in and around Newmarket.

On the Trail of Dick Francis – Saturday 16th April
Away from the Easter theme, Discover Newmarket is running their literary tour, based on the crime novels by Dick and Francis Felix. Join us on this very special guided tour, via bus and foot, around the historic town. See many of the places that crime novelist and former steeplechase champion, Francis, featured in his realistic plots based in and around Newmarket. Your tour ends with a cream tea at the Bedford Lodge Hotel which as avid fans will know, was a popular place for some of the characters to stay. Click here to book.
Burwell Museum – Sunday 17th and Monday 18th April
After their winter break, this wonderful Museum, portraying Fen life in a series of re-created scenes and exhibitions, re-opens at Easter with a host of activities. Events include an Easter Egg Hunt around the museum grounds, best Easter Bonnet competition with winners being judged via socials as well as Windmill Tours. Find out more here.
