Quirky Easter Things to Do in the DeanWye

There are lots of traditional Easter things you can enjoy in the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, but here are a selection of slightly quirky ideas you may want to look at instead!

Happy Easter!

Eggstremely Slimy and other Quirks

Bathe in the spring warmth of the Forest


Shinrin-yoku (or forest bathing) means ‘bathing’ all the senses, whilst taking in the forest atmosphere. Regular forest bathing lowers blood pressure, reduces stress, improves empathy and creativity, and boosts our immune systems!

Forest Easter Feasts
