The free family-friendly trail will run from 25-31st March in Cardiff City Centre.

Easter is just around the corner, and families looking for something to keep children busy for an afternoon will be pleased to see the return of Morgan Quarter’s free Easter Egg Trail, which will take them on an adventure through the historic Morgan and Royal Arcades.

The trail runs from 25 – 31st March, the first week of the Easter holidays, with the trail maps available to collect from The Pen and Paper in Royal Arcade. The trail will guide families around both the Royal and Morgan Arcades, collecting stamps along the way, with a prize of a sweet treat at the end.

Morgan Quarter centre manager, Marika Jones said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be hosting the Easter Egg Trail for a second year! We wanted to do something fun and free for families to get involved with during the school holidays.”

“These activities help to show off everything that our incredible arcades have to offer. Last year’s Easter Trail had more than 420 participants, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to create lasting memories with your loved ones in the historic Royal and Morgan Arcades this Easter break.”

The Easter Egg Trail illustrations and maps have been designed by local illustrator Chaunce Lewis, who said,

“It’s so fantastic to be asked to design the illustrations and map for the second year running. I’ve grown up coming to the Morgan Quarter, but I still manage to find something new every time I visit – I’m looking forward to doing the trail myself and seeing what I can find this time!”

The Morgan Quarter is open seven days a week between 8am-6pm, Monday-Saturday and 10am-5pm on Sunday.
