Explore what Waverley has to offer this bank holiday weekend

Published Wednesday, 27 April 2016

With plenty of family-friendly fun on offer there’s no need to leave Waverley this bank holiday weekend.

This bank holiday provides a great opportunity to get together with family and loved-ones and to take advantage of the numerous activities and events on offer.

From traditional fairground rides and fair stalls waiting to be rifled through to fully-grown men having a shouting match or the opportunity to explore a caving system, there’s no shortage of planned events and activities.

If a quieter weekend is on the agenda why not take a walk through our lovely Waverley countryside?
