Some are Easter-themed and some can be visited at other times of the year too.

Hop over to the Scotsdales nursery this Easter and let the kids take part in the egg-citing Easter Bunny Hunt. All they have to do is collect a trail sheet, search for bunnies and write down where they found them. If they manage to find them all, there’s a special Easter treat on offer.
The Little Prince: An Easter Holidays Performance, Waterstones Cambridge
Watch the funny story of The Little Prince by Antoine De Saint-Exupery performed by Matthew Dexter at the Waterstones store in Cambridge.
