To help out, we have put together a few ideas on how to spend your bank holidays in Fife this year, which are Good Friday (19th April), a May bank holiday (6th May) and a spring bank holiday (27th May).
Later on in the year we will have some suggestions for your summer bank holiday (5th August) too, but for now, read on to discover some of the best springtime activities Fife has to offer…
Over the Easter weekend (Fri 19th-Sun 21st April), you and the kids can take part in an Easter Egg Hunt at Culross Palace, making your way around the stunning estate grounds in search of chocolaty treats!
If the spring bank holiday weekend (25th-27th May) turns out to be a sunny one, then you could also head to Dunnikier Country Park Fayre in Kirkcaldy, for a day jam-packed with music, inflatables, kids’ rides and much more!
Fife’s coastline is a treasure trove of remarkable views and invigorating walks. Widely known as home to some of the best beaches in Scotland, a stroll along the golden beaches on the Fife coastal path will give your bank holiday a breath of fresh air.
