Sunny days are just around the corner and we've got plenty to entertain you and your family this spring. Release your inner super sleuth with our Easter quests, watch lances shatter in a medieval joust and play like a pirate in a coastal castle.

Take a look at the nation's top 10 castles as chosen by our Facebook fans, or a selection of days out for under £20.
