Easter at Antony

Family enjoying the Cadbury Easter Egg hunt

The cheeky Cadbury bunny has been hopping through the garden leaving sweet treats for families and there are blooms and colours around every corner.

Cadbury Easter egg hunt

The Cadbury Easter egg hunt is back for 2019 and it’s a celebration of new life. You have the chance to join the hunt for clues around the garden and dance amongst the ribbons under the walnut tree which will be decorated with over 1000 colourful eggs. This year, the hunt follows the life cycle of the butterfly so there will be plenty of visual treats in store as families make their way around the garden. The lawn next to the house will be the focus of a giant installation of Flora, the goddess of flowers and spring. You’ll have the opportunity to add branches to her ever increasing skirt. A chocolate Cadbury reward waits at the finish line.

Fun for grown-ups

Antony is a home with a heartbeat and the live-in family, the Carew-Poles, still use the rooms you can see on your visit. The doors open for the season on Tue 2 Apr. The start of the season is the best time to see the rooms and collections looking at their absolute best after the careful conservation work of the winter months.
