Easter days out at Ashridge

Easter 2017 at Ashridge 2 Herts

Due to the poor weather over the Easter weekend we have extended our Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt to this week. Hop into the visitor centre 10am-4pm to run through muddy woodlands on our Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt. (Whilst stocks last)

This event has already happened , we will update this page for 2019.

Cadbury Easter Egg hunt

The Cadbury Easter bunny has fallen down a time travelling rabbit hole and had landed in a very different looking Ashridge Estate. Follow Bunny's clues on this year's Easter trail and collect a delicious Cadbury chocolate treat.

Collect your map; follow the trail to discover animals that have lived at Ashridge throughout history. Find the Irish elk, the straight-tusked elephant and friends that used to roam the woods, then return to the visitor centre to claim your Cadbury's choccy treat.

Choose from two routes, a buggy friendly trail or a longer route designed to tire little legs.

The trail is very popular so arrive early to avoid disappointment and be prepared for queues as Easter is one of our busiest times of the year. Our overflow car park is also weather dependent, as it is not hard standing. If we get very busy and the car park becomes full, we may have to take the difficult decision to close. The safety and well-being of our visitors is our top priority. We recommend keeping an eye on our website, Facebook and Twitter for live updates. 

Due to the very wet weather over the Easter weekend we have decided to extend the trail to this week. Hop to the visitor centre 10am-4pm,  £5 per trail (whilst stocks last).

The Wildwood Den is perfect for blowing off post-chocolate energy before heading home. Little explorers can also tick off a number of the 50 Things to do before you are 11 3/4, you can hunt for bugs, create some wild art or try a spot of bird watching.

The visitor centre has all the necessary amenities including baby changing and toilets, as well as our shop for those last minute Easter gifts.
