Easter days out at Basildon Park

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt through daffodils

Celebrate the Easter holidays, and the Easter weekend, at Basildon Park. With walks to suit everyone, an Easter trail and the Cadbury Easter Hunt over the Easter weekend, there's plenty for everyone to get involved with.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt 

From 14 - 17 Apr we will be holding the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt.

Bunny has been spotted hopping along the garden paths looking for the perfect spot to hide some of his Cadbury chocolate. Luckily, Bunny has left some clues to point you in the right direction. Can you follow his trail of giant eggs to find a yummy chocalate treat at the end before his bunny friends do?

The Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt will be on from 10am until 5pm Friday to Monday over the Easter weekend. It costs £3 per child plus normal admission charges.

Spring Trail

Throughout the two weeks of the Easter holidays, apart from the four days of the Easter weekend, there will be a spring trail for families to follow. A chance for children, and adults, to discover more of Basildon Park and what is happening in nature at this time of the year, and receive a sweet treat at the end. 

The trail costs £3 per person plus normal admission charges. 

50 things to do before you're 11 3/4 

Natural play can be the most inspiring and rewarding way for kids to learn. Take the waymarked route in pink to discover Basil Den and see how many of the 50 things your kids can tick off their list today, including den-building and hunting for bugs. 

Tasty treats for all the family

After your adventure in the grounds, why not pay a visit to the tea-room? From tasty soups and sandwiches, to kid’s boxes and cakes, we have something for everyone. 

Pushchairs and dogs are welcome in the Old Kitchen, and we even have complimentary dog biscuits and water for your furry friends.


If you're driving we advise arriving early to avoid disappointment as the car park can reach capacity as early as one hour after opening during school holidays.

To ensure the safety of our visitors, once at capacity the gates will close for vehicle access until a number of spaces become available. Once inside the property, parking is free. 

Walkers are always welcome to enter through the front gates during opening hours. Please be advised that it is around a 40 minute walk to Basildon Park from Pangbourne train station along a main road.
