Easter egg hunt at Basildon Park

Join us for an Easter adventure in nature at Basildon Park. Discover our family-friendly trail with fun activities for you to do along the way. Complete the trail and earn your chocolate reward. We know how much joy our Easter egg trails bring to our visitors each year and we hope this year will be the same. However, we ask that you support your local property and tickets to the property must be booked in advance.

This year's Easter trail has now finished.

Easter Adventures in Nature

Adventure across the parkland at Basildon Park in search for fun family activities in nature as you earn your way to a delicious easter prize. Each £3 trail pack will include a trail, a pencil and a chocolate easter egg. Please let the team know when you arrive if you would like an allergen free prize. 

Before visiting, please check local and national government guidance on travelling.

Book your visit

You don’t need to book your Easter trails, but you will need to book your Easter visit. To manage visitor numbers so that social distancing can be ensured for the safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors, the pre-booking system still applies.

Booking will provide access to the property, not the Easter adventures in nature trail, which can be purchased on the day. Tickets are released every Friday, so you won't be able to book your Easter visit until Friday 26 March. 

Can't visit us this Easter?


We have an accessible toilet next to the mansion and also in the stableyard, with baby-changing facilities inside. For more access information, please visit 'Facilities and Access' on our website homepage. 

Wet weather

If it has been raining, please dress apropriately for the weather, and don't forget your wellies!
