Visiting over the Easter weekend

The Easter bank holiday weekend can be a very busy time at Basildon Park, so we've put together some tips for you to get the most out of your visit:

  • Our busiest times are usually between 11:30am - 2:30pm. We may need to manage the car park during these times. For a quieter visit, we'd recommend arriving when we open at 10am, or later in the afternoon.
  • We'd recommend starting the trail before 3:30pm so you have time to collect your prize at the end.
  • There are plenty of picnic spots around the grounds, and picnic benches near the Stableyard and at the entrance to the gardens. We ask that you do not picnic in the car park during this time.


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.
