Family looking at flowers through magnifying glasses

Join us for an Easter adventure in nature at Beningbrough. Discover our family-friendly trail with fun activities for you to do along the way. Complete the trail and earn your chocolate egg at the end.

Easter adventures in nature 

Now extended until Monday 2 May 2022, 10am - 4pm.

At the start of your Easter adventures in nature trail, pick up your activity pack to find details of the bespoke adventure to follow at Beningbrough. The cost is £3 per participant, and includes a trail map, pencil and a chocolate egg at the end.

Find and complete up to 10 nature-inspired activities that are hiding along the way. You're welcome to do as many or as few as suits your group. Peek around a pond, dream of home like a queen bee and spot spring colours as they burst into life are just some of the activities you can experience in the gardens at Beningbrough.

Finish the trail and collect your Rainforest Alliance chocolate egg or an allergen-free alternative at the end (whilst stocks last).
