Easter adventures at Blickling Estate

Join us from Monday 30 March - Sunday 19 April for family fun across the estate. Take part in an Easter nature adventure around the colourful, springtime garden and enjoy a delicious Cadbury treat...


Discover Blickling's caddisfly

This Easter we’re inviting budding nature explorers to find out more about the Blickling caddisfly, found in the River Bure on the estate. From Monday 30 March - Sunday 19 April find out about these fascinating insects and receive a delicious Cadbury chocolate treat, upon completion of the trail. With two different garden trails to choose from, there's something for all ages to discover. 


We have a special garden entry ticket for non-members of £12.50* per adult with children and National Trust members free. The trail price of £2.50 will apply to all who take up the challenge and each completed trail receives a Cadbury chocolate treat.

*As a charity, Gift Aid allows us to reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer. Special adult garden entry only available from 30 March - 19 April 2020.
