Easter egg hunts at Calke Abbey

A family enjoying spring at Calke Abbey, Derbyshire

Join us for an Easter adventure in nature at Calke Abbey. Discover our family-friendly trail with fun activities for you to do along the way.

Easter adventures in nature

Our Easter trail runs from Sat 9–Fri 22 April, between 10am and 5pm, with last entry at 4pm. The trail costs £3 per child, and normal admission applies. 

Embark on a self-led adventure in the great outdoors, searching for nature-themed activities. There are two routes for you to explore this Easter – the longer route (approx. 3km) takes you across historic parkland to Calke Explore, while the shorter route (approx. 1.5km) explores the Pleasure Grounds and is step-free. Both trails have the same activities, so you can tailor your egg hunt to suit your family.

To get started, pick up your trail pack from the Ticket Office, which contains an Easter activity sheet, pencil and tasty Rainforest Alliance chocolate treat (or allergen-free alternative).
