Easter Fun at Canons Ashby

A family enjoying the Cadbury Egg Hunt

We have plenty of things to do with the family this Easter Holiday, so drop in and enjoy some nature-themed fun at Canons Ashby.

Join the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

Due to a wet soggy Easter we have decided to extend the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts until Thursday 5 April! Pop in to Visitor Reception to start your trail before 4pm.

A delicious Cadbury prize awaits at the end of our outdoor Easter Hunt. Bring the whole family to search high and low for clues across the ancient parkland. Answer the questions, learn something new about the fantastic birds who share Canons Ashby with us, then go to claim your prize! It’s £3 to join in and normal admission prices apply.
