Easter at Castle Ward

Easter Week at Castle Ward 1

We're celebrating all things nature at Castle Ward this Easter from 26 March - 8 April with our Mary Ward Discovery Zone and bug detecting in the mansion, as well as our Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts over Easter weekend!

In 2018 the National Trust is celebrating 100 years since some women were first granted the right to vote in the UK with Women and Power. We're celebrating the stories of the women who've helped shape our places. Here at Castle Ward, we'll be talking about Mary Ward - a famed author, microscopist, astronomer, artist and author. 

Mary Ward Nature Discovery Zone

The Theatre will become the Mary Ward Discovery Zone from Monday 26 March - Sunday 8 April. You'll be getting a chance to become a scientist for the day, using microscopes, just like Mary Ward to discover the secrets of the natural world! Running daily 11am - 4pm.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts

We're running our annual Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts again! Come along to solve bunny's questions on your way down to the farmyard where you can pick up your Cadbury chocolate prize. Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts are running Friday 30 March - Tuesday 3 April.
Hunts are £1.50 per child.
