Easter days out at Cliveden

Two boys take part in a Cadbury Easter Egg hunt at Tredegar House

Fill your Easter with family fun, chocolate treats and eggciting egg hunts! Cliveden is open everyday from 10am to 5.30pm, but if you want to avoid the queues, we recommend visiting from 12pm onward and packing a picnic.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt: Springing to Life

We’ve partnered with Cadbury again to host our annual Easter Egg Hunt around the Cliveden National Trust estate. The trail starts on Saturday 6 April and is on every day until Monday 22 April (10.30am - 3.30pm), including the Easter weekend (expect Easter weekend to be the busiest days!)

The theme for the trail is natural life cycles and the various stages animals go through in their lives. It's designed to be an educational trail where children can learn about nature whilst still having fun. There'll be clues along the trail for children to solve and receive a Cadbury chocolate prize at the end. Trails cost £3 per child (includes the Cadbury prize) plus usual admission to the estate. The trail is on hard-standing paths, meaning it is fully accessible for push-chairs and wheelchairs. If you have individual access needs you need to discuss, please call the estate on 01628 605069.

Spring gardens

Our formal gardens and naturalised woodlands come to life with the arrival of spring. Gardens are filled with scent and colour whilst the woodlands brim with wildflowers. Migrant birds can be heard singing and bees and butterflies take flight. Enjoy all these signs of spring at Cliveden on your next visit.

Avoid the crowds and pack a picnic

On busy days, such as Easter weekend, the queues can soon build up in our Orangery Café, so why not skip the queue and bring your own food and drink from home or nip into the shops before arriving to the site. There are many grassy areas around the estate for you to set down a woolly rug on, or picnic tables for you to dine off.
