Availability update

We've loved welcoming you on our Easter adventures in nature trail. Unfortunately we've no more supplies for the weekend and the last day of the paid trail with the chocolate egg will be Friday 22 April. You can still take part in the trail for free on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 April and our cafe and shop will be open for you to treat yourself afterwards. If you'd like to do the trail over the weekend, pick up a trail sheet and a pencil from the A-frame outside the Info Centre in the Walled Garden Main Visitor Car Park.

Practical Information

Pick up your trail guide at the Event Tent outside the Info Centre in the Walled Garden Car Park.  Follow the trail on your adventure through Cliveden's grounds and collect your prize at the end.  

There are toilets at two points along the trail route - in the Gas Yard by the Walled Garden and also at the Conservatory Cafe a third of the way along the trail route.  

Dogs are welcome to enjoy the trail with you.  

Head to the Kiosk in the Walled Garden for a range of hot and cold drinks and snacks.

The trail is accessible for buggies and wheelchairs and there is a shorter route marked on the trail sheet with an orange dotted line for littler legs.

Please note that normal admission prices to enter the estate apply.

Pack a picnic (...and a bin bag!)

On busy days, such as Easter weekend, the queues can soon build up in our food outlets, so skip the queue and bring your own food and drink from home. 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. If you bring your own bin bag you'll help keep the estate clean and green, just the way we like it!
