Easter hunt fun

Easter days out in Berkshire 

Bunny’s nose is twitching, nature is waking up after the long sleep of winter. This Easter holiday, at a special place near you, there’s a spring trail brimming with clues and challenges. The trails test your powers of observation and deduction and lead to intriguing new discoveries about the places you visit. When you follow a spring trail, you help us look after special places like Hughenden and Cliveden for those who follow.
