Easter at Dunham Massey 2021

Join us for an Easter adventure in nature at Dunham Massey. Pre-booked ticket holders can purchase a family-friendly trail on the day with fun activities to do along the way. Complete the trail and earn your chocolate reward at the end.

We know how much joy our Easter egg trails bring to our visitors each year and we hope this year will be no different. However, we ask that you help us to stay open safely by booking your admission tickets in advance (you cannot pre-book your Easter trail).

Easter adventures in nature

Thursday 1 to Sunday 18 April (while stocks last), 10am – 4pm

Shake like a squirrel, reach like a rainbow and spot the signs of spring as you explore the gardens and park at Dunham Massey and complete activities at the 10 trail points. Take as long as you need, have fun and take it all in! What will you discover along the trail?

Each trail pack includes an activity sheet, pencil and your tasty chocolate egg or allergen free reward. Each trail pack costs £3 plus general admission to Dunham Massey. Trail packs will not be sold to visitors without a pre-booked admission ticket to enable us to keep a safe capacity in the gardens.

Before visiting, please check local and national government guidance on travelling.

Book your visit

You don’t need to book your Easter trails in advance, but you will need to book your visit. The pre-booking system helps us manage visitor numbers and keep everyone safe. On the day, pre-booked ticket holders can purchase their Easter adventures in nature trail from near the visitor centre.

Tickets are released every Friday, so you won't be able to book your Easter visit until Friday 26 March.

Please book ahead before visiting

The car park, deer park and gardens at Dunham Massey are open. We've introduced advance booking to keep everyone safe and maintain social distancing. To avoid disappointment please book your visit in advance. You'll need to book your tickets by 3pm the day before your visit.
