Easter egg hunts at Dunstable Downs

Join us for an Easter adventure in nature at Dunstable Downs and Whipsnade Estate. Discover our family-friendly trail with fun activities for you 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 the same. However, we are expecting to be very busy, so please stay local, be patient, and follow the signs and instructions from our staff and volunteers. We are following Government guidance to ensure social distancing and keep staff, volunteers, and visitors safe. If our car park becomes full, the gates will be closed, and we'll ask you to return when it is quieter. Please respect our local community and do not park on verges, local roads or yellow lines.


Easter adventures in nature

Thursday 1 April to Monday 5 April | 10am to 3pm (last entry 3pm)

Discover the signs of spring across the beautiful landscape of Dunstable Downs and Whipsnade Estate along our Easter egg trail. Listen out for the skylarks singing and see lambs leaping as your imagination runs wild across the rolling hills. With breath-taking views across five counties on a clear day, become an expert cloud spotter and find the wildflowers in the grass before returning to claim your chocolate prize!   Pick up your Easter trail pack for £3 from our welcome team which includes your chocolate reward (or non-edible equivalent). 

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