*The useful bits

We are expecting to be very busy over the Easter weekend but don't worry, we have put all we can in  place to make sure that you won't have to wait too long for your hunt sheets and lunch.

When parking, please follow the signs and instructions from our team. Our main car park adjacent to the Visitor Centre will be reserved for priority parking, freeing up as many accessible spaces as possible to those that really need them.

We have a lovely cafe serving hot drinks, cakes, ice creams and hot and cold lunches as well as 'The Gallery' which will be open within the gardens during the holidays. If you have young ones that may struggle with waiting times, we recommend bringing a picnic and a blanket. You are welcome to dine al fresco in any part of the gardens.

Please pay for your hunts with card at the visitor centre when you buy your entry tickets or with cash inside the gardens at the start of the hunt.

The Cadbury Egg Hunt is along a wheelchair user and pram-friendly route.

We will have a limited number of non-chocolate prizes available for children who can't eat chocolate.

If you finish the trail after 3:30pm, you can still collect your prize from the Visitor Centre on your way home.
