Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

Enjoy a nature themed trail through the parkland, solve the clues and claim your chocolate prize.

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

Cadbury is once again supporting the National Trust to host this year's Easter Trail at Hatchlands Park which will run right through the Easter school holidays. Normal admission, plus £3 per trail.

Our Easter trails are extremely popular, especially over Easter weekend. If you'd prefer to avoid queues and crowds, we'd recommend a midweek visit outside the bank holiday weekend. There are also lots of other Cadbury's Easter Egg Hunts happening at our neighbouring properties.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

 

*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

Please note...

Entry for National Trust members is free.
