Easter egg hunts at Mottistone Gardens

Join us for an Easter adventure in nature on the Isle of Wight this year at Mottistone Gardens. 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 ask that you support your local property and tickets must be booked in advance.


Easter adventures in nature

Trail available while stocks last, 10.30am to 4.30pm (last admission 3.30pm)

£3 per trail

Collect your Easter trail from the Welcome Team, complete with activity sheet and pencil, and head off to start your adventure. Listen to the sounds of spring as you explore the ten activity points within the gardens. Discover the flowers waking up after winter and the fruit and vegetables that are beginning to grow. Why not head up to our Wild Area and make some stick sculptures, looking out for animal tracks along the way? Discover the beautiful colours of the garden on your Easter trail and when you have found all ten points, don’t forget to ‘hop’ over to our collection area to claim your egg or allergen free reward.

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

Book your visit

You don’t need to book your Easter trails, but you will need to book your Easter visit. To manage visitor numbers so that social distancing can be ensured for the safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors, the pre-booking system still applies. Booking will provide access to the property, not the Easter adventures in nature trail, which can be purchased on the day.

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

Get to know three special wildlife friends and be inspired by the great outdoors as you find out interesting facts, get creative, or do something for nature. And there's inspiration and activities for adults too.
