Family fun this Easter at Gibside

From a free activity every day of the school holidays to a Cadbury Egg Hunt, and egg rolling to the annual Mouse House competition. Easter is upon us.

There's plenty going on to keep the whole family entertained this Easter and with spring awakening there's lots of wildlife and nature to see too.

After your Easter adventures highlighted below, there's no need for the fun to stop there. Strawberry Castle Play Area is ideal for more playtime and you can venture to the Bird Hide to get up close and personal with the gorgeous birds living here.

We tend to get very busy during the Easter holidays, so if you're planning on joining us with friends and other family members, it could be worthwhile organising a road trip to Gibside.

Car-sharing is highly recommended where possible or alternatively, the Go North East Red Kite R5 bus stops at Rowlands Gill, a short 10 minute walk from Gibside.

If you live a little more local, perhaps a stroll along the Derwent river would offer the best start to your Easter adventure. Thank you.
