From the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt to spring walking, seasonal treats in the tea-room and 50 things activities for children, there's plenty for the whole family to get involved with at Greys Court during the Easter holidays.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

From Fri 30 Mar to Mon 2 Apr we will be running a Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt. This is a chance to explore Greys Court and learn about life on a farm as you hunt down the clues to claim your chocolate prize. What will you learn about nature?

The hunt will be running from 10am until 5pm across the four days, and costs £3 each.

Please make sure you collect your chocolate prize before 5pm, as this is when the site closes and you don’t want to miss out on collecting your prize.

Greys Court chatterbox trail

After the Easter weekend is all over, children will be able to take a chatterbox trail and explore the estate to win a prize. Trails will cost £2 each and can be purchased at Visitor Reception. 

Easter in the house at Greys Court

The house will also be celebrating Easter, dressed for a traditional Brunner Easter celebration. Head to the kitchen for a delicious taster of Easter bakes, or take in the beautiful dining table set for Easter lunch. During busy periods, the house will operate with timed tickets, which will be handed out from Visitor Reception at a first come first served basis.

Spring walking

The Easter holidays are a great time to get out and about to discover what’s going on in nature at this time of the year.

A great opportunity for this is the estate walk around Greys Court. With spring flowers to spot along the route, and natural play spots for the kids to discover along the route, this makes for an ideal family outing to get everyone out of the house. Collect your estate map from Visitor Reception for walking routes.

50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾

Wondering how to entertain the kids outside? Ask the visitor reception team when you arrive for information about the 50 things activities you can do at Greys Court. From building a den to hunting for bugs there’s much to get them involved in.

Shopping and eating

New this year in the shop you can find some tasty Easter eggs unique to the National Trust. Treat your friends, family, or even yourself, to one of them this Easter.

Find seasonal delights in the tea-room during the Easter holidays. The kitchen garden, within the walled gardens at Greys Court, is providing some fresh produce for use in some of the dishes in the tea-room.
