Easter adventure in nature trail

Join us for an Easter trail around the grounds spotting signs of spring as the gardens and countryside come alive with the warmer, longer days.

Every day from Thursday 1 - Sunday 25 Apr 2021, 10am-4pm.

£3 per pack which includes an activity trail sheet, pencil and chocolate treat or toy prize. Suitable for 4-10 year olds. This year's prize is a National Trust chocolate egg, made in the UK using sustainably sourced Rainforest Alliance chocolate. (Whilst stocks last.)

Book your visit

You don’t need to book your Easter trails, just your Easter visit. The pre-booking system is in place to manage visitor numbers so that social distancing can be ensured for the safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors. 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 will be able to book your Easter visit from Friday 26 March.  For everyone's safety, please only visit if you have a ticket. Before visiting, please check local and national government guidance on travelling.
