Join the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

Carpets of crocus at Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire

The Easter holidays are a great time to get the whole family outdoors with longer and warmer days sure to put you in the mood for some fresh air fun.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt
Saturday 24 March – Friday 6 April, 10.30am to 5pm.

£2 per hunt. Normal admission prices apply. There is no admission charge for Under 5s and National Trust members.

Here at Lacock, spring is a time when we welcome lots of new arrivals out in the grounds, from beautiful carpets of flowers to tiny lambs bouncing about the fields. But some of our baby creatures are a little harder to find…

We all know about Easter eggs, but that crafty bunny has hidden eight eggs of a different nature around the abbey grounds. Follow the clues on your Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt map, and solve the clues to work out which animal laid the egg. Don’t forget to hop back to the courtyard to claim your prize when you’re finished.

*The useful bits

We are expecting to be very busy over the Easter weekend but don't worry, we will be running the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt every day from Saturday 24 March – Friday 6 April, and it might be less busy during the week.

When parking, please follow the signs and instructions to the Hither Way car park. Our volunteers and staff will be happy to help you with any queries you may have. If you need priority parking, freeing up as many accessible spaces as possible to those that really need them.

We have our lovely Stables café in the village serving hot drinks, cakes, ice-creams and hot and cold lunches as well as our new Courtyard tea-room which will also be open for refreshments. If you have young ones that may struggle with waiting times, we recommend bringing a picnic. You are welcome to dine al fresco in the pound in the village, or on benches in the grounds. 

The Cadbury Egg Hunt is along a wheelchair and buggy-friendly route.

We will have a limited number of non-chocolate prizes available for children who can't eat chocolate.
