Easter fun around Hampshire

Throughout Easter you’ll find nature-themed Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts at Mottisfont, Hinton Ampner, The Vyne and Uppark (6-22 April). As spring bursts into life at our places, kids can make loads of wildlife discoveries on our special trails. Will you hear the splash of a jumping trout at Mottisfont, or find a hedgehog at Hinton Ampner? There’s several days of Cadbury fun at Winchester City Mill and in the New Forest too, plus yummy chocolate treats for all.

Wherever you visit, you're helping us protect nature in Hampshire.
