Easter egg hunts in Surrey

The natural world is waking up after the long sleep of winter. This Easter holiday, at a special place near you, there’s plenty to keep the whole family busy. We've got acres of space to let off steam and our '50 Things to do before you're 11 3/4' will get you closer to nature. When you go on an Easter adventure, you help us look after special places like Polesden Lacey, Claremont Landscape Garden, Hatchlands Park and Winkworth Arboretum.

Claremont Landscape Garden, Surrey

Claremont Landscape Garden 

This spring, look out for colourful camellias in bloom. Baby wildfowl wobble along the paths and woodpeckers and thrushes can be heard singing noisily. Bluebells emerge too in areas of dappled shade. Refresh yourself after your walk with hot and cold takeaway drinks and snacks from the Cube kiosk and watch your little ones blow off some steam in the natural play area Badgers Basecamp.

Winkworth Arboretum, Surrey

Winkworth Arboretum 

Swathes of bluebells appear from late March onwards carpeting the arboretum floor in purple. Magnolias, camellias and rhododendrons add colour too, blossoming throughout spring in varying shades of pastel. Follow the clues all around the arboretum on our Easter egg hunt and win a chocolate reward. Enjoy hot and cold takeaway drinks and snacks from the cafe and have a well-earned sit down while the kids explore the Tree Adventure play area.
