Easter days out in Surrey

This Easter, at a special place near you in Surrey, there are trails throughout the school holidays, created specially for families including Polesden Lacey, Claremont Landscape Garden, Winkworth Arboretum, Hatchlands Park and Box Hill.

On the Easter weekend our Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts are brimming with clues and challenges at 10 places in Surrey. The trails test your powers of observation and deduction and lead to intriguing discoveries about nature, wildlife and the places you visit.

When you come on an Easter trail, you help us look after these places for generations to come.
