Easter days out in Sussex

This Easter, at a special place near you in Sussex, there are trails throughout the school holidays created specially for families, including Petworth, Standen, Uppark, Bateman's and Bodiam Castle. Our Cadbury Egg Hunts are brimming with clues and challenges. The trails test your powers of observation and deduction and lead to intriguing new discoveries about nature, wildlife and the places you visit. When you follow an Easter trail, you help us look after these places for generations to come.
