Have fun at Lyme during the school holidays

Find a Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt near you

Schools out! Visit Lyme this school holiday and have fun with all the family. If you want to keep the children entertained this Easter, we have two weeks of fun filled activities, tons of outdoor space to run wild in and a Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt to complete!

Get sporty at Lyme

With all that chocolate consumed over Easter, head to the garden at Lyme for some fun sporty activities that will burn off some of that energy. All activities take place in the garden and will require a garden ticket. Most activities are run by Lyme's amazing volunteers, so whilst there will always be something on each day, we cannot guarantee everything listed will be on as advertised.
