THIS INFORMATION IS ABOUT EASTER 2017. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR INFORMATION ABOUT 2018 IN DUE COURSE. Whether you fancy racing a rubber duck, crafting an Easter basket or just running headlong through the park on our Cadbury Egg Hunt, there's plenty to keep you busy at Morden Hall Park this Easter. Cadbury Egg Hunt runs Apr 14-17, 10am to 5pm. Welcome desk closes 4pm.

Cadbury Egg Hunt

That clever Bunny has hidden eggs in all of the animal habitats in the park. Go on a journey of discovery as you track down the eggs and learn about them on the way. Once you've outwitted Bunny there is a delicious Cadbury chocolate treat for every child at the end.

From Friday 14 to Monday 17 April you can turn up any time between 10am and 4pm and join the hunt. Hunt closes 5pm. Our Cadbury Egg Hunt costs £4 per child.

Start your hunt from the Welcome Desk in the picnic area next to the Stableyard. You can pay by card or with cash. This is an outdoor event, so dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.

Quacky Races

Our classic Quacky Races event is pure riotous entertainment. Borrow one of our Morden Hall Park ducks and send it whizzing down the River Wandle. See whose duck swims the fastest, and who can cheer the loudest! Just turn up on the day, hire a duck and sign up for a race.

Race day is Thursday 6 April and you can take part any time between 11am and 3pm. It costs £1.50 to hire a duck.

Easter Baskets 

In the week before our Cadbury Egg Hunt begins we are giving you the chance to be creative and make a charming Easter basket in Morden Hall Park Garden Centre. You could bring it with you on the Cadbury Egg Hunt too.

Easter basket making will be taking place every day from Monday 10 to Thursday 13 April between 10am and 12 noon. Each basket you make will cost £2.
