Easter fun at Nymans

Family walking through spring garden

The garden and woods are great for some nature inspired exploring, as the trees, plants and wildlife come to life in spring. We've a variety of activities with something to keep everyone entertained this Easter, including our Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt.

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

This Easter, bring the whole family and your friends together to join us for a Cadbury Easter Egg hunt, inspired by Quentin Blake’s The Green Ship.

Seek out the postcards hidden in the garden to discover tales of nature adventures at Nymans. 

As you travel through the garden together use your imagination and take ideas from the plants and wildlife around you to create your own voyage.

When you’ve found lots of postcards, head to the finish to claim your Cadbury chocolate prize.

Our trail has a nature and adventure theme and with no set route you can spend as long, or as little, time as you wish hunting for the postcards. 

Sat 4 Apr - Sun 19 Apr, 10.30am - 4pm. £3 per hunt, normal admission applies
