Easter family fun at Osterley Park and House

Connect with nature at Osterley Park and House this Easter. With the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt in the gardens, Family Gardening Club in the Little Veg Garden and Craft Cart in the Stables Walled Garden there’s plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors.

Join the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

Osterley is home to a variety of birds, and this is the time of year when they are laying their eggs. Bring the whole family and explore the Great Meadow to find the wooden bird eggs. Then head to the Stables Walled Garden to collect your Cadbury’s chocolate prize. The Great Meadow can get muddy and doesn't have any paths, so make sure to wear weather appropriate shoes.

Running from Saturday 6 April – Monday 22 April, 10am-4pm. Last entry to the gardens is 4.30pm. Normal admission to the House and Garden applies, National Trust members and under 5's go free.
