Easter days out at Osterley
Join us at Osterley this Easter for lots of family activities, from Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts to 'hide and seek' trails in the House, not forgetting Family Gardening Club, Craft Cart and ticking some '50 Things' off your list
Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts
Bunny's been up his usual tricks again, hiding eggs around Osterley's formal gardens. But this year we've noticed something odd... a little different... well, it's just that this year they're big eggs - and we mean really BIG eggs! And given the fact we've heard dinosaurs have been spotted in the area recently means we're wondering if Bunny has left us a not-so-usual Easter Egg Hunt this year. Will you come and help us work out what these eggs are?
Running from Saturday 1 April - Monday 17 April, 10am - 5pm. Last entry to the gardens is 4.30pm. Normal admission applies, National Trust members and under 5's go free. Easter Egg Hunts £3 including a delicious Cadbury chocolate treat, available whilst stocks last. Please note the trail goes around the formal gardens and does not include access to the play trail.
Bunny 'hide and seek' trail
In the House we've also noticed something peculiar. We've found little dinosaurs and eggs appearing in amongst all the Easter bunnies and we're not sure how they got there! We need to know how many there are so we can keep an eye on numbers - can you help us find them all?
Running from Saturday 1 April - Monday 17 April, 11am - 5pm. Last entry to the house is 4pm. Normal admission applies, National Trust members and under 5's go free. House trail is free with a small chocolate prize at the end, available whilst stocks last.
Family Gardening Club
Bring the family and your green fingers, getting hands on with planting in the Little Veg Garden. We'll be planting up the beds with lots of seeds for the year and harvesting the last of the winter rhubarb, oh, and you can tick no. 41, Plant it, grow it, eat it off your 50 Things list too!
Friday 7 April, 11am – 3pm in the Little Veg Garden. Normal admission applies, National Trust members and under 5's go free.
On Thursday 6 and Thursday 13 April we'll be getting creative with craft activities, perfect to keep those little fingers busy in the school holidays. With a different Osterley theme every Thursday of the school holidays, why not become a craft cart regular?
Thursday 6 & 13 April, 12 – 4pm. Free.
