The Scotney Castle Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

Families enjoying the outdoors during Spring

This spring join us at Scotney Castle for a Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt. The Hussey family children who lived at Scotney Castle in the late 19th Century kept diaries about the fun that they had in the grounds. Re-live their adventures as you take part in our bird egg hunt in the garden. Find all of our bird nests, collect all the clues and work out the answer to claim your Cadbury chocolate prize.

This Easter take on a Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt at Scotney Castle and earn a Cadbury chocolate prize.

If you are feeling a bit more adventurous you can venture out to our wilderness camp. Collect a map from visitor reception and follow our play trail to find our created area for den building. You can create your own den from the materials we have provided or you can use the environment around you to find more if you need it.

If you are looking for something to do inside, then the house will be open as normal. Entry to the house is by timed ticket and you can collect these from visitor reception when you arrive. Easter can be a really busy time for us, so house tickets may sell out early. We recommend that you enjoy all that our outdoor areas have to offer and then visit again at a quieter time if you would like to experience the house as well.
