Have fun with us at Sheringham Park this Easter

A family enjoying the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

Drop in any-day over the holidays to take part in one of our Easter trails (the Easter bunny has provided you with a choice of two) to win a yummy prize, or discover what wildlife can be seen this spring with one of our guided family events.

Cadbury Egg Hunt

Saturday 1 to Monday 17 April, 10am – 4.15pm (10am - 5.15pm during Easter weekend)

Bunny has been hopping through Sheringham Park and found so much to do that a choice of two trails have been provided to lead you to a yummy Cadbury Easter treat. This year, we've added an extra hour for you to visit during the Easter weekend. Why not come later and miss the crowds? All trails £2.50.

Trail one: Firecrest Trail

Named after the UK’s smallest bird, this trail is a buggy and wheelchair friendly route. Search for clues amongst the flowering camellias, pierises and early rhododendrons to lead you towards your chocolate prize.

Look out for a tiny firecrest which may be spotted in the wild garden.

Trail two: Buzzard Trail

For the more adventurous, this undulating trail will take you to the wilder areas of Sheringham Park. Birdsong and maybe the call of a soaring buzzard will accompany your search for clues amongst the towering trees on this approximately 1 ½ mile route, as you navigate your way to a chocolate prize.

Listen out for the mewing call of the buzzard soaring high above you
