Have fun with us at Sheringham Park this Easter

A family enjoying the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

Due to the current situation with Coronavirus we are regrettably cancelling all Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts and Easter family activities at our places. We’re pleased to say that Cadbury will be working with us to centrally coordinate redistribution of the chocolate eggs to agreed charities to share some goodwill at a time of crisis.

National Trust & Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt - cancelled

Daily between 2nd April to 19th April, 10am – 4.15pm

Bring the whole family together this Easter with our two Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts. The Firecrest trail is a buggy and wheelchair friendly route which leads you amongst the flowering camellias and early rhododendrons of the wild garden. For the adventurers amongst you, the Buzzard trail will take you on undulating paths to the wilder areas of the park. Spot the first signs of spring at Sheringham Park, solve the clues and finish your adventure with a chocolate treat from Cadbury.

We expect the Easter weekend to be very busy, if you would like a more relaxed experiance, try and visit after the bank holiday Monday until the 19th April, or later on in the day.

All trails £2.50.

Trail one: The 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.

Trail two: The 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.
