Enjoy Easter at Shugborough

Children playing in the daffodils at Shugborough

We’ve got plenty of Easter activities on over the holidays to get everyone outside and exploring nature. From tree climbing to trails, and finding your favourite ‘50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾’ activity, we have lots to keep you and your family busy.

The Big Tree Climb

Have a go at tree climbing to tick off number one of your 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾. The Great Big Tree Climbing Company will be on hand beside the mansion to help you safely enjoy your tree climb. This is a bookable event running on specific dates over Easter. Please note that normal admission fees still apply.

Adventurous Trails

See if you can complete all of the trails that we have on offer this Easter, which will take your exploring all over the Estate. We have a trail to suite all ages and abilities. Visit Visitor Reception to pick up your trails, trails prices apply.

New Blooms and New Life!

This is the perfect season to see if you can spot the abundance of colours from the flowers that are springing up across the Parkland. Can you spot the sea of yellow daffodils by the river? Some of our animals will be ready to give birth during the spring. Visit us later in the Easter half term and see if you are lucky enough to spot new life on the farm.
