Easter at The Weir Garden

Easter is a rather special time at The Weir as the garden fills with blossom and birdsong . Why not celebrate Easter here with us with a Cadburys Easter trail and nature walk?

Once again we are joined by Cadburys for a fun trail with a chocolatey surprise at the end. Come along over the bank holiday weekend and have fun completing our 'Wind in the Willows' trail. 

Focusing on the spring wildlife in the garden and linking it to the nostalgic story written by Kenneth Grahame, complete the trail and visit the Easter bunny in her magical burrow to collect your prize. Trails are £2.50 which includes a Cadbury chocolate Easter egg at the end. Please remember before your visit that we are a cash-only property with no card facilities on site so you will need to bring change with you if you'd like to take part in one of our trails.

We will also have a 'Busy bee' trail running either side of the Easter bank holiday. Find out everything you need to know about the amazing world of bees and win a prize at the end. Trail sheets are £2.50 and can be collected from Visitor Reception. Don't forget to try out some '50 things' activities with your little ones too, there's plenty of activities on this sheet which can be done again and again, spending quality time together as a family, discovering nature together.

Finally, whilst exploring the gardens keep your eyes peeled for snake's head fritillary and fruit blossom. You'll be able to smell the wild garlic before you see it and don't forget to stop off at the bird hide to see how many different bird varities you can spot. There’s plenty to do this Easter at The Weir Garden. Why not join us to celebrate nature and new life and make new memories with loved ones whilst helping us protect this special place?
