Easter at The Weir Garden

Easter is a rather special time at The Weir with the estate and gardens showing signs of new life. Why not celebrate Easter here with us with a Cadbury’s 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 Peter Rabbit trail.

Focusing on the spring wildlife in the garden, 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 ‘marvellous world of mini-beasts’ trail running either side of the Easter bank holiday. Find out everything you need to know about the amazing world of insects, bugs and beetles and win a prize at the end. Trail sheets are £2.50 and can be collected from Visitor Reception.

Whilst you’re here, take a wander in the garden. The birdsong is at full peak as the garden sounding a delicate spring chorus daily. Leaping lambs can be spotted around the surrounding fields and wildlife is making an appearance after a long winter’s nap. Keep an eye out for mini-beasts too, they’ll be making an appearance now the weather’s warmer.

For those with a sweet tooth, we will be joined by Classic Cakes Herefordshire on various dates over Easter.  What could possibly be nicer than relaxing in the garden with a hot cup of coffee and a great slab of homemade cake?

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.
