Easter holidays at Tredegar House

A family investigating the flora in the gardens

Now that spring is in the air and daffodils are adorning the parkland we can look forward to what Tredegar House has in store for the Easter holidays.

Wake up with Tredegar House

After a sleepy winter Tredegar House is springing into to life.

Mini-beasts, bees and butterflies are taking to the skies, while fledglings are taking their first steps from their nests and hedgehogs and grass snakes are re-emerging after months of hibernation.

Gather the family, pick up an I spy sheet and adventure through the gardens to see how many springtime plants, flowers and animals you can spot.

Step through the front doors of the house and discover what it takes to spring clean a home as big as Lord and Lady Tredegar’s.
