Easter egg hunts at Calke Abbey

This spring, treat the whole family to a world of adventure at Calke Abbey on an Easter trail.

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

Make your way along the trail and find ten nature-inspired activities for the whole family.

The trail takes place between 23 March – 7 April from 10am – 4.30pm, with last entry at 4pm, so come along and explore the beautiful parkland and Pleasure Grounds of Calke Abbey.

There's a choice of two main trails to pick from:

- The long trail takes you around the parkland and Calke Explore.

- The shorter, accessible trail is suitable for little legs, exploring the Pleasure Grounds and stableyards.

- For those looking for a bigger adventure, there's also the option of an orienteering trail.

Prices are £3 per trail which includes an Easter trail sheet, bunny ears, and don't forget, you can choose from either a chocolate egg or a vegan and Free From* chocolate egg. Both eggs are made using Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa. Find out more at www.ra.org.

*Suitable for people with milk, egg, gluten, peanut and tree nut allergies.

Please note that normal admission prices also apply.
