Easter adventures at Powis Castle and Garden

Get ready to explore the self-led, family trail which meanders though the world famous garden from the 23 March - 5 April.

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

Hop, skip and jump along the trail and discover the fun, interactive activities along the way.

Collect your bunny ears and trail sheet from our friendly team and have a go at each activity, there's something for everyone to enjoy.

Learn about wildlife and nature, from ladybird lifecycles, to frogspawn and bird watching. Help the bees collect the pollen by throwing the balls into the net and test your speed and balance in the egg and spoon race.

Once you've completed the trail, collect your chocolate or vegan and Free From egg (made using Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa) from our friendly team in the garden café - and remember to get your trail sheet stamped too.

After all that adventuring, rest those tired legs and take a seat in the courtyard café. Enjoy a delicious range of hot and cold food, bakes, cakes and homemade scones. There’s something for all appetites as we offer children’s menu too alongside a range of gluten free meals and snacks.
