Easter days out at Winkworth Arboretum

Visitors on an Easter trail

Celebrate the great outdoors this Easter at Winkworth Arboretum with a host of activities for the whole family.

Easter is a very special time at Winkworth Arboretum, with nature waking up everywhere you look. Put on your adventurer's hat and explore 149 acres of woodland. 

Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt

Saturday 28 March – Monday 13 April 10.30am–4pm · Normal admission applies plus £3.50 
per trail.

Embark on a special adventure around the Arboretum following a rainbow of different coloured clues. There are two routes available, one around our Access For All walk and the other down to the boathouse and wetlands, ideal for a slightly more challenging walk. 

Return to the kiosk with your completed trail sheet to win a delicious prize. 

Please note our supply of Easter eggs is limited and we will only run the trail whilst stocks last. If we do run out then our Easter bunnies will work as fast as possible to restock supplies.

It's an egg-stra busy time

Easter is always a busy time here at Winkworth. We open at 10am and ask that you don't arrive before then, as the gates will be locked. 

We’re running Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts for the whole of the Easter holidays. Beat the rush with an early-bird visit before the bank holiday weekend.
