Easter Egg Trail – Hanbury Hall

This morning I looked at the dreary weather and wondered if I had made the right decision planning an Easter egg trail today! It was a damp dreary morning and not the best for ploughing round gardens looking for clues in a treasure hunt but still, we got togged up and off we went.


I am so glad we did.

We had a lovely morning and Little Man had a great time, especially jumping in the rather large muddy puddles!


We are National Trust members and visit Hanbury Hall in particular regularly so when I noticed on their Twitter page that they were holding an Easter egg trail I thought it would be a great activity to do with Little Man. The trail was well organised and great for kids. There were Easter related activities to take part in and then the trail which cost a very reasonable £3. We were given a map and a pencil and off we went to find our clues.


Obviously Little Man is too young to read the clues himself but as long as we steered him in the right direction he could find the next clue with ease. The trail took us all around the gardens and to areas we didn’t know existed so it was a great way to see all that Hanbury Hall has to offer.




At the end of the trail Little Man was given an Easter egg which he was super pleased with and (with a little help from Mummy & Daddy) had scoffed the lot before we even got back to the car.



The National Trust are holding these egg trails until Bank Holiday Monday so if you have time and a National Trust property near you then this is definitely an activity worth taking part in. You can find out more about Easter activities and other events here.

So there is not much left for me to add other than to say I hope you all have a lovely Easter break and get eating that chocolate as I wrote on Friday, I eat mine in the kitchen!

Happy Easter!

      I like that photo too. Even though he couldn’t read the clues he had a great time hunting and loved the egg at the end 😉 x
