Details

CANCELLED - April is an ideal time to visit Pensthorpe, during the Easter school holidays, where your little eggsplorers and adventurers can follow an eggciting wildlife-inspired treasure hunt around the reserve. Get stuck into our Easter-themed craft activity where you can make your own ‘paper plate bunny face’ to take home – suitable for children of all ages, including toddlers with accompanying parents or grandparents who fancy helping out and having a go at being creative as a family.

A ‘build your own sock bunny’ craft activity will also be available (for a small extra charge) for those wanting to get hands-on and make something a little bit extra special and unique.

Each day we will also be hiding ONE golden egg which, in order to find, you will need to work together as a family to track it down. It could be absolutely anywhere on our park and whoever finds it will need to bring it back to our shop to claim an eggclusive prize! The golden egg will be hidden in a different top-secret location every day.

To uncover Pensthorpe’s history and wildlife secrets, and to explore the further reaches of our reserve (not accessible by foot) book a place on the Pensthorpe Explorer tour*, an ‘off-road’ adventure teaching you about habitats, the history of our estate and the diverse wildlife that lives here.

So, with Spring in the air, what better time to hop over and see us!
