We are back at HIghclere Castle, the home of Downton Abbey, for their annual Easter Trail! Join us on 16th April and follow the clues through Highclere’s gardens and woodland. At the end, each child will win a chocolate Easter Egg!
We would very much welcome children to take part in our Easter Bonnet parade, please do bring your creations along with you. We hope that the children enjoy the bouncy slide (may be subject to an additional charge) and meeting some of our farm animals. There may even be a chance to spot the Easter Bunny and meet some very special Disney Princesses!
We ask you to kindly pre-book adult tickets and confirm how many children you are bringing so that we can ensure every child receives an easter egg once they have completed the trail. The adult garden ticket is £10 per person which gives access to the Easter Egg Trail, Gardens and Grounds, Tea Rooms and Gift Shop. Please note, this ticket does not include access to either the Castle or the Egypt Exhibition. We ask that a donation be given on behalf of each child to our chosen charity on the day (suggested donation £5) when they collect their map for the Easter Trail on arrival.
Highclere Castle is proud to support the ‘Murray Parish Trust’ as our chosen charity. This is such a fantastic charity which supports children’s emergency services across the South of England by raising money and awareness to support projects at key trauma centres, to enable pioneering research and provide life-saving equipment. – Lady Carnarvon, Highclere Castle
