The UK-based annual egg hunt is back in full swing for an Easter eggstravaganza.

If you are in the UK this Easter the National Trust and Cadbury have come together again to organise the great nationwide egg hunt where more than 250 different national trust properties across England, Wales and Northern Ireland hide chocolate treats and organise family games to celebrate Easter.

Eggciting Endeavour

This ultimate day out is sure to spark your child’s imagination as they hunt along nature trails, power through muddy woodlands and explore around tranquil lakes on the quest to find as many eggs as they can. The chocolate treats will be hidden in the surroundings of some of the National Trust’s most recognisable estates, parks and properties such as the Quarry Bank in Styal and Dunham Massey in Altrincham. Participants will be given information in the form of challenges, questions and clues so they can solve the mystery of where the eggs are hiding. Spice up the event by forming alliances or competitions between families. Teams can also opt to create a theme, such as fairies or wild creatures and dress up for the day. At the end of each completed hunt, everyone will receive a special Cadbury treat as a reward.

Eggcellent Benefits

Youngsters can enjoy face painting and craft activities, and parents can also get involved in the family-oriented games on offer – all Easter themed, of course. When you take part in the hunt, you’re assisting Cadbury to fund crucial preservation work that aims to protect historic buildings so that future generations can join in on the fun. The event is a double treat - you get to satisfy all your chocolate cravings and lend a helping hand to the UK community too.

Alternatively, you could join Peter Rabbit and his gang of furry friends to celebrate Easter at Kew's beautiful botanical gardens. This Beatrix Potter extravaganza includes trips to Mr. McGregor's shed to see how he grows his plants, DIY bunny-ear workshops, storytelling sessions, and Peter Rabbit fancy dress. But it's not just for kids – adults can join in with monster veggie-growing class, explore Kew's kitchen garden, and admire the dazzling springtime blooms. All included in the standard Kew Gardens admission price.
