Burton Agnes – Easter

Throughout the Easter holidays, Burton Agnes Hall will be hosting a jolly feast of activities for families to enjoy.

From 6th – 22nd April, children are invited to take part in an Easter trail around the wonderful gardens and grounds of the Hall, solving clues while exploring the extensive gardens. Once the trail puzzle has been solved, every child will receive an Easter treat.

On Easter Sunday and Monday, children can hunt for little chocolate Easter eggs hidden by the Easter Bunny in the Hall’s woodland, and even meet the bunny himself!

The gardens and grounds also offer a large yew tree maze (perfect for letting off steam), giant board games including chess, draughts, quoits, snakes and ladders and hop scotch, while the nature garden is a charming place to relax, perhaps with a coffee, and spot butterflies and bees emerging to enjoy the spring flowers.

The courtyard café will be open for visitors to enjoy homemade meals, light bites and indulgent treats. Meanwhile, the Gift Shop and Home & Garden Shop will be stocked with the new season’s gifts.

Simon Cunliffe-Lister, who lives at Burton Agnes, says: “Our five young children hugely look forward to the Easter egg hunt each year – they just love searching for chocolate Easter eggs through the woodland and chatting with the Easter bunny. We join so many others who make a family tradition of visting our home at Eastertime, enjoying the celebrations as much as we do.”
