Easter Egg Trail. 6th April 2024

Highclere Castle’s Easter Egg Trail

Saturday 6th April 2024

Please join us on Saturday 6th April where we hope you will enjoy following a trail through Highclere’s gardens and woodland, finding clues en route. 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.

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 each child to give a donation 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 for this event. 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.

Our Easter Bonnet Parade will take place at 12:30pm and is free to enter with prizes awarded for the most wonderful bonnets.

The Easter Egg Trail will run from
10:00am until 2.30pm

The Easter Bonnet Parade will take place at 12.30pm
The event will end at 4:00pm
The Grounds close at 5:00pm


Our "Picnic Afternoon Tea for Two" is not available with this event ticket. However, our normal Tea Rooms will be open from 9:30am until 5pm, serving light lunches, snacks, cake, scones and tasty Easter treats.
