National Trust Easter Egg Hunt 3

We can’t quite believe it is Easter already, whatever you are doing have a wonderful time and don’t forget to send us a postcard if you are travelling.

The National Trust dropped us a line about their Easter Egg Hunts, so if you’re staying local, or holidaying in the UK and haven’t planned your Easter Egg Hunt, check them out.

Over a quarter of a million Cadbury Eggheads are being delivered to National Trust properties ahead of the annual Cadbury Eggsplorers Easter Egg Trails taking place over 3rd-6th April.

We’ve been checking ours out. Penny’s local National Trust place hosting an Easter Egg Hunt is Calke Abbey, Derbyshire; Katie’s is Anglesey Abbey Gardens and Lode Mill, confusingly in Lode, not Anglesey; Helen’s is Ashridge Hertfordshire and Alison’s is Red House, Bexleyheath.


National Trust staff have taken delivery of 21.5 tonnes of chocolate eggs for the event. With thousands of eggs to store, staff have been getting creative about where to conceal the eggs so no one finds them before Easter. Temporary locations include inside of grandfather clocks, pianos, vases and bookcases.

C18th Georgian country estate, Osterley Park & House, benefits from secret doorways and passages to help hide its Cadbury’s Eggheads ahead of the Easter weekend.

The 250,000+ Eggheads are now ready and waiting for families to unleash their inner explorer at these adventurous trails taking place across the country. Now in its eighth year, over 300 properties are taking part and with 680,000 people getting involved last year, the National Trust is expecting a huge turnout, especially if the sun makes an appearance!
