Family fun at Hever Castle & Gardens throughout the Easter holidays promises to put a spring in your step.

Hunt for the colourful carrots and the Hever bunny in our fun free Easter trail or take part in an Easter egg hunt in the grounds. Each child will receive a chocolate for completing the trail and a mini chocolate egg for each Easter egg they find.

Take part in an Easter themed trail in the Castle to learn about creatures that hatch and create an egg shaped decoration to hang on our Easter tree in our free craft activity.

As well as the Easter themed activities, a visit to Hever Castle in spring offers a great chance to explore the stunning gardens. Visitors can enjoy a dazzling display of spring blooms from daffodils to hyacinths, camellias and early tulips.

Visitors aged 7-14 can explore the Tudor Towers adventure playground with its own moat, drawbridge and three turrets. It features three slides and two poles and lots of interactive elements including musical instruments, a maze and hidden boxes to find. Or the under 7s can enjoy the natural play area, Acorn Dell with its 2 metre high living willow structure, a giant sandpit, a mound with tunnels to clamber in and a climbing frame.

Or try not to get wet in the Water Maze or challenge yourself in the Yew Maze and see how long it takes you to find the way out. Then round off the day with seasonal home cooked food and mouth-watering cakes in the restaurant followed by a visit to the gift shop stocked with Easter goodies.
