Our Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts will be taking place over the Easter holiday weekend again this year. Running on 25 – 28 March from 11am – 4pm.
We can’t wait to see you all this Spring. The flowers are starting to bloom, the car parking team are ready in their hi-vis vests and the chocolate is stocked up in a super-secret and secure location.
Families who complete their hunt here at Charlecote, between Good Friday and Easter Monday, will be rewarded with a delicious Cadbury chocolate treat at the end. What’s more, you’ll be able to enjoy your treat knowing that every single Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt is support our work* right here at Charlecote.
Normal admission applies – a grounds ticket is all that’s needed to join the Easter fun – plus £2.50 per hunt map.
*Each and every visit to a National Trust place helps support the charity’s work caring for special places for future generations. Every penny raised from the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts goes into looking after National Trust properties. Cadbury receives no money from supporting the Easter Egg Hunts.
Our local Warwickshire Schools are off from 19 March – 3 April so during these times we’ll be having some additional things happening for families looking for a fun filled day out.
Our event marquee will be a hub with the following activities…
- Over the week leading up to 25 March you can make your own colourful Easter card.
- Wheat weaving drop-in activities on Sunday 20 March from 11 – 1 and 2 – 4pm.
- Sunflower seed sowing – (No. 41 on your 50 things… list – Plant it, Grow it, Eat it). From 11 – 2pm on Tuesday 22 and 29 March.
- Demonstrations by Solihull Embroiderers’ Guild on Thursday 24 March and Saturday 2 April.
- Charlecote honey tasting on Sunday 3 April, 11am-4pm.
An activity we’re really looking forward to is a Rag Rugging Workshop with Deborah Hastings on Thursday 31 March. Deborah provides our Servants’ Hall shop with Rag Rugging kits – and they are very popular. Between 11am – 3pm on this date, Deborah will be hosting a drop in session where you can come and make a delightful little owl or squirrel or even a spring flower themed corsage.

Aside from workshops and trails, there is always lots to explore and discover for families in the park, outbuildings and kitchen. Don’t forget your 50 Things… scrapbooks as you can tick off a number of activities at Charlecote.
Our House* will be open to view as if you are guests invited by George and Mary Elizabeth – the Victorian owners of Charlecote Park. Stroll around the rooms and discover who lived here and what treasures they collected. For younger visitors, see if you can find our cuddly critters who just love playing hide and seek around the grand rooms.
*The House is closed on Wednesdays to allow our busy team of House Elves to carry out their conservation work, although you might just get a peek if you join a Hidden Charlecote tour with one of our knowledgeable guides. Ask at reception on your way in.
