National Trust Easter Egg Hunts In East Anglia
Only one week left at school, which means it must nearly be time for Easter (and half the family’s birthdays) and with restrictions starting to ease (only slightly) you may be wondering what you can do with the children during the holidays.
The National Trust has some amazing properties and outdoor spaces to explore, and they are currently getting ready for their Easter Egg Hunts.
They will be taking place from 29th March and over the Easter bank holiday weekend for people to enjoy in their local area. To keep in line with government guidance, please stay local and support your nearest Easter egg hunt.
You don’t need to book your Easter trails, but you will need to book your Easter visit. To manage visitor numbers so that social distancing can be ensured for the safety of the staff, volunteers and visitors, the pre-booking system still applies.
There are quite a few in the East Anglia for you to choose from, although i’m guessing the Easter bank holiday will be popular this year, so booking your visit is recommended to guarantee entry. Please also note that the Easter trails will last for as long as stocks last, so book early to avoid disappointment.
