Take part in a National Trust Easter trail during your holiday

Easter adventures with the National Trust’s Easter egg trails

Easter will be celebrated at a number of National Trust properties across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, with many offering Easter egg trails for children and their families during the school holidays. 

Children can don bunny ears and explore mazes and meadows, kitchen gardens and orchards, parkland and woodland. Every trail has a different theme, with challenges to complete – successful participants will be rewarded with a chocolate egg (vegan option available). Trails cost £3 per child, on top of normal admission prices.

There are lots of National Trust venues close to Club campsites. Here are just a few examples that you might like to visit.
