Morden Hall Park
There’s lots to see and do at Morden Hall Park but this Easter your eggsplorer skills will be put to the test as you help our wildlife find all of the things they have lost during the winter. Join in the fun whatever the weather with trails and games for all ages. To top it all off each Eggsplorer trail is finished with a yummy Cadbury Egghead.
Eggsplore our spring gardens as you hunt for a chocolate egg prize at Ham. On the way, you’ll discover the cherry garden’s archway tunnels, the maze-like Wilderness, a very large fruit and vegetable plot and a place where you can build your very own den. Ham House and Garden is located along the beautiful rural River Thames close to Richmond, so why not escape from the city over the Easter weekend?
200 years ago there were eggs-a-plenty surrounding the grand Robert Adam designed mansion house at Osterley as the farmland stretched for miles around. Today the park and gardens remain a green retreat a short bunny hop from urban London, and the eggs have returned, but this time they’re Cadbury Eggheads! Explore our glorious gardens where you can spot flowers and wildlife, or have fun on rope swings and build a den at our play trail as you try and crack the clues on your own Easter adventure.
A garden for all seasons
Steeped in nearly 300 years of history, this 18th-century garden for all seasons is a green oasis in the heart of Surrey within easy reach of London. Once a Dukes’ retreat and a playground for princesses, Claremont has always been somewhere to escape everyday life and enjoy simple pleasures with family and friends.
Follow in the footsteps of dukes and princesses as you hunt around the pleasure garden for the clues in our traditional Easter Egg Trail. Spot them all and claim your Cadbury chocolate Egghead.
Escape the London crowds and get lost in the garden. To complete the trail you’ll explore the rose garden, orchard and intimate garden rooms. While you hunt perhaps you can help reunite the lost chicks with their mother hens – if you do you’ll be rewarded with a Cadbury chocolate Egghead.
Tudor house surviving in the heart of a thriving East London community.
