Bertram Bunny’s Easter Adventure 2019
Apr 6 – Apr 22 all-day
Bertram Bunny’s Easter Adventure 2019

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Hop along to Borde Hill Garden for Bertram Bunny’s Easter Adventure

Spot the signs of spring whilst exploring the Garden on the daily Easter trail.  Hetty the Hen has surprisingly laid ten golden eggs, which Bertram Bunny has hidden from Felix the Fox before he eats them for his supper.  Find the golden eggs and solve some puzzles along the way to receive a delicious chocolate treat.

During the trail, challenge the family to a game of crazy golf, or an egg and spoon race on the lawn. Children can also let off steam in the new Adventure Playground, navigating their way through a series of exciting new equipment, including a thrilling zip wire for the most adventurous. It’s all the inspiration you need for a cracking day out!

There will be daily crafts for children to create an Easter-themed masterpiece to take home, with a small additional charge of £1 to cover the cost of materials.  Why not visit the Easter photo booth for a selfie with family and friends, perhaps showcasing some of the crafts you have made.  Enter our #bordehilleaster photo competition to win a family membership.

Fuel up for your adventures with a delicious Easter-themed treat from the Gardeners’ Retreat Café, or cool down with an ice-cream or drink from the new playground Coffee Cabin.

Spring is also a magical time to explore the Garden and Woodland, with an abundance of flowering magnolias, camellias, hellebores, daffodils and rhododendrons. Picnics and dogs on leads welcome.
