Our Easter Weekend of Fun

Posted 6th April 2017

There’s an Easter basketful of fun events and family activities for visitors over the Bank Holiday weekend from 14th-17th April! 

As well as our first ever giant egg hunt – featuring a collection of 8ft coloured inflatable eggs – the Pleasure Gardens will be play host to everything from a Victorian funfair and circus workshops to Easter Bunny walkabouts and archery. Children can also enjoy Punch and Judy Shows, storytelling on the lawn, face painting in the Lavender Garden, balloon modelling and a bouncy castle.

Visitors will be invited to spot a series of Giant Easter Eggs hidden in and around the Pleasure Gardens and Formal Gardens. Everyone who correctly guesses the total number of eggs will be able to collect a special treat from the Easter Tent in the Pleasure Gardens, plus be in with the chance to win a giant Easter bunny.

The Pleasure Gardens are also home to the Adventure Play Area, Butterfly House and Marlborough Maze: keep an eye out for stilt walkers and circus clowns as you explore!

Our UNESCO World Heritage Site features more than 2000 acres of beautifully landscaped Park and Gardens. Visitors can discover the delights of the Formal Gardens with the serene Water Terraces, the Secret Garden, the Rose Garden and The Duke’s Italian Garden. 

Take a springtime stroll through the ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped Parkland and spot some wildlife or enjoy a picnic in sublime surroundings, taking in our famous landmarks like the Grand Bridge, the Column of Victory and the Temple of Diana, where Sir Winston Churchill proposed to his future wife, Clementine Hozier.
