An Eggcellent Idea – National Trust Easter Egg trails


Easter brings out my inner child.  My voracious appetite for chocolate knows no bounds and my competitive streak shines through – traits that Little A has seemingly inherited as each morning begins with ‘when is the Easter Bunny coming?’.  I like to eke out Christmas to roughly about 2 weeks of festive fun so I am slightly applying the same theory to Easter and aside from church visits and our usual hunt around the garden on Easter Sunday I have been looking for other Easterish things to do to.  Luckily for us, Cadburys have been on the case and have delivered over a quarter of a million Cadbury Eggheads (that’s a lot of chocolate) to over 300 National Trust properties.  You can simply go to their website – click here – and enter in your postcode to find a trail near you. We are staying with the Gramps over Easter and when I entered in their fairly remote countryside postcode it popped up with 3 National Trust properties close enough to visit.  The event is spread over four days so the chances are the crowds will be nicely spread out – looks like we now have a plan for at least one day of the Easter Hols sorted.

Over 300 locations across the UK
Every trail begins at Base Camp where your child will receive their Eggsplorer Trail Journal which  includes a trail map and clues to help them on their way. After successfully completing the trail each Eggsplorer will be rewarded with a rather delicious Cadbury Egghead.
