Easter Family Activities

24th March - 15th April 10:00am - 4:00pm


This Easter Holiday, join us from 24th March onwards to take part in a full range of engaging Family Events.

The Easter Fun begins on Saturday 24th March with our Easter Egg Trail. Children can follow the clues to find our coloured eggs all around the Gardens, and when they’ve found them all, they can return to claim their chocolate prize from the Shop!

On Monday 26th March and Monday 2nd April (10:30am-3pm), there will be “Make-it Monday” sessions in the Undercroft of the Palace. Families can take part in an array of crafting activities including Easter-themed card-making, daffodil windmills, baby animal-themed masks and puppets and making use of spring flowers.

On Friday 30th March and Friday 6th April (11am-3pm), our Garden team will be holding “Nature Ninjas” sessions in the Community Garden, aimed at getting little ones engaged with nature and gardening. The team will have lots of horticulturally-based fun activities for all ages.

Storytelling in The Dragon’s Lair

Come and join us for some dragon-themed tales, and stories of the Bishops who’ve lived at the Palace in time gone by…

Tuesday 27th March at 12 noon

Wednesday 28th March at 2pm

Saturday 31st March at 2pm

Wednesday 4th April at 2pm




The 14 acres of Gardens will be open daily throughout the Easter Holidays and the Dragon’s Lair Play Area is the perfect place to exercise little legs – climb the Dragon’s Wings, explore the Tree Pods, crawl through the Dragon’s belly or pump the water to spill the bucket and send the Dragon to sleep – the choice is yours!

Don’t forget The Bishop’s Table Café on site which is open daily, serving child-friendly menus alongside lunches, cakes and hot drinks to refresh the grown ups too!

All activities are included in standard admission - pay at the Palace Shop on entry
