Chatsworth: Spring animals, egg hunts and an Eggspress trailer ride

Chatsworth is celebrating Easter with egg hunts, Eggspress trailer rides, craft activities - and a new Easter explorer map.

Hundreds of Easter eggs will be uncovered throughout Easter Bank Holiday weekend with egg hunts taking place several times a day in fields adjoining the farmyard.

In the garden, there will be a menagerie of animals, with a new trail featuring life sized willow and wicker animal sculptures, created by local artists and including a 1.5 metre tall deer, badgers, chickens, rabbits and lambs.

Families are invited to find the spring-themed animals hidden around the 105-acre garden with the new Explorer Map. Taking place daily, the trail is available at entrance points and included with admission.

Visitors can also take a ride on the Easter Eggspress trailer through the park to the Golden Gates and back, for £3 per person. Easter crafts will be held in the top yard daily.

Wentworth Easter fun

Fairground rides, delicious food, a meet and greet with the Easter Bunny and friends, pony rides and more than 120 stalls are on the menu at Wentworth Woodhouse this weekend.

The grand stately home is throwing its doors open for a springtime celebration – two days of Easter family fun.

Handmade gifts and crafts, freshly made food - including pizzas, burgers, crepes and ice cream - beers and cocktails will all be available inside the house and outside on the large front lawn this Sunday and Monday.

You can also book an afternoon tea to be served within the house itself for those who fancy a real treat.
