Go exploring on a Giant Egg Hunt at the RHS Gardens this Easter

Enjoy a supersized family adventure at the five Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Gardens this Easter, as dozens of larger-than-life handpainted eggs await discovery on the Giant Egg Hunt (1 – 24 April).

Explorers of all ages can follow clues and solve puzzles to complete the trail at RHS Garden Bridgewater, Salford; RHS Harlow Carr, North Yorkshire; RHS Hyde Hall, Essex; RHS Rosemoor, North Devon; and RHS Wisley, Surrey.

Every child who successfully finds all of the hidden eggs will be rewarded with a free chocolate treat from PLAYin CHOC to take home. This delicious chocolate is free from the top allergens, organic, vegan-friendly and ethically made in here in the UK.

Additional activities on offer throughout the Easter holidays include storytelling sessions, arts and crafts workshops, family-friendly planting and perhaps even a chance to meet the Easter Bunny. Dates, times and activities vary per garden, please see below and check the website for details:
