Easter activities in Berkshire

easter egg hunts in berkshire

Don’t believe everything you see on the television. Winter is not here. In fact, the beautiful world around us is waking up after winter’s long sleep. There’s no better way to celebrate than by visiting one of many Easter activities this weekend.

Below, we’ve listed some of the finest Easter Egg hunts in Berkshire. If you have a sweet tooth, why not burn some calories while eating chocolate as you explore the stunning local landscapes? It’s the perfect excuse.

Basildon Park, Reading

Choose from two trails (£3 each) and collect a delicious Cadbury prize for your troubles. Toddlers can follow the Ranger’s dog Buddy on an adventure around the parkland, while older children can witness a day in the life of Leo the Ranger. In partnership with Cadbury, they’ll be treats to collect, or a chocolate alternative (if inclined).

Cliveden, Maidenhead

Partnered with Cadbury (naturally), Cliveden’s Easter Egg Hunt takes place around the stunning Cliveden National Trust estate. The trail is on every day until Monday 22 April (10.30am – 3.30pm), including the Easter weekend (it might get rather busy). Clues along the trail will lead to a Cadbury chocolate prize at the end. Trails cost £3 per child (includes the Cadbury prize) plus usual estate admission.

Bucklebury Farm, Reading

The search for giant Easter eggs is on, with the bonus of a few other Spring activities including lamb feeding, where park guests can help feed the orphan lambs. What more could you ask for?

Norden Farm Centre for the Arts, Maidenhead

Norden Farm Centre is hosting a fun-packed fortnight of new experiences for children this Easter, including family-friendly shows, films and activity clubs, as well as daily craft and storytelling. They also have chocolate egg decorating (it would be rude not to).

Royal Windsor Racecourse, Windsor

It’s been a long Easter for some, but the holidays aren’t ready to fizzle out just yet. At Royal Windsor Racecourse, enjoy creative fun and activities for their first ever family Easter Eggs-travaganza Race day. They’ll be the chance to take home some prizes from the Easter egg hunt, and children can have their faces painted or dispose of all that sugar-induced energy on the bouncy castles.

Oakley Court, Windsor

That sneaky little Easter Bunny has hidden clues across the hotel and its grounds. Oakley Court needs you and your family to solve the puzzle. If you manage to solve the missing word – you’ve guessed it – a delightful sweet treat will be waiting.

Highclere Castle, Newbury

Highclere Castle invites you to hop along to the home of Downton Abbey for their Easter Egg Trail and Easter Bonnet Parade in aid of The Murray Parish Trust. It’s going to be a hot weekend (we hope), which should allow for a bouncy castle and other games on the lawns. Not to mention the perfect excuse to scoff lots of eggs before they melt.
