Children taking part in an Easter hunt

Easter Events 2017

Be a challenge champion this Easter weekend! You'll be greeted by a character from the past - perhaps a king, a butler or a Roman centurion - who'll be able to help you crack the clues as you explore historic sites. There's a chocolate reward for successful adventurers, so be sure to join in the fun.
