VISITORS to Sudeley Castle can enjoy the perfect spring day out while taking part in a host of seasonal activities this Easter holiday.

From this weekend until April 28, search the castle rooms to find Easter chicks hidden around the inside of the castle.

Between April 13 and 22, a giant Easter egg trail will lead visitors around the castle’s beautiful gardens. Additionally, for the Easter weekend itself (Bank holiday Friday to Monday), egg-citing Easter crafts will be available all day for younger visitors.

Surrounded by striking views of the Cotswold Hills, Sudeley Castle’s 10 award-winning gardens are full of spring colour at this time of year. From the tranquillity of the Knot Garden or the magnificence and grandeur of the Queens’ Garden, there is a vast array of flowers, shrubs, trees and herbs to delight the senses.

Sudeley’s general manager, Wendy Walton, said: “Spring is such a wonderful time of year at Sudeley Castle – our stunning gardens come to life and are awash with colour thanks to our beautiful tulips, daffodils and other spring flowers in full bloom."

“Our fun Easter activities are sure to keep the whole family entertained, and our fascinating new exhibition tells the 1,000-year story of Sudeley’s history."
