    Easter Egg Hunt at Nostell.

    Built on the site of a medieval priory, the National Trust’s Nostell landmark is a Palladian house set in acres of stunning gardens – making it the perfect place for an Easter egg hunt!

    As you make your way along the hunt’s trail, you’ll discover a series of nature-inspired activities for the whole family. It’s all about playing in the garden this Easter, so expect the likes of welly-wanging, egg and spoon racing and hopscotch to figure prominently!
