DESCRIPTION

This Easter join two weeks of Alice in Wonderland family fun at “the loveliest castle in the world”. With trails across the grounds for children, Mad Hatter’s tea parties and croquet on the lawn with the Queen of Hearts, there are lots of reasons to visit again and again with your annual ticket!Easter Quest
From 25th March to 10th April, there will be Easter activities for all ages including an Alice in Wonderland themed Easter Quest across the estate for children. Hand in your completed trail card to receive a small chocolate prize. An additional charge of £1 per child applies.
Easter Through the Looking Glass
From the 25th to 28th March, there will be even more going on across the bank holiday weekend. Meet Alice and her friends as they pop up across the grounds of the Castle during your day. At 11am each day, children can join in the hunt for the White Rabbit in the Woodland Walk.
Lookout for the Caterpillar sitting on his shiny red mushroom although you will most likely hear him first, he does like to attract attention! Say hello to Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, who will be wandering around being infuriating, ridiculous and occasionally performing spontaneous tap dance routines.
At 1.30pm daily in the Fairfax Courtyard, an interactive pop-up tea party will take place. Join the chaos with the Mad Hatter, March Hare, Alice and the Dormouse as they chase their table, which has a habit of getting bored and running away! If they ever catch the table there will be invisible tea and riddles for the audience to join in with.
Her Majesty the Queen of Hearts will be inviting visitors to join in her royal game of croquet near the Maze at 3pm daily. Prepare for loud, colourful fun as the Queen, her entourage and Alice play croquet enlisting members of the audience as both hoops and hedgehogs.
