Easter fun at the Follies takes kids back to nature

A traditional Easter egg hunt takes an adventurous turn at HawkstonePark Follies as families are invited to follow a trail through the ancient woodlands, deep caves and series of extraordinary monuments that make up Shropshire’s historic land of myth and magic.

Children must keep their eyes peeled for the Easter bunny’s eggs as they tiptoe over the Swiss Bridge, climb to the top of The Monument and explore the caves and passages of The Grotto. At its highest peak, the Grade I listed landscape offers unspoilt views over the Shropshire and Cheshire plains to the distant Welsh mountains beyond.

Egg hunts will be taking place over the Easter weekendfrom Friday 18th to Monday 21st April and each child who completes the trail will get a selection of chocolate treats to take home. There will also be den building activities taking place, and Caspian’s Tea Room will be open selling teas, coffees, cakes and sandwiches.

The park is open from 10am to 5pm five days a week throughout April and May (closed Tues/Weds) and seven days a week throughout June, July and August (last admission 3pm on the gate). Tickets are priced adult £7.25; child £4.75; concession £6.25. Family tickets are £23.00 (2 adults + 2 children) and £26.00 (2 adults + 3 children). Easter egg hunts are an additional £1.50.
