Whether you’re looking to rekindle the childhood nostalgia of Easter, or taking the children to make their own memories as champion eggs-plorers, we’ve compiled some of our favourite family-friendly Easter egg hunts in Shropshire.

Dragon Egg Hunt at Hawkstone Park Follies

Have you ever seen a dragon egg? You might soon be in luck. Legend has it that a rare collection has been spotted in Dragon Woods, but the naughty woodland fairies have been up to no good again and hidden them all around the Follies. The wardens need your help to find them all before they hatch.


The Really Wild Egg Trial at Chester Zoo

A trail like no other. The zookeepers at Chester Zoo have hidden six giant animal eggs around the park – will you spot them? From a big bellied seahorse, to a Komodo dragon, you’ll learn about some of the unusual animals that start their lives in an egg.


National Trust Easter Egg Hunt

Take an unforgettable adventure at one of the National Trust sites across Shropshire this Easter. From ‘be a bird’ egg trails at Powis Castle to joining the Hive Mind at Attingham Park – there is lots to get involved in and celebrate the spring holiday season.

Easter at West Midland Safari Park

Join Bramble the Bunny at West Midlands Safari Park to help celebrate the park’s 50th birthday. With Bramble Bunny’s Birthday Bash, a scratch card trail for the little egg-splorers, and a Easter makeover on the Discovery Trail – there is lots to get involved in.
