Easter holidays at Sudeley Castle

Spend time with nature this Easter holiday.

“NestFest” Egg Hunt

Learn more about our native birdlife this Easter at Sudeley Castle with our ‘NestFest’ Egg Hunt! Collect the NestFest sticker sheet when you arrive then explore the castle gardens to find 6 giant eggs and the birds they belong to! Match the eggs with the nests as you go, and don’t forget to collect your Easter treat when you’ve finished.

Nature-based crafts with Dig & Delve
