Easter egg hunt in Durham #3: Raby Castle

Okay, so it's not specifically an Easter egg hunt, but it's similar and it's happening on Easter Bank Holiday weekend, so we're claiming it. Raby Castle is holding a free (with park entry) children's 'Where is my baby?' trail in the Walled Garden.

Search for the baby animal pictures and answer questions to claim your prize.

There are also Easter craft sessions in the greenhouse where children can make headdresses, Easter chicks and Easter baskets and chocolate lollipop making in the Coach Yard. Both activities are included in the price of a Park and Gardens ticket.
