Hunt 21.5 tonnes of Cadbury Eggheads At The National Trust This Easter!

Over a quarter of a million Cadbury Eggheads are being delivered to National Trust properties ahead of the annual Cadbury Eggsplorers Easter Egg Trails, a fabulous Easter egg hunt for kids, taking place over 3rd-6th April.

National Trust staff have taken delivery of 21.5 tonnes of chocolate eggs for the event.

With thousands of eggs to store, staff have been getting creative about where to conceal the eggs so no one finds them before Easter.

Temporary locations include inside of grandfather clocks, pianos, vases and bookcases.

The 250,000+ Eggheads are now ready and waiting for our kids (and us!!!) to unleash their inner explorer at these adventurous trails taking place across the country.

Now in its eighth year, over 300 properties are taking part and with 680,000 people getting involved last year, the National Trust is expecting a huge turnout, especially if the sun makes an appearance!

Every trail will start at base camp where kids will receive their Eggsplorer Trail Journal, their Eggsplorer trail map and clues to help them stay on track.

At the end of the trail, each Eggsplorer will receive a Cadbury’s Egghead.

The trail costs £2 per Eggsplorer on top of the usual admission fee and I’d advise you to check the opening times of your chosen trail before you set off.

Our nearest is at beautiful Dyffryn Gardens in the Vale of Glamorgan.

It’s an easter egg hunt that will give the kids some fun whilst protecting some of the most beautiful historic sites in Britain.
