Hop to a Midlands tourist attraction to enjoy some bunny fun this Easter
Easter treats at award-winning Trentham Gardens include the chance for families to ‘Potter’ around a Peter Rabbit trail as well as enjoy time together with a scenic picnic in a private garden gazebo hired for the day.
With restrictions set to ease further from Monday, visitors will be able to hop along to Trentham, on the edge of Stoke-on-Trent, for a post-lockdown treat featuring a self-guided trail finding characters from Beatrix Potter’s best-loved tales.
Due to run until April 18, the Peter Rabbit trail, dotted around the Italian Gardens, will have clues to solve and visitors correctly spelling out the secret word will win a tasty treat.
Clue sheets can be picked up from the garden entrance and the trail will cost £2.50 per person, in addition to the normal garden admission.
Trentham’s gazebo hire is designed to offer visitors the opportunity to enjoy the gardens in their own bubble combined with the outdoor dining experience of bespoke picnics, whatever the weather throws at them.
Available from Monday, March 29, gazebos and picnics must be pre-booked. Gazebos are booked on a per day basis, from 10am to 4pm, and cost £30 to £45, in addition to the usual garden admission.
As well as a chance to escape the house and enjoy the great outdoors, April and May will also be the best time to see Trentham’s annual Spring Bulb Festival, with this year’s event promising an even bigger display with thousands of extra bulbs – including six new hanging basket boat displays on the lake.
