Easter bonnets, bunnies and baskets

Weston Park, the magnificent stately home on the Shropshire \ Staffordshire border opens to the public for Easter fun from Saturday 28th March to Sunday 12th April promising plenty to do for all the family including free Easter themed craft activities.

Set in 1.000 acres of Capability Brown Parkland, Weston is a woodland fantasy, adventure playground and stately home all rolled into one.

The Woodland Adventure Playground has something to appeal to all ages with slides, zip wires, cargo nets and a climbing wall.  Jump aboard the Miniature Railway for a 14 minute train ride through the enchanting Temple Wood, keeping an eye out for wildlife on the way.

Visitors to the House can take a peek behind the scenes on Sunday 5th April and see exactly what goes on ‘upstairs and downstairs’ today at Weston.

Children can get crafty with the Education team as they will be putting on a range of children’s activities on weekdays during the holiday.  Kids can make Easter bonnets, bunnies and baskets complete with chocolate eggs and fluffy chicks.  Temple Wood will be home to an Easter Bunny trail where children can follow the clues and find the bunnies hiding out in the woodland.

If you are feeling peckish the Granary Grill & Deli on the estate serves up barista brewed coffee, freshly made sandwiches, homemade cakes, light lunches and afternoon tea.

Admission to the Park and Gardens is: Adults £6.50, Children £3.50 and Seniors £6.00.  A family ticket is £25.00 and includes admission to the House.  The House is closed on Saturdays.  Easter Craft Workshops are free and will run from Monday to Friday, 11am – 3pm on a first come, first served basis.  Behind the Scenes Tours cost £5 per person in addition to standard admission.
