Will you be able to solve the riddle in the Tudor "trick" garden to claim your prize from the Easter bunny?
Burghley House in Stamford will provide the backdrop for an annual Easter egg hunt on Sunday, April 20 in the family-friendly Gardens of Surprise – a Tudor-inspired "trick" garden established by the first Lord Burghley. Visitors can follow the treasure hunt and solve the riddle to claim a chocolate egg from the Easter bunny.
Parents can also test their knowledge to try and win a family season card. All entries will go into a prize draw for a giant chocolate Easter Bunny (11am-4.30pm, free with a house and gardens or gardens only ticket).
Burghley's Fine Food Market will also see market stalls in the cobbled courtyard with around 30 local suppliers on April 12-13 (10am to 4pm, both days). You'll find handmade cheeses, artisan breads, organic vegetables, sweet treats and rare breed meats.
The Easter holidays will provide an opportunity to wander the normally closed South Gardens too – dominated by the mature oak and lime trees planted by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1844.
At this time of year the South Gardens also offer seasonal displays of narcissi and spring bulbs, and will remain open until Monday, April 21 (11am to 4pm). Admission by donation.
