All of this wrapped up with an Easter Café full of goodies where you can visit for refreshments along the way making this an Egg-cellent Eggs-perience for an Eggs-tremely Eggstraordinary Eggs-ilarating Eggs-travaganza!

In partnership with The Ramside Estates, Metro Radio and TFM.

Believe Easter Eggs-travaganza will be able to book by picking your chosen date and time and then your group name. There are 4 groups available. Each one does all the same activities just in a different order. You visit 4 different activities each lasting 30 minutes. Your group will be lead around by your Bunny Guide and we will give you a 30 minute break in the middle of your visit to refresh or visit the Café, see our little shop stall with Easter treats available, all wrapped up with a visit and a hug from the Easter Bunny before continuing on your adventure!

You can book using the swinging ‘book’ sign at the top of the website which will take you to choose your tickets. This is where you will select your date and time to arrive and then choose your group name. Once you have booked you will receive two emails, one will be your payment confirmation and the other your ticket. If you do not receive both emails, then please check your junk folder in your email just in case and if this can’t be found then please get in contact and we can re-send this to you. Please bring this with you on the day, either on your phone or as a print out and remember your group name so that you can find your Bunny Guide when you arrive.

Please give us a call if you have any further questions or about suitability if you want to check for anyone in your party.

Remember this is an outdoor Easter adventure! Although it’s taking place in April, the weather can still surprise us, so make sure you check the weather forecast to wear appropriate outdoor clothing. We will be visiting the different activities of which one will not be under cover, into the woodland area. The rest of the visits will be in either Tipi’s or under marquee cover but we still need to walk between each Eggs-perience. Remember please bring with you the confirmation email on your phone or a printed copy in case we need to double check info/group/name if required. It’s a good idea to know your group name prior to arriving.

When you arrive, please drive into Hardwick Hall Hotel driveway following the parking signs around to the back of the hotel. Make your way down the lane following the signs to our BELIEVE Easter meeting point, within the lower grounds of Hardwick Hall Hotel. You will then look out for your Bunny Guide who will be waiting to check you in. Your Bunny will guide you around in that group for the duration of your adventure. Any issues or if lost….then please come and visit us in the Easter Hut.

Once we gather everyone up….we are ready to start the Magical Easter adventure!
