The Giant Easter Egg Hunt at RHS Bridgewater at RHS Garden Bridgewater, Manchester 29 March — 14 April 2024 Tickets from £0.00 — Book now

Enjoy a gigantic super-sized family adventure at the Giant Easter Egg Hunt at RHS Garden Bridgewater in Manchester, packed with all sorts of Easter fun, treats and activities for families with children of all ages to enjoy together, running from Friday 29 March – Sunday 14 April 2024.

Keep your eyes firmly peeled as you go explore the lush green gardens and search for those ginormous Easter eggs scattered amongst beautiful nature and wildlife. Each egg has been hand painted by artists Cath Ford and Alastair Price and are based on designs by local school children.

They might be easy to spot, they might be hidden in the most unlikely places – wherever they are, it’s up to YOU to find them! And if you do, you’ll be rewarded with a very tasty chocolate treat… yum yum!

Staying firmly in the spring-time Easter spirit, there will also be a chance to get creative with fun arts and crafts for the whole family to do together, and throughout the day there will be interactive performances to get involved with in the stunning outdoor spaces!

As well as enjoying all the Easter activities at RHS Garden Bridgewater, there will still be time to enjoy the usual garden fun and games across the site. Youngsters may want to explore the special Woodland Play Area with its magical hobbit houses, adventurous climbing frames and messy mud kitchens, and when you’re feeling a bit peckish after all that strolling you can hop on down to the picnic area for your home-brought delicious snacks, or visit the Bridgewater Cafe for tasty seasonal food or a coffee, as you sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning views of Victoria Meadow overlooked by the cafe itself.

To attend The Giant Easter Egg Hunt at RHS Garden Bridgewater, normal admission prices apply. Book through the RHS Bridgewater website.
