Around the formal gardens, featuring the famous Elephant Hedge and the Rose Garden, the Easter bunny has been hard at work.

A myriad of brightly coloured stars have been hidden amongst foliage, under bushes, nestled in cracks and behind trees. These stars can be traded in for mini chocolate eggs or find the bonus stars to win a full size Easter egg.

Brush up on your knowledge of the Queen for our quiz celebrating the 90th birthday of Britain’s longest reigning monarch for a chance to win an extra chocolate egg.

If your little treasure hunters are still full of beans they can help Wentworth find his wandering armour to earn your badge as Chief Griffin Assistant.

The Castle will also be open to observe the splendid collection of paintings and armour.

The gates open at 12 noon each day with the Castle opening at 1pm. Last entry is at 4.30pm.
