The Magic of Easter

9 - 10 APR

Hop! to Holdenby House and join us for a Magical Easter Weekend. With the help of Alice in Wonderland, we are giving our 2023 season a really special launch with our new “The Magic of Easter”, on Easter Sunday and Monday.

Alice will lay the trail for the Easter Egg Hunt in the historic gardens and each day she will hide her Golden Egg, containing £100. Her friends will be on hand with lots of fun and activities for all to enjoy from, Egg Painting, Egg Rolling, Face Painting, traditional Fete Games, Croquet on the lawn or shopping at the Easter Market Stalls.

Alice loves the birds and animals in our own Icarus Falconry Centre where you will be able to enjoy the magnificent collection of Eagles, Falcons, Hawks, Owls, and Vultures and experience Flying Displays on the lawn. Also, although the growing wildlife wing does not have a March Hare you will be able to meet Roxy the Fox, Norma the Hedgehog and Kit & Kat the Polecats along with other fascinating wildlife members.

The House itself, now the home to the Lowther family and once the largest house in England and the Palace of Charles I, will be open on Easter Monday 12-3 pm (last entry 2.30 pm) so that everyone can enjoy the magnificent historic interiors.

After all that activity, Alice will not be the only one enjoying the delicious delights of The Old Stableyard Food Court where you will be able to enjoy wonderful Tea and Cake at the new Holdenby Tearoom or delicious Pizza from ‘Serious Dough’, Burgers from ‘Savannah Fayre’, Crepes by ‘The Biscuiterie’ and Ice Cream from ‘The Horsebox’ and ‘Ganders Goat’.

Finally, visit our Stableyard Shop where you will find a stunning range of boutique gifts form a local gift company, Seaton Gifts. There will be something for everyone including gifts inspired by Holdenby.

Look out for Alice! and enjoy a day out for the whole family.
