Easter trails and activities across Yorkshire with National Trust to take place over the Easter holidays for families

Beningbrough Hall and Nostell are two of the National Trust gardens in Yorkshire that will be hosting Easter trails and activities over the holidays.

With warmer days approaching and Easter school holidays, various homes and gardens in Yorkshire will be organising festive Easter events for families.

National Trust venues are setting up their one-of-a-kind ‘Easter adventures in nature’ trails. Families of all ages are welcome to visit the gardens and landscapes of Yorkshire, make nature discoveries, try out the challenges and collect a Rainforest Alliance chocolate egg at the end.
