Become a Nature Detective at Beaulieu this Easter, follow the wildlife treasure trail with fairy doors, see the giant tree carving and enjoy animalthemed face painting and family activities around the attraction from April 8th – 23rd.

Spot Beaulieu’s very own Nature Detective driving around the grounds in his Willys Jeep, visit the topiary deer and plant a cress head with the gardeners, which you can then take home to grow.

Collect your own special Nature Detective trail bag to gather wildlife treasure on the Mill Pond Walk beside the picturesque Beaulieu River. Along the way, discover fairy doors which are hidden in the trees and stop to use your trail bag crayons to make a set of bark rubbings.

Then head inside Palace House for animal face painting, before capturing your image in a photograph taken through our hanging picture frame in the daffodil-covered Wilderness Garden. Just upload your pictures with #BeaulieuEaster to Beaulieu’s Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram for the chance to win a family annual pass.

Over Easter weekend, from April 14th – 17th, you can also meet the Easter bunny and see the National Motor Museum come to life with veteran cars motoring around the grounds.

All of the Easter activities are included for free with general admission entrance. Go Karts are also back on the events arena from April 8th – 23rd, for a good value extra charge.
