The odd bit of rain didn’t spoil the fun for families celebrating Easter with a chocolate egg hunt at Hughenden Manor.

The Easter Trail at the National Trust estate, a Victorian mansion that was the country house of Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, opened to the public on March 23 and will remain so until Sunday, April 7.

Children and parents were invited to explore the estate’s vast park and woodlands for £3 per trail, a cost that includes an Easter trail sheet, bunny ears and a chocolate egg.

The whimsical route passes by life-size mythical creatures, holiday-themed twists on classic games and a prize for those who complete all 10 activities on their ‘quests’ around Hughenden.

The mythical creatures were spray-painted by High Wycombe-based artist Dan Wilson, also known as Decreate, who based the designs on the creations of children from five local primary schools.

The Hughenden Manor Easter Trail is open between 10am and 4pm until April 7, with last entry at 4:30pm.
