Beautiful Borde Hill Garden opens its Easter Bunny Fun on the 29th March offering 3 to 11 year-olds an unforgettable Easter day out. This year the event has a botanical theme and each sculptural bunny is associated with a spring flowering plant. From magnolias, camellias, rhododendrons, daffodils, hellebores and more...
Andy Stevens, Head Gardener, said 'This year's theme will encourage children to learn about plants. When they start from early age it makes it much more fun.' Every child who discovers all of the colourful bunnies hidden around the historic Garden and then solves the word or picture puzzle will be rewarded with a delicious chocolate egg. What's more, on Easter Monday children are invited to dress as bunny rabbits for the adventure and the child with the best costume will be rewarded with a giant bunny teddy bear.
Children aren’t the only visitors with a treat in store. Mums and dads can revel in Borde Hill’s collection of camellias, magnolias and rhododendrons – all magnificent at this time of year. Thousands of spring-flowering bulbs and plants also make an impressive display in the formal garden and acres of tranquil woodland. if the kids still have energy to burn, keep them busy exploring the fascinating adventure playground with its climbing frames and zip line.
Cosy Café Elvira beckons with morning coffee, delicious home cooked lunches and Sussex cream teas, while for lovers of arts and crafts, The Green Tree Gallery is just the ticket.
