About the event:
Become a Nature Detective at Beaulieu this Easter, follow the wildlife treasure trail with fairy doors, see the giant tree carving and enjoy animal-themed face painting and family activities around the attraction. .
Spot our very own Nature Detective driving around in his Willys Jeep, visit the topiary deer and plant a cress head with our 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. 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 theWilderness Garden outside. Upload your pictures with #BeaulieuEaster to our Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram for the chance to win a family annual pass for more visits.
Ride on the high-level monorail for the best view of our tree-topgriffin carving, which has the tail and back legs of a lion and head, wings and talons of an eagle and is the heraldic, mythical creature which supports the Montagu family coat of arms.
Continue your Nature Detective hunt inside the National Motor Museum and follow quiz clues to find cars with the names of birds, flowers and animals.
Then pick up your Nature Detective reward treats of a refreshing juice drink at the Brabazon Restaurant and a happy bug in Visitor Reception, at the end of your visit.
Over Easter weekend, from April 14th – 17th, you can also meet our larger-than-life Easter bunny, pick up a chocolate treat from Palace House and see the National Motor Museum come to life with veteran cars motoring around the grounds of the attraction.
All of the Easter activities are included for free with general admission entrance. Rides on the monorail, vintage bus and Wheels – which takes you on a journey through time to experience 100 years of motoring history – are also included in your great value ticket.
A ticket includes the National Motor Museum’s collection.
Go Karts are also back by popular demand on our events arena throughout the Easter break, from April 8th – 23rd, for a good value extra charge.
