Easter frolics for all the family at Burton Agnes Hall

Throughout the Easter holidays, Burton Agnes Hall will be hosting a jolly feast of activities for families to enjoy.

There are puzzles to solve and games to play, while in the craft tent children can get creative with colouring. Excitingly, there is a giant golden egg to find, which the Easter Bunny has been hidden somewhere in the grounds!
