The most egg-citing Easter egg hunts in Cardiff and South Wales
It’s Easter; school’s out and grown-ups are getting a long weekend off work. As well as being an occasion when eating chocolate for breakfast is acceptable, it’s the perfect opportunity for a family adventure.
We’ve searched Cardiff and South Wales to find some of the most egg-citing Easter egg hunts to keep the kids (and the big kids!) entertained through Easter weekend.
Top Easter egg hunts in Cardiff and South Wales
Dinosaur Hunt, Insole Court
For an Easter egg hunt with a bit of a twist, Insole Court is the place to go. Instead of chocolate, you’ll be searching for dinosaur eggs and other clues that’ll lead you to some real-life, prehistoric beings (no, we’re not talking about Mum and Dad!).
Be careful though, we’ve been told they aren’t the biggest fans of chocolate and we’d hate for you to get eaten instead!
Tickets for the dinosaur hunt are available through Insole Court’s website.
Llancaiach Fawr Manor
A short drive from Cardiff, Llancaiach Fawr Manor is a living museum that transports you back to Tudor Times. You’ll explore the house and gardens on their Easter egg hunt, searching for clues that lead to a tasty prize.
If you’re lucky, you might get some help from the undercook, dairy maid or maybe even the master of the house himself.
There are plenty of other activities on at the museum throughout Easter weekend too. Check their website to see what’s on.
Toddler Easter Egg Hunt, Jazzy Jungle
If you’re looking for Cardiff activities that are suitable for little ones, Jazzy Jungle have you covered; the soft-play centre is running an Easter egg hunt especially for toddlers on Easter Monday.
The ticket price also includes two hours of soft play, so they can go wild and keep exploring even after they’ve finished searching for Easter treats.
For accompanying explorers there’s a café on site for you to stop for a cup of tea in the middle of your rainforest ramble! That’s service you don’t get in the Amazon!
Tredegar House, Newport
Tredegar House and Gardens’ Easter egg hunt is organised by Cadbury’s and the National Trust every year and is perfect for anyone who’s an aspiring Attenborough.
You’ll be searching high and low around the gardens to find hidden eggs and following clues to discover which creatures they belong to. Make sure you’re quick though, you’ll need to get them back before they hatch!
The hunt is on all weekend, starting on Good Friday and running through until Easter Monday.
National Roman Legion Museum, Caerleon, Newport
Step back in time, solve the riddles and follow the trail around the ruins on this ancient Easter egg hunt in Caerleon. As well as being able to claim a prize after you’ve conquered the clues, you’ll also be able to learn more about the Romans and explore what life was like at this empire outpost.
There is a small ticket fee, but you don’t need to book in advance. Head to the museum shop to get started and remember to return afterwards to claim your prize!
Even if the kids have got their work cut out trying to find their eggs, you won’t have to hunt too hard to find something egg-citing to do in and around Cardiff this Easter weekend.
Whether you’re looking for a traditional Easter egg hunt or a trail with a twist, you’ll find something in the city that the whole family will enjoy and, if you’re lucky, will burn off some of that extra energy that comes with eating chocolate for breakfast!
