Easter Egg Hunts in Cornwall 2018

March 19th, 2018

While it may still be snowy outside, Easter is on its way very soon! If you’re thinking of taking a family trip to Cornwall over the holidays then going on a hunt for some chocolate eggs while you are there is an absolute must! To help you on your way to a truly egg-citing time, we have compiled some of the best Easter egg related activities on offer in Cornwall this year!


Paradise Park

A lovely family day out is on offer here from Paradise Park, with excitement for all the family. Primarily a wildlife sanctuary, the park has a number of species, including red pandas, penguins, donkeys and otters, as well as a vast number of different birds. With plenty of play spaces and gorgeous gardens to explore, there is so much to do here. Join the Easter Egg Hunt from the 30th March to 15th April and start your search for the clues along the trail. If you discover the answers, then there could be some mini chocolatey egg treats heading your way! There won’t just be chocolate eggs here though, as the tiny spring hatchlings are popping out at the moment and cheeping their way into springtime!


Cadbury Egg Hunt at Trelissick

From the 30th March to 15th April, the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt is heading to Trelissick. Grab a trail sheet as you enter the gardens and go in search of the clues hidden in nature. As well as gaining a chocolate egg, this hunt will give you the chance to enjoy all of the gorgeous spring blooms that are bursting into life around the Trelissick gardens.


Eden Project

Egg hunts are an Easter holiday staple, and the Eden Project certainly hasn’t disappointed! Go searching for the golden eggs hidden throughout the grounds at Eden as part of their Easter holiday eggstravaganza. Also on offer is the incredible spring maze and the giant plant-themed inflatable challenge, making for an action-packed family day out.



Easter Sunday sees Ferdi the Flambards Fox lead the way for the Big Easter Egg Quiz Trail. The park’s mascot will help you to find and follow the clues to discover the chocolate egg treats waiting for the successful Easter explorers! Flambards will be open throughout the Easter holiday for you to enjoy all of the rides, entertainment and attractions that they have to offer. As well as the Easter egg hunt, there will be an ‘Explosive Easter’ event, bringing some science to the park. Running from the 31st of March to April 8th, a number of exciting experiments will be exploding in the lab, and young scientists are encouraged to have a go at making their own gunge!


Tintagel Castle

Calling all brave adventurers! Dragon eggs are missing in King Arthur’s castle, and your help is needed to locate them! Accept the quest, and you’ll be on the hunt for some clues that may well lead you to a chocolatey reward!


Victoria Gardens

Each year Truro City Council hosts an Easter Egg Hunt for all children under 12 at the Victoria Gardens. With three age group categories for clues, each child who solves the puzzles will receive a free Crème Egg, as well as being entered into a prize draw for the coveted big Easter eggs. Following the chocolatey challenge, there will be a free bouncy castle, as well as refreshments. The egg hunt will commence at 9.30am on Saturday March 31st.
