What is going on for Easter 2024 in Plymouth? 

Easter Trails in and around Plymouth for Easter 2024

Saltram House

If you know my blog, you’ll know I’m a big fan of our local National Trust places, particularly Saltram. Although I don’t get to go there as much as I used to now everyone is at school!  So top of mine, and most Plymouth parents’ list is always the Easter Egg Hunt at Saltram. And 2024 will not be a disappointment! 

From March 23 to April 14, families can join in the National Trust’s Easter Adventure Trail at Saltram. Pick up an Easter trail from the Visitor Welcome centre from 10am to 4.15pm daily. Then head around the garden to find 10 colourful activities, including games and interactive challenges for the whole family to get stuck into. Full of fun and colour, the activities will include racing around a race-track in the trees, competing in a sack race, going on a colour-hunt and much more.

Normal admission plus £3 per trail, includes a chocolate egg, or a vegan ‘Free-From’ chocolate egg, both made using cocoa from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms.

Just be aware Saltram is having a bit of a nightmare with their waterlogged car park. (Remind me not to get my van stuck yet again!) They may need to close the car park for short spells during the Easter holidays to allow cars to clear, so are advising we check their most recent social media posts for changes to opening times before we visit. I’ll see you there, I expect. It’s not Easter without a trip to Saltram, right?

Buckland Abbey

A similar Easter Adventure is also taking place at Buckland Abbey near Yelverton but with a dragon theme. It will be on from 10am to 4pm from March 23 to April 14. Help Buckland’s ranger team look after the site’s dragon population by finding all 10 of Mother Dragon’s eggs and completing the activities. Pick up a map to help you find all the activities and learn how you can look after dragons. When you’ve completed your quest, make sure to pick up your Easter Egg at the end of the trail, and don’t forget to ask for a stamp! It costs £3 per trail plus normal admission, and you get a Rainforest Alliance chocolate egg.


Yes, you’ve guessed it. There is also a trail at Cotehele in south east Cornwall. If you want a different NT property to visit once you’ve exhausted Saltram then head over the Tamar to Cotehele. Like the others, it’s on daily from 10am to 5pm (last entry 4pm) from March 29 to April 14 and is £3. Just don’t forget to collect your chocolate egg at the end. Like you would! 

Antony House

If you’ve never been to Antony House near Torpoint, then this is a great chance to visit. It’s not open as much as the other local National Trust properties, so grab the opportunity while you can. It’s been closed all winter and reopens for the Easter holidays. The Easter Egg Trail and nature-inspired activities for the whole family is on from March 29 and daily between March 31 and 4 April, and April 9 to 11 April from 12noon to 5pm, with last entry at 4pm. It’s a beautiful place to explore for a change, and for £3 per trail, you get an Easter trail sheet, bunny ears and a chocolate egg.

If you want to go further afield, other National Trust properties which would be great to visit during Easter 2023 include Killerton, Arlington Court, Castle Drogo, Coleton Fishacre, Greenway, Knightshayes and Lydford Gorge.  But I’ll be sure to see you at Saltram, no doubt. Probably shouting at my boys for doing something wrong. Come and say hi!

Each beautifully decorated egg is inspired by a different local habitat in Spring time and the animals that live there.  Find bunnies hiding in the flower meadows and bees making honey in their hive. There is a letter hiding on each egg, and once you have found all 10 letters and worked out the 10-letter word, complete the online form before April 21 to enter your answers. You could win one of three £50 vouchers to spend in either Waterstones, The Entertainer, WHSmith or Smyths. Sounds pretty good to me!

The Barbican

The Eggstraordinary Barbican Easter Trail takes place on Plymouth’s historic Barbican from March 29 to April 14. The free family fun will include discovering who will be hatching the eggs hidden on the trail – they are all creatures that live in or around The Barbican, except one.

Getting out and about this Easter 2024 in Plymouth

And if none of the above take your fancy, get your picnics packed and get out and about – let’s hope for some sunny weather. You could head to Central Park for a bike ride or play in the huge play park, West Hoe Park, the Hoe itself, Plymbridge or Radford Woods, the beach, the moors. Plymouth has some amazing outdoor spaces if you’re looking for something cheap… we live in such an awesome place! And if it just happens to be raining (which I’m SURE it won’t!), then check out some Rainy Day Activities in Plymouth here.
