16TH & 17TH APRIL 2017

Family fun abounds as Rockingham Castle and gardens throw open the doors and gates on this, the first Bank Holiday of the year. The season officially begins with the ever-popular children’s Easter hunt in the magnificent gardens featuring the famous Elephant Hedge and Rose Garden. Seek out the brightly coloured eggs which have been hidden amongst foliage, under bushes, nestled in cracks and behind trees. Each egg has a letter, which makes up an Easter word. Once you have found the word you can claim your chocolate egg.


There is an opportunity for all the family to get involved in the farm animals family quiz too. If your little treasure hunters are still full of beans, they can help Wentworth find his missing gold and earn a badge as Chief Griffin Assistant!


Walker’s House, the licensed restaurant, will be open for hot snacks, light lunches and a takeaway service. So if the weather is fair, buy a picnic or pack one for yourselves to enjoy in the gardens. Alternatively, treat yourselves to a cream tea in the afternoon.


The Castle will also be open for you to see the collection of paintings and armour. Built by William the Conqueror 900 years ago, the castle has been the home of the Watson family since 1530. Standing in 18 acres of glorious gardens and boasting a licensed tearoom and Gift Shop, this is a day out for all the family to enjoy. The castle and gardens stand above the Welland Valley with magnificent views over five counties. The Rockingham of today combines the magic of a living castle, the splendour of a glorious setting and all the facilities of a fantastic visitor attraction.


Gates open at 12 noon each day with the Castle opening at 1pm. Last entry 4.30pm. Dairy free eggs can be provided on request.
