It’s almost that time of the year again when Cadbury teams up with the National Trust to offer families the ultimate day out with their popular Easter Hunts.

The Cadbury Easter Hunt at Upton House near Banbury will take place every day of the Easter weekend on March 25-28 from 11-4pm. Families will be invited to unleash their inner explorer with a Wellington boot hunt in the gardens.

The Easter Hunt will be part of a wider property exhibition about how Upton House was transformed into a bank during the Second World War when it was evacuated from London.

Each member of bank staff when arriving at Upton was issued with a pair of Wellington boots and on a hunt around the gardens families can find out more about them.

Children will be rewarded with a Cadbury chocolate treat at the end of each completed hunt, and every single Cadbury Easter Hunt will help support special places looked after by the National Trust for future generations to explore.

Inside the house visitors will also be able to get involved in the Banking for Victory exhibition by knitting, typing letters and sharing memories of WWII. There will also be a family quiz to do while exploring the rooms.

The Pavilion Restaurant will be serving hot lunches and Easter treats and families will be able to shop for sweets and gifts from the new spring range.

There is a charge of £2.50 per hunt and normal admission prices apply.
