Hampton Court’s family-friendly Easter weekend

Hampton Court’s family-friendly Easter weekend — running through April 17 —adds holiday chocolate lovers’ treats to the usual historic royal activities.

A Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt around Henry VIII’s home and gardens will result in receiving a chocolate treat, once all the bunnies are found. There will also be the opportunity to decorate one’s own chocolate cup to be enjoyed at home, and a session on how the Georgians drank their chocolate.

Strolling the palace grounds will be Henry and a pregnant Anne Boleyn awaiting the birth of their first child.

The Magic Garden interactive family play area has reopened, with a complex maze, a secret grotto, battlements, towers and mythical beasts. Families are also encouraged to download apps to their mobile devices that enable youngsters’ interactive engagement with digital “missions” throughout the palace and grounds.
