Easter Activities at Paxton House

Come along and enjoy the easter activities at Paxton House! 

We have a fantastic Easter Egg Trail which runs every day from the 1st of April to the 23rd of April. This get the kids out and about into the Paxton House grounds to hunt for clues- when they have solved the puzzle they get rewarded with a delicious chocolatey prize!

There are four different children’s activities running throughout the holidays on the 11th, 13th , 18th and 20th of April. Choose between making an Spring craft or doing some pond dipping!

Kids activities this October

This October at Paxton House our kids activities were so much fun, with Autumn lantern making, halloween mask or decorations and the Bat walks, there was something for everyone.

The bat walk was a huge success with all the family enjoying their adventure around the grounds and seeing many different species, including Soprano pips with Myotis in the woods and Daubenton skimming along the River Tweed. bat-walk

Making Autumn lanterns was the next activity, which did not disappoint. This had the kids foraging around the grounds for Autumn leaves and then back to the house to create their very own lantern to take home with them. Just take a look at the creativity!
