Several Easter bunnies are on the loose at Strawberry Hill as the hoppiest time of year arrives again, with fun activities for all the family.

Highlights include workshops where children can create an egg masterpiece or grow their very own beanstalk.

There will also be shorter drop-in activities which include planting a sunflower or becoming a bouncing bunny.

Everyone can enjoy a bunny hunt inside Horace Walpole’s gothic villa throughout the holiday.

Over the Easter weekend, children can also search for eggs left behind by bunnies making mischief to win a chocolate prize.

Gardener in charge Jennifer Sarginson said: “These bunnies have only recently appeared but they seem to be multiplying rather quickly and they are taking over the garden.

“I have found them in our polytunnel, lazing around on the shell bench and nibbling on the vegetable garden.

“They are definitely up to mischief and I’m worried they’re eyeing up the house, we really need to regain control.”
