11 March 2019

6 – 22 April 2019

It’s an exciting first at Kensington Palace, as the Lindt Gold Bunny comes to visit this Easter! Hop along with the whole family to Kensington Palace from 6 to 22 April to discover yummy hidden treasure in the form of a Lindt Gold Bunny. Offering little ones the chance to become intrepid explorers and embark on a chocolatey adventure, the hunt will take visitors on a voyage of discovery around the palace and gardens. Better yet, all those who successfully complete the trail will be rewarded with a delicious prize! It’s the perfect way to entertain the family during the school holidays, and it’s all included in the cost of palace admission.

As well as the Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt, there are a whole host of fun activities both inside the palace and out in its gardens, with lawn games and even Georgian fashion on offer - there’ll be something for everyone. In the sumptuous King’s State Apartments, the whole family is invited to step back in time to a party at the glittering court of George II, including dressing up in traditional Georgian costume and trying out the ‘latest’ court fashions. Visitors to the opulent King’s Gallery can also meet King William III and learn more about the important work of state he conducted from Kensington Palace. Little ones can take part in learning some royal etiquette techniques, including how to correctly bow to the throne. Meanwhile, outside in the grounds there will be a whole host of garden games - from coits to croquet - under the careful guidance of Queen Victoria’s childhood governess, Baroness Lehzen.

For those who want even more chocolate fun, head to Hampton Court Palace, where the Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt will be running for its third year. Families can explore the fabulous Magic Garden, discover Henry VIII’s Kitchens, and indulge their sweet tooth in the historic Chocolate Kitchen.
