From giant egg trails to Victorian egg rolling, the county is buzzing with exciting events to celebrate Easter.

Let’s dive into the egg-citing lineup of Easter adventures happening across Shropshire this year!


Shrewsbury’s Bunny Trail

Commissioned by Shrewsbury BID, amazing local artist Saffron Russell has visited 15 businesses in the town centre to produce a unique trail of window illustrations, depicting the bunny himself as he hops around the town, spreading Easter cheer (and some chocolate!) on his way.

From March 23rd to April 7th, kids both big and small are invited to visit the digital map for a list of the bunny’s last known locations and follow his trail around the town. The map can be found by visiting the link on any of the trail postcards or wayfinders to be found around the town centre

Step into Shropshire’s past with Victorian egg dancing

Away from the usual stately home egg hunting stomping grounds, few manage to properly whisk visitors back to bygone times like Shropshire’s Blists Hill Victorian Town. This immersive reconstructed Victorian town in the UNESCO world heritage-awarded Ironbridge Gorge will be staging Victorian egg dancing alongside the ubiquitous hunt, with a poster trail and other themed hands-on activities too. Make a day of it and experience more Easter happenings at Ironbridge’s multi-museum Valley of invention site, which is also offering the chance to make bunny artworks from clay at Coalport China Museum and Eggstronauts, a spacecraft making mission at the science and engineering themed museum Enginuity. Providing full access to all the museums for a whole year, tickets cost £40 adults and £23.50 for children or the family Plus Pass is £105 for two adults and up to four children. www.ironbridge.org.uk 


Easter Adventures at Attingham Park : From Saturday 16th March to Sunday 7th April, Shropshire’s Attingham Park will offer a family friendly Easter Adventure trail around the estate’s Mile Walk.  The trail includes ten spring-themed Easter trail stations for guests to complete before collecting a delicious chocolate egg.  Prices are £3 per trail, including Easter trail sheet, bunny ears and chocolate egg. This is in addition to the normal admission price to this 18th century estate and its 200 acres of parkland and Regency mansion, which starts from  £27.50 per family.  Visit : https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/visit/shropshire-staffordshire/attingham-park

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
