If you have children, grandchildren, are still a child at heart or just a chocoholic, why not embark on an easter egg hunt in Wales this April

Who doesn’t love an Easter egg and it’s even more rewarding to taste that first bite of chocolate if you’ve had to work for it? There are plenty of Easter egg hunts in our region for the young and slightly more mature to take part in. So wrap up warm, head out into the fresh air and start hunting. Here are a few suggestions, so you can start planning early:

• Denbigh Castle is hosting an Easter extravaganza with eggs hidden around the castle grounds. If successful in your quest, the first 300 participants will receive a chocolate treat. And while you’re there, you can even have a go at archery and watch knights fight it out in a medieval combat show. 8th – 9th April. Denbigh Castle

• Or if you are in the south of the Principality, Tredegar House, near Newport are hosting their own hunt from the 3rd to the 10th of April. There are lots of activities and the price of the trail includes a trail map, pencil and a chocolate egg prize at the end. Tredegar House

• Head to the coastal fortress of Caerphilly Castle from the 1st to the 16th April for some Easter fun for all the family.  As well as a hunt for eggs around the castle, there will be colouring-in activities for kids and the chance to make your own Easter card. Caerphilly Castle

• If you love steam trains, you could take part in Bala Lake Railway’s challenge to find all the Easter eggs the white rabbit has hidden along the line and at the station. And there’s also a yummy chocolatey prize for every child. The Easter egg hunt is included free with normal train tickets from the 7th to the 10th April. Bala Lake

• Step back in time and spend Easter with the Ardudwy Knights at Harlech Castle with combat displays and weaponry demonstrations every day from the 8th to the 10th. While you can take part in an Easter Egg Trail on the 9th April. Harlech Castle

• The grand National Trust mansion, Erddig, near Wrexham, are encouraging Easter foragers to help find one of their most beloved rabbits who has gone missing from the house collection. He’s lost in the garden alone, without a map, so can you help him navigate his way back to the house in time for his Easter tea party? Complete the trail of activities to guide him home and finally you can collect your chocolate egg. From the 5th to the 10th April. Erddig
