Activity sheets will be provided for children, and clues will be dotted around the castle grounds for the first 250 young visitors to find – in order to win a prize from the Easter bunny!

Families are invited to join the festive fun between 11am-4pm, and the prizes will be rewarded on a first come first serve basis.

Caerphilly Castle is one of the 128 sites in the care of Cadw, the Welsh Government’s historic environment service, and attracts 100,000 visitors every year. Caerphilly is the largest castle in Wales, and is regularly featured on many major television series and films including Doctor Who.

Tony Payne, Head Custodian at Caerphilly Castle said: 'We’re looking forward to welcoming families to our site on Easter Sunday, to celebrate the start of the new spring season.

The Easter egg hunt is designed to encourage children to explore every nook and cranny of the castle in a fun and exciting way, and to encourage children and their parents to learn more about this impressive historical monument.'

The event will take place on Sunday, 31 March between 11 – 4pm.  Tickets can be purchased on the day and normal admission prices to the castle will apply. Places for the Easter Egg Hunt are limited to 250, so visitors are encouraged to get to the castle early to avoid disappointed.
