Easter at the Abbey

There's all sorts to explore at the home of Lord Byron this Easter...

The gardens, shop and café are open from 10am–5pm every day during the Easter holidays and entry is just £6 per car, making it great value for a family day out.

The house is open from 12–4pm* and is packed with history and information about Lord Byron and his life at the Abbey.

At just £8 per person (£6 for concessions or £20 for a family ticket) the house is well worth a visit.

*Last entry is 3pm.

Here are our top 6 things to see and do:

  1. Search the grounds – Find the eggs the Easter Bunny has lost! There’s even a golden egg to spot too. The trail costs £1 and is available from the house shop every day from 30 March–15 April, 10am–4pm.

  2. Easter crafts – Plan your visit for Sunday 1 April and enjoy some Easter craft fun in our activity room from 11am–4pm. Activities are free.

  3. Afternoon tea – Enjoy a look back in time in our Victorian kitchen on 1 and 2 April, 12–3.30pm. Booking is essential, to avoid disappointment.

  4. Explore! – There's so much to see within the grounds, including the various formal gardens, the lake and its resident wildlife, not forgetting our peacocks, who might just give you a stunning tail feather display. There's plenty of space for a few family games too, so bring a bat and ball or make sure the little ones run off some steam in the children's play area.

  5. Take a stroll – If you enjoy exploring, there are lots of paths which thread through the park, leading to interesting landmarks, including the Cannon Fort and Boatswain's Monument.

  6. Grab a bite – Bring a picnic or enjoy a tasty snack from our café, where there’s plenty of seating and a great choice of food and drink options, before finally heading to the shop to buy a memento of your day.
