The National Trust and Cadbury are teaming up to offer families a fun Easter weekend across Sussex.

Spokeswoman Hannah Elliott said: “Bring the whole family together this Easter and treat your loved ones to the magic of a Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt (April 19-22).

“Get ready for a long weekend of fun and discovery as you spot the first signs of spring, and experience nature bursting into life at the special places the National Trust looks after. Become a nature detective and follow the clues to finish your adventure with a delicious, chocolatey treat.

“There are more than 10 Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts to choose from across Sussex, guaranteeing a fun-filled Easter for everyone. You could search for exotic plants at Sheffield Park and Garden, take a nature themed trail round the garden at Nymans, or hunt for nature clues at Petworth.
