Easter adventures await at Bamburgh Castle

Great things to do for all the family these Easter holidays



Marley the mini pony meets visitors at Bamburgh Castle


Hop into history and celebrate Easter at Bamburgh Castle with a host of springtime activities for all ages.

Whether you fancy hopping around our resident Dragon Hope’s Easter Trail – with a tasty Easter treat at the end, making your very own Easter inspired Bamburgh craft to take back home or being crowned King or Queen of the North by Viking warrior Ragnar there’s lots of eggs-citing things to do in and around the castle. 

From April 9 – 24 hop to it and follow Hope the Dragon’s Easter trail around the castle grounds and learn about our many secrets. Follow Hope’s clues and if you work out the special word an Easter treat awaits as your reward. 

Trotting into the Easter holidays on April 11 and 18 is everyone’s favourite mini pony Marley. Marley loves a cuddle and posing for an Easter selfie as well as giving short rides around the castle grounds in his special cart. 

Take part in craft making and create your own Easter decoration to take home with you, with sessions running in our Craft House on April 12 and 21. 

Learn about Bamburgh’s mighty past as the real Last Kingdom of Bebbanburg with Viking warrior Ragnar. Ragnar will bring to life Bamburgh’s incredible Viking past and talk about the real Uhtred the bold of Bebbanburg, the star of popular Netflix series and epic Last Kingdom Bernard Cornwell novels. 

And for the ultimate Easter experience, visit Ragnar at his stone throne and be crowned King or Queen of the North.

Hosted by award-winning florist Sharon Wright, make a vibrant springtime wreath to celebrate Easter at classes running on Good Friday – April 15 and on April 19.
