Easter looks to be packed full of fun at Cilgerran Castle with the return of two family favourites to the site.

Good Friday will see both the start of the ever popular Easter Egg hunt where visitors will be able to join the Cadbury Eggsplorers as they, once again, support the National Trust at Cilgerran Castle to host this year’s Easter Egg Trails.

Joining the Good Friday fun will be old friends Pembrokeshire Falconry and their fabulous birds who thrilled visitors last year. There will be flying displays as well as the opportunity to hold a bird of prey for a fantastic photo opportunity.

Kids will love being Eggsplorers for the day, and family fun days will be held over the Easter long weekend at Cilgerran Castle. Fun starts at 10am each day. Falconry display starts at 11am.

Normal admission to the castle for these events and there is an additional £1.50 charge for each Easter Egg Trail.
