It runs from March 28 to April 14, and you have to pay for general admission as well to take part, which costs £9 for an adult, £4.50 for a child, £22.50 for a ‘family’, and £13.50 for one adult and two children.

Easter at Muncaster Castle

Offering arts and crafts, at Muncaster Castle kids can design and make a protective shield for an egg, then drop them from the castle roof.

Tickets, which are £9, include entry to all the above, plus the Easter Trail.
