Coplestone and the Grand Tour 19201080 For Webv2

A perfect Easter trail for those who are missing the lure of a European holiday!

Grab your Hestercombe passport and explore various European cities as you track down everything from Easter eggs to flying bells in 5 unique 'Where's Wally?' style challenges.

Get immersed in the culture, as you learn more about how Easter is celebrated across the continent, as well as what the 'Grand Tour' really was! It's also a perfect excuse to catch the spring sun and new flowers emerging across the landscape gardens.
