Flower Power Easter Trail at Hestercombe Gardens

Get back to nature with our Flower Power trail! Learn about the colourful flowers popping up around Hestercombe this spring as you try and find their locations in and around the formal gardens. Then, have a go at designing your own Flower Power hero based on one of the flowers you've seen.

Perfect for superheroes of any age ~ especially if you've missed the joy of the formal gardens.

Prices & Tickets

Access to the Flower Power trail is included when you purchase the Coplestone and the Grand Tour trail, which takes place around the Landscape Garden, and comes with a special chocolate prize.

Coplestone and the Grand Tour costs £2.50 + standard garden admission (free for members).

You can purchase the trails when booking your garden admission online, or when you arrive at Visitor Reception.

From Monday 19th April, the Flower Power trail will be free to enjoy as Coplestone and the Grand Tour closes (gardens admission required). Flower Power will close on Monday 3rd May.

Easter Takeaway Food

Throughout the Easter school holidays our chefs will be preparing some delicious food for you each day, whilst the Stables Cafe is out of action due to its refurbishment, including wood-fired pizza, slow wood-fired meats, gourmet topped hot dogs and Somerset deli platters amongst the food on offer.

See the full calendar of food - you'll need gardens admission to enjoy the takeaway food.
