Become a Nature Detective!

Last Easter we invited visitors to put their detective skills to the test and become nature detectives!

We picked up our trail bag and explored our beautiful gardens to collect all the items and complete the activities. The Nature Detective was on hand to give us some clues.

Go On A Nature Hunt

We collected a trail bag and went hunting for natural treasure in the Beaulieu gardens!

Meet the Nature Detective

We said hello to the Nature Detective and even waved as he drove by in his Willys Jeep!

Cookery & craft in Palace House

We joined Lord Montagu's cook in the Victorian Kitchen and helped her create bird shapes out of dough, and got creative with bird-themed colouring.

See Amazing Tree Carvings

Did you find the tree-top griffin, the magnificent green man or the many-headed serpent?

Bird-Themed Crafts

We joined in with bird-making and colouring crafts in Palace House.

Learn about falconry

Visitors found out about the ancient art of falconry in the brand new Abbot's Mews exhibition. Some were lucky enough to meet Lord Montagu's falconer!

Spot Woodland Fairies

We tiptoed quietly down the Mill Pond Walk and spotted the homes of the woodland fairies.

Feeling peckish?

Visitors then flew over to the Brabazon Restaurant to tuck into seasonal Easter treats. They had a go at the 'Guess the number of eggs' competition and some even won a jar of chocolate eggs!

The children loved being “nature detectives". We were greeted by the housekeeper in Palace House, where the children had their faces painted, tried on the Easter bonnets and made biscuits in the kitchen.
