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?
Free Face Painting
We went incognito with nature-themed face painting!
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.
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!
