Easter Day Easter Egg Hunt, Gibberd Garden, Old Harlow, Essex


The Gibberd Garden is one of our favourite hidden treasures, and one I do not like to freely share. It is such a wonderful garden full of character, lots of sculptures, a moat and a traditional wooden swing hanging from an old tree with views across the fields. The Easter Day Easter Egg Hunt is a fun day where the whole family can enjoy the garden and activities including an Easter Egg hunt.
