Event Details

Despite the Islands recent battering from the ‘Beast From the East’, Spring will still arrive earlier at Ventnor Botanic Garden than elsewhere on the Island, making it a beautiful place to visit during Easter!

We have lots of fun and creative activities for families this Easter including pottery painting,  drawing competitions, best dressed bunny fancy dress, biscuit decorating and an April Fools’ Easter East Egg Hunt – which will be great fun! There is also a free daily Garden Easter trail – just pick up a map and hunt for the clues to claim your reward!
