• Become a Garden Detective and hunt for the Lindt Gold Bunny on a daily garden trail
• Meet the Easter Bunny and see real fluffy bunnies during the Easter weekend
• Enjoy a birds of prey flying display every Thursday
Hop down to RHS Garden Harlow Carr in Harrogate this Easter and enjoy a host of family fun activities – and a delicious chocolate treat.
The main holiday fun kicks off on Friday 25 March and runs until Sunday 10 April with the Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt where youngsters can put their detective skills to the test on a daily garden trail. Follow the clues closely and see how many iconic Lindt Gold Bunny figures you can spot on your adventure. If you stay on the right track, you’ll be rewarded with a delicious Lindt chocolate treat.
During the Easter weekend (Good Friday 25 March – Easter Monday 28 March) visitors can meet real fluffy bunnies and the Easter Bunny himself will be hopping around the garden from 11am – 2pm.
Other activities vary daily and include craft activities, birds-of-prey displays and flying shows and storytelling sessions with the Garden Detectives.
For the grown-ups, a textile showcase is running in the garden’s historic Bath House until the end of March, changing to a paper and printing showcase for the whole of April. Handmade works by talented local makers will be on offer.

About the RHS
The Royal Horticultural Society was founded in 1804 by Sir Joseph Banks and John Wedgwood to inspire passion and excellence in the science, art and practice of horticulture. Our vision is to enrich everyone’s life through plants, and make the UK a greener, healthier, happier and more beautiful place. We believe everyone in every village, town and city should benefit from growing plants to enhance lives, build stronger, healthier, happier communities and create better places to live.
We held our first flower shows in 1820, were granted a Royal Charter in 1861 and acquired RHS Garden Wisley, our flagship garden, in 1903. From our first meetings in a small room off London’s Piccadilly, we have grown to become the world’s largest gardening charity. At our gardens and shows and through our scientific research, publications, libraries and our education and community programmes we inspire a passion for gardening and growing plants, promote the value of gardens, demonstrate how gardening is good for us and explain the vital roles that plants undertake.
The RHS is committed to bring the joy of gardening to millions more people, inspire the next generation of gardeners and invest in the future to safeguard a £10.4 billion industry employing more than 300,000 people. We are entirely funded by our members, visitors and supporters. RHS membership is for anyone with an interest in gardening. Support the RHS and help us secure a healthy future for gardening.
