There’s plenty of Spring holiday excitement at Knebworth Gardens and Park this Easter. Knebworth Park and Gardens are currently open daily for the holidays, and on Good Friday and Saturday, 14-15th April, there is a children’s Easter Trail through the gardens and dinosaur trail. The trail sheet costs £1 can be purchased on the day from the Gift Shop enabling families to have fun completing the trail with a fun reward.
On Easter Sunday and Monday, 16-17th April there is Easter Jousting with two scheduled jousting displays on both days at about 12.30 and 2.30 pm, depending on the weather.
Knights demonstrate their skills in hand-to-hand combat to the delight of the crowds who are encouraged to cheer and jeer their favourite knights. The turrets and towers of Knebworth House provide a spectacular backdrop to the costumed knights on majestic warhorses galloping at full tilt across the arena in a fantastic display of horsemanship. And for more family fun, the Green Dragon Bowmen Archery Club, who are based at Knebworth Park, will be offering visitors the chance to try some archery, £2 for 6 arrows. Full instruction will be given, have a go!

It’s a fantastic value day out – for just £9.50 per person (under 3’s go free), families can enjoy a day at the Gardens, Park, Adventure Playground and fantastic trail of 72 life-sized dinosaurs.
