Easter fun at the Judges' Lodgings in Lancaster as annual egg hunt trail begins

Lancaster's oldest town house will host a special Easter egg hunt trail this week.

The Judges' Lodgings, which was built around 1625, will be holding its annual Easter egg hunt every day from Thursday April 14 to Easter Sunday, 17 April, from 11am to 4pm.

Admission is £1 per child, with no booking required. Normal admission charges apply.

Lynda Jackson, Museum Manager at Judges' Lodgings, said: "Bring the kids down to the Judges' Lodgings for a special Easter egg hunt.

"Little ones will get to explore the oldest town house in Lancaster and search for eggs around the house before playing croquet, boules, hula hoops and other games in our beautiful springtime garden.

"After the hunt our young hunters will finish with a tasty chocolate treat."

Families heading to the Judges' Lodgings, which is run by Lancashire County Council's museum service, will be able to gain entry museum using the recently relaunched 'Xplorer' pass.

For a flat annual fee of £20, families will be able to make as many visits as they like to the Judges' Lodgings over the course of the year. The pass will also grant two adults and two concessions (including the pass holder) entry to Clitheroe Castle Museum; Gawthorpe Hall in Padiham; Helmshore Mills in Rossendale and Queen Street Mill in Burnley.
