Easter egg hunt 2022 in Bristol: best chocolate egg hunts near me - including National Trust trails

The Easter holidays have arrived, which means that people will be anxiously hoping to attend an egg hunt - here are some of the best in Bristol, including National Trust egg hunts.

Easter is such a magical time for all the family - the presence of fluffy bunnies, people stuffing their faces full of sweet chocolate, and the mystery of sprawling through the local countryside in hope to find a hidden chocolatey treasure.

Now that the Easter holidays have officially begun, children have some much needed time off from school - so what better way to spend some family time than taking part in some of the best Easter egg hunts in the Bristol area.
