Or if you’re a culture vulture with a passion for history and nature, Shugborough’s Complete Working Estate is your stop. From 10 – 13 April, enjoy a magnificent Shire horse and carriage ride across the beautiful Victorian parkland or try your hand at traditional Easter baking at the working kitchens. For more family fun, visit Shugborough’s farmyard, where Easter chicks and lambs will be making their first wobbly steps.
