Children across our region have been on the look out for one thing this weekend...chocolate!

Easter egg hunts have been taking place at various National Trust properties, including Oxburgh Hall in Norfolk and the Wimpole Estate in Cambridgeshire.

Families are given an 'Eggsploration kit', which includes a map, passport and special explorer hat.

At the Wimpole Estate, they have had more than 5,000 people taking part in the Easter egg hunt over the past few weeks. The trail goes through the estate's gardens, and involves tracking down golden egg boxes which eventually lead to a special chocolate Easter egg.

Hattie Parker from Wimpole Estate said:

"It's a really good family fun day out. It's something al the family can do together which is great.

"We've had 5,150 trails go out so far and all the children coming back and collecting their chocolate eggs - it's very exciting I think for everybody!"
