Easter means excitement at Knebworth House, whether you’re tackling a brain-teaseer trail or wincing as a knight in armour comes a cropper.

On Friday and Saturday the park hosts the popular children’s Easter trail – for just £1 children can buy a trail sheet from the Knebworth gift shop and follow the clues around the gardens to claim a reward.

Sunday and Monday will see the Knights of Arkley jousting in front of the iconic stately home, with the landmark turrets and towers providing a spectacular backdrop to the action.

There are two displays on both days at around 12.30pm and 2.30pm, but times may vary depending on the weather.

Children could grab a chance to fight for fun with the knights and their squires and the Green Dragon Bowmen will be offering visitors the chance to try their hand at archery,
