A showstopping topiary bunny can be found in The National Trust gardens of Stowe.

The bunny is one of a series which have been created to celebrate the ninth year of Cadbury Easter egg hunts at 271 National Trust locations – including Stowe.

The egg hunts take place over the Easter weekend, with every child who takes part receiving a Cadbury chocolate treat.

The striking, 4ft-high topiary bunny took a team of four five days to create. His 8ft friend, which can be seen at Stourhead in Wiltshire, took three days just to create the wire frame.
