TOP EASTER ACTIVITIES IN LONDON
Easter may be a months away, but for those who like to be organised, here are some fun family activities to do this year!
Just a stones throw away from our hotel doors, Kensington Palace have designed a spectacular Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt which runs between 6 - 22 April.
You can take the family back in time and search around the home and gardens of Queen Victoria, William III and Mary II, as you follow the clues to find large golden bunny statues. The hunt is designed for children aged 3-12 so it truly is the perfect activity to do this Easter!
FANTASTIC FABERGE: AN EASTER EVENT
At the Queen’s Gallery you and the family can create a huge variety of decorated Easter eggs... From painted ones, to ones covered in sequins and of course, inspired by Faberge. You can also take on an Easter egg challenge in the Russia exhibitions; an exciting yet educational activity for the kids.
The Royal Mews annual Easter event is back bigger and better than ever! Become explorers and try to find all of the hidden horses to win a chocolaty prize, and while you’re there, make sure you have a go at their springtime and Easter inspired arts and crafts.
Both events are between 11:00 – 15:00 on 20 and 21 April and are free with standard admission. They are both excellent activities for the whole family and are sure to keep the kids entertained this Easter.
Choccywoccydoodah, Carnaby Street
If you still need your chocolate fix then head to one of the best confectionery shops in London. A personal favourite of ours is Choccywoccydoodah. Known for its outlandish, extravagant creations and magical interiors, it’s truly a chocoholic heaven.
Their Easter collection is no exception, so head to Carnaby Street for a slightly more dreamlike Easter this year.
BATTERSEA PARK LONDON ZOO
Battersea Park Zoo is the perfect place for little explorers! Let your family watch the animals up close and explore the exciting play area, equipped with a large sandpit, wooden fort and life sized tractor, fire engine and helicopter.
But to make your trip extra special, let the little ones feed the birds for only £1 this Easter. The kids can get messy using lots of seeds, nuts, yogurt pots and string, to create a yummy treat for the Zoo’s feathered friends!
Zippos Circus: Legacy Tour
For something a little more exciting, this year the Zippos Circus celebrates 250 years! Expect a spectacle like no other as extraordinary equestrians, astonishing acrobats, comic clowns and dashing daredevils join together in the ring to pay homage to Englishman Philip Astley, who invented the worldwide sensation that is circus in 1768.
Performances are showing all over Easter weekend on Shooters Hill Road Blackheath, where the World’s greatest ringmaster will present thrills and laughter for all the family, all inside a colourful and comfortable circus Big Top!
Passion of Jesus, Trafalgar Square.
For a truly moving experience, head to Trafalgar Square to watch The Passion of Jesus. No tickets are required, just head down at either 12pm or 3:15pm on Good Friday and enjoy the 90-minute production completely free of charge - a gift to Londoners and visitors!
Supported by the Mayor of London, one hundred Wintershall performers act out the final days of Jesus at one of London’s most iconic landmarks. Throw in some horses, donkeys and even doves, these performances attract up to twenty thousand spectators and is definitely worth the watch.
Don't worry... If you can't see something you love, keep watching this blog as it will be updated regularly as new activities are released in and around London!
