There is always plenty to see and do in London, and it seems that this Easter will be no exception. With the Easter holidays fast approaching, many parents will be wondering what they can do with their children to keep them entertained. Or maybe you’ve decided to head down to London with a loved one or some friends, and are wondering what new and exciting things you can experience during your week. Even if you live in London but want to do something different during the Easter period, then there’s sure to be something on for everyone.
Here is a quick rundown of what’s happening in London over Easter.
Death by Chocolate – London Dungeons (Up until Sunday April 12th_)
The London Dungeons have put their own scary twist on Easter this year by introducing a new Victorian sweet shop that offers up lots of colourful sweets and chocolate for the visitors. Whilst this might sound like a good thing, you must be warned that all confectionary are made with poison, so eat at your own risk! (Okay, so not real poison, but it’s fun for the kids!)
The Roof Gardens (Sunday April 5th)
If you fancy something different this Easter, then head down to The Roof Gardens on Easter Sunday for fun for the whole family. Set across 1.5 acres of greenery, it’s something different away from the hustle and bustle. Children can enjoy a chocolate Easter egg hunt with an egg-cellent prize for the winner! And parents, don’t feel left out; you can sit back and enjoy one of the Easter-themed cocktails whilst you watch the hunt going on!
Discover a Country Fair at River Lee Country Park (Sunday 5th April – Monday 6th April)
This two-day country fair offers plenty of fun for all the family! There’s huge array of events happening over the two days to keep everyone involved. There are several different animal shows throughout the weekend, including a live birds of prey show, a dog show and even a unique chance to bottle-feed lambs during a goat exhibition. (The children will love this one!) Other points of interest include motorcycle stunts, arts and crafts displays and plenty of food and drink stalls!
Egg Hunt at Selfridges (Thursday April 2nd – Sunday April 4th)
Easter wouldn’t be Easter without a good old-fashioned Easter egg hunt! Taking place across the fourth floor of the huge department store, children are invited to search for chocolate eggs in a race to see who can find the most. It’s free to join in and makes a perfect afternoon activity for parents to take their little ones.
Visit a chocolate shop (All year ‘round)
Everyone loves chocolate, and Easter is the perfect excuse to go visit some of London’s fabulous chocolate shops. We can’t name them all as we’d be here all day, but some of the ones that we do recommend are: Choccywoccydoodah, Melt, Rococo Chocolates and Artisan Du Chocolat. With every kind of chocolate you can think of and those you’ve never heard of, these chocolate heavens have something for everyone.
