Keep the whole family entertained with chocolates, parties and a double bank holiday over the Easter Weekend. Plan a fun-filled Easter break with our tips on the best things to do at Easter 2017 in London. Here is a basket-filled with great stuff happening on Easter weekend in London:
Watch Passion of Christ Live-Watch a 90-minute performance of The Passion Of Jesus on Good Friday in Trafalgar Square for free. This open-air drama portraying the final days of Jesus is enacted by volunteers from in and around London. A perfect Easter gift for Londoners and visitors!
Easter Egg Hunts- Go on a Lindt Gold Bunny hunt as you explore the history of Hampton Court Palace, spot cadbury at the Museum of Brands to win chocolatey treats and embark on an Easter adventure quest at English Heritage’s Kenwood House.
Easter Sunday Lunch- Book a table in a top restaurant or pub for Easter Sunday lunch in London. To enjoy a Sunday roast, head to Roast, Rules Restaurant and the Ritz Restaurant to feast on seasonal specials alongside more usual Sunday options. Besides this, for a different experience, hop on to a riverside pub after an Easter Sunday to stroll along the river.
Family Attractions and Activities for Kids- At Hampton Court Palace, explore a magic garden filled with mythical creatures, meet a herd of mechanical animals at the Horniman’s Robot Zoo and learn to make chocolate bunnies in the Cadbury Factory this Easter. All these activities can be absolute fun with family.
Kids theatre shows- Make Easter holidays exciting for your kids watching the magical stories and memorable performances at London’s children’s theatre shows. Our suggested shows are- The Velveteen Rabbit, Sarah And Duck’s Big Top Birthday and The Elves And The Shoemaker.
Alternative events over the Easter weekend- Although it is a religious holiday, it would be a crime to let all that free time go to waste without partying hard, so try something new at Hackney Downs Vegan Market, find an impressive selection of frozen margaritas, flights of tequila at El Bandito, a Mexican bar and dance off the bar snacks to DJ sets at Homerton International Festival.
