LONDON GUIDE FOR THE EASTER HOLIDAY 2019

Easter Egg Hunt

There are several locations hosting an Easter egg hunt that is sure to be a fun time for the whole family! Check them out below:

  • National Maritime Museum is hosting exciting workshops and a scavenger hunt for mystery objects, strange animals, and secret stories.
  • Kensington Palace will be holding a Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt between 6th-22nd
  • Hampton Court Palace is hosting a historical Easter egg hunt along with other of England’s Heritage properties.
  • The WWT London Wetland Centre hosts their annual yellow duck hunt where you can score a delicious prize and compete against your friends to find the most ones!

Easter Sunday Roast

Of course, the best part of Easter, aside from the egg hunt, is the delicious Sunday lunch with the whole family. Here are some of our classic Sunday roast lunches around London:

  • Simpson’s in the Strand has been serving roasts since 1848 and is one of the top choices for a Sunday lunch. Indulge in their Scottish beef and Welsh lamb as it’s carved directly in front of your table.
  • Roast is in the heart of Borough Market so you are rest assured that they source fresh ingredients to create the perfect roast.
  • Rules is a historic Covent Garden restaurant that has only been owned by three families since 1798. Their mouth-watering dishes prove to be a Sunday roast favourite.

Afternoon Tea

For a restful and relaxing afternoon, head over to our favourite selection of quirky, family-friendly afternoon teas:

  • Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea at the Sanderson is something you shouldn’t miss! The peculiar and fun décor is sure to be enjoyed by the whole family.
  • Charbonnel et Walker Afternoon Tea at May Fair Kitchen is a chocolate heaven. It combines traditional afternoon tea delicacies with chocolate truffles, scones, and doughnuts drizzled with rich chocolate sauce. Sign us up please!
  • The Gallery at Sketch is always a fun time with its eclectic interior and space-pod toilets. The afternoon tea experience is one that everyone will enjoy, especially with its pink aesthetic, Turner Prize-winning art exhibits, and assorted ‘petits gateaux’.

Family Days Out

While your kids are off on their school holiday, take them to one (or all) of the events happening around the city!

  • The Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace features a showcase of mysterious topiary, tall towers, and a sleeping dragon. If you’re up for the challenge, check out the garden maze and try to find your way out!
  • Brick Wonders is back and its bigger than ever. Marvel at Lego recreations of the world’s attractions – some using more than 50,000 Lego pieces! Check out the Lego versions of the London Bridge, the Great Barrier Reef, and Egyptian Pyramids. You can even recreate your own masterpiece with DIY Lego at the end of the exhibit.

Rapunzel’s annual Easter show is returning with its classic songs, dances, and humour. Be prepared to volunteer as the show involves audience participation!

Celebrate the Easter holiday with fun activities around London for the whole family. This guide is complete with Sunday roasts, afternoon tea, kids activities, and of course, Easter egg hunts!
