There’s absolutely loads on in and around London this Easter. We’ve selected a few of our favourites for you to enjoy.
Easter Thrills at the Mills
Celebrate Easter Sunday at Merton Abbey Mills. There is a whole host of fun things to do. As well as the traditional Easter Egg Hunt, there’s also live music, bouncy castles, arts and crafts activities, puppet shows and more. An All Activity Pass is £5 which you can buy on the day. A fabulous family day out and it won’t break the bank!
Feast of St George 2019
Head to Trafalgar Square on Saturday 20 April for a feast of fun activities celebrating all things English. Trafalgar Square will turn red and white in honour of England’s national day and our patron saint St George. There’s music, dancing, an English Food Market and an artisan craft market as well as a Family Zone where you’ll find vintage rides and a Knights Training Camp. Children can learn all about knights, have their faces painted and take on the Dragon’s Quest. They can also meet some baby dragons in the Dragon’s Nest. They don’t bite, we promise! Come and hear the story of England’s patron saint in our Dance and Storytelling tent. Discover London’s hidden dragon’s in St George MythBusters with Hazel Baker from London Guided Walks. You can also meet, Dragon Expert, Julius Drake as he shares his adventures in Dragon Tales.
National Trust Easter Egg Hunts
The National Trust are running their annual Easter Egg hunts across their venues (1-28th April). We highly recommend Morden Hall Park and, if you’re willing to journey a bit further afield, Claremont Gardens. It’s £3 a child. Look out for the signs of spring and share fascinating facts about wildlife, as you search for clues and solve puzzles. Each child receives a decent sized Cadbury’s easter egg at the end.
Hop about with the Rhyming Rabbit at Wisley
Head down the A3 and spend the day in the beautiful surrounds of Wisley. This Easter (6-22 April) you can follow the Rhyming Rabbit Trail around the gardens, add your own rhyme to the giant poetry wall and enter the illustration competition. There are also a whole host of daily activities including storytelling, crafting, and face painting. If the weather’s warm take a picnic.
Horniman Easter Fair
Just down the road and accessible by public transport celebrate Easter with a trip to the Horniman Museum. They are hosting an Easter Fair on Easter weekend (20 and 21 April). Follow the Easter trail, enjoy some family-friendly theatre, join a creative workshop or dare to venture through the rabbit hole for a special storytelling performance inspired by The Hen That Laid The Golden Egg.
Fulham Palace Easter Trail
Hop over the river for some detective work at Fulham Palace. Their Easter Trail will make for a fun-filled time for all. Hunt through the beautiful building and gorgeous garden for clues to solve the puzzle and claim your prize! This event will run from 6-22 April and best of all it’s FREE!
Tooting Common Easter Egg Hunt
If you want to keep it local then we have an Easter Egg Hunt (Friday 19 April) right on your doorstep. The Easter Bunny has been spotted on Tooting Common again and rumour has it a huge basket of Easter eggs has been hidden somewhere. Enquires have been made, but the Easter Bunny is not giving up the location. However, the Easter Bunny has left a map and some clues to follow… This is a FREE event suitable for ages 2-14.
