The very best Easter activities for kids in London
Are you looking for ways to entertain your children in London this Easter?
Your search is over. Here is a list of all the fun activities I’ve found for families to enjoy around the capital this holiday.
Easter Egg hunts (all ages)
~ You and your little ones can rub shoulders with royalty during the Easter Lindt gold bunny hunt at Kensington and Hampton Court Palaces this holiday between the 6th and 22nd April. Oh and if you bump into William, Kate, Harry or Meghan, do let me know!
~ National Trust properties are always bound to have something fun going on for children over the holidays, Ham House will also be hosting a Cadbury’s Easter Egg hunt between the 6th and 22nd April. There are free games like hop scotch, a hopping bunny sack race and an egg and spoon obstacle course and lots of arts and crafts throughout the Easter holidays.
~ It’s local, it’s fun and my kids love going every year - the Cadbury’s Easter Egg hunt will be held at Morden Hall Park between the 19th and 22nd April this year. Oh and their Quacky Races event on the 11th and 12th April looks like brilliant fun for all ages.
~ Fenton House in Hampstead has an Easter Egg trail between the 19th and 22nd April and also some brilliant craft activities throughout the holidays from 6th April where you can make yourself some bunny ears or create your own finger puppets.
~ There is lots going on at Sutton House in the heart of Hackney over the holidays including an Easter Egg hunt between the 19th and 22nd April
~ There isn’t any chocolate involved in this Easter trail but young detectives are sure to enjoy helping the Easter bunny hunt down clues to solve a puzzle at Fulham Palace this Easter - oh and as an added bonus this event (between the 6th and 22nd of April) is free!
~Are you after something a bit more sophisticated than the standard Easter Egg hunt? Then you should head over to the boutique Blakes Hotel which has teamed up with jewellery designer the ANNOUSHKA. Golden chocolate Easter eggs will be hidden around the Blakes Below space for children to discover. Among the eggs, there will be one golden Blakes Hotel x William Curley egg, which holds an 18ct Gold Diamond Initial Pendant on a chain by ANNOUSHKA. The first person to find the egg gets to keep the necklace, worth £745.
Sharing my love for photography is something I am deeply passionate about and so of course this brilliant activity immediately caught my eye. And it’s taking place in one of my favourite places in London as well - the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich on Monday 8th April.
Museum and Art Gallery Activities (varying ages)
~ Get creative at the British Museum on Monday 15th April making art inspired by the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch- and the best thing? It’s free!
