Easter holiday in London
The bank holiday weekend is upon us and we have some perfect opportunities to spend some time with your loved ones and keep the kids occupied during the Easter break!
Don’t know what to do this bank holiday weekend? Don’t worry, London is packed with creative entertainment idea’s for both adults and kids and we have some EGG-cellent recommendations suitable for the whole family!
A classic activity during this holiday season is of course a magical Easter egg hunt and London is welcoming many hunts in some great locations all across the city.
Both Hampton Court Palace ( https://www.hrp.org.uk/hampton-court-palace/explore/lindt-gold-bunny-hunt/#gs.6mbghs) and Kensington Palace (http://tiny.cc/5unf5y) are a must see for all Easter egg hunt lovers. These hunts take place everyday from the 6th to the 22th of April, 10am to 6pm. In both locations you will get the chance to walk around the palace grounds and be in with the chance of winning a special prize (a very tasty chocolate Lindt Gold Bunny!)
The next hunt is organised by the famous Cadbury. This year Cadbury have hidden clues to follow in some great National Trust properties. The adventure is from the 19th to the 22th of April, the clues will lead you to a delicious chocolate prize. This is also a great opportunity to spend some time outdoors with the kids and explore a historical property. Find your nearest National Trust property by simply entering your postcode in the Cadbury’s website ( https://easter.cadbury.co.uk/)
