The Best Things to Do in London This Easter

Posted:March 2, 2024 at 6:27 pm

With Easter around the corner, it’s time to plan the double bank holiday with chocolate for days and the best spring activities London offers. Whether you’re after afternoons dazing in sun-glazed parks, Sunday lunching or something egg-stra special, we’ve put together a list of the best things to do in London this Easter.


1. London Easter egg hunt

When it comes to word association games, “Easter” and “egg” are practically inseparable, and let’s be honest, we’re all thinking chocolate here. London becomes a treasure trove of chocolate hunts during Easter, making it the perfect time to switch on those chocolate-detecting senses and venture out. It’s the one occasion where putting all your eggs in one basket isn’t just recommended; it’s part of the fun!

Starting with the Immersive Easter Egg Hunt at Covent Garden, running from March 27 to April 24, this hunt is like no other. Its magical twist combines the thrill of the search with the excitement of winning. With prizes galore, it’s a perfect blend of adventure and reward, promising fun for everyone involved.

If that wasn’t enough, Hampton Court Palace introduces the enchanting Easter Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt, creating a magical experience for children aged 3 to 12 and their families. From March 23 to April 14, the palace grounds become the setting for a captivating adventure. Follow clues to discover Lindt Gold Bunny statues hidden across the estate. Each bunny is linked to a significant historical figure from the palace’s storied past, blending fun with a dash of education.


2. Eye up the eggs in Fortnum & Mason

Get a glimpse of the tempting selection of Easter eggs at Fortnum & Mason’s chocolate department. Discover a range of seasonal delicacies or surprise your loved ones with an exquisite Easter hamper from this prestigious, royal-approved grocer.


3. Try your hand at pasta-making

Celebrate Easter at Pasta Evangelists with a special edition class that teaches you how to make the striking ‘Uovo in Raviolo’ or egg yolk ravioli from scratch. This delicious dish is the perfect way to celebrate Easter: a large, single, luxurious raviolo filled with spinach and ricotta wrapped around a single yellow egg yolk.

Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted with a complimentary selection of antipasti, which will allow you to mingle with your chef and fellow classmates and set the stage for an evening of culinary creativity. Indulge in unlimited Prosecco throughout the class, ensuring a festive atmosphere as you learn and laugh. We provide everything you need for the class, including a linen apron and beechwood pasta tools, to ensure you have an authentic experience.


4. Watch the Passion of Jesus in Trafalgar Square

Those who appreciate the more conventional aspect of the Easter celebrations or enjoy a captivating performance, witness the Wintershall players’ rendition of the Passion of Jesus. The production takes place in Trafalgar Square, and trust us when we say that it fills up quickly – the crowds are always enormous.

However, the organizers have thoughtfully installed a couple of screens to ensure that those at the back can also witness the gripping retelling of Christ’s final days. This year, there are performances at 12 noon and 3:15 pm. No tickets or bookings are required. The 90-minute performances are free.


5. Visit the Transport Museum

While you might not think that a trip to the museum screams Easter, the Transport Museum will convince you otherwise. This Easter holiday, explore the relationship between London and its green environment and let your creativity blossom. Learn about the resilience of plants through poetry, science and storytelling workshops. Discover the history of our Museum’s home as Covent Garden’s former flower market, and learn how plants may answer many of our future problems.


6. Dine in with all the trimmings

Is there any better way to do Easter Sunday in London than hitting up a roast? Just kick back, give your belt a little slack, and get ready for those dreamy potatoes, that killer gravy, and all the other amazing sides to do their thing. It’s the ultimate comfort food feast.

All over the city, restaurants and pubs serve this British favourite. You’ll find everything from your classic beef rib to a mix-and-match of meats and even some super creative takes for vegans and vegetarians. We’ve rounded up the best of the best for you, covering all the bases for that perfect Sunday roast fix.


7. Discover more parks and green open spaces

It wouldn’t be an Easter weekend without a stroll in one of London’s best parks. From boating in Hyde Park and cycling in Battersea Park to deer-spotting in the countryside of Richmond Park, London’s parks have plenty of things to do with panoramic views to match.
