If any holiday was made for kids it's surely Easter, with its dramatic stories, bunnies, treasure hunts and near bottomless supplies of chocolate. Easter 2014 falls on Sunday April 20; make the long weekend a memorable one with one of these lovely family-friendly events.


The Horniman's major exhibition for 2014 looks at how plants and animals survive in extreme heat, cold, dryness and darkness. The answer? By adapting some downright wacky traits. Feel the air-conditioning inside an ostrich's beak, try to drink as fast as a camel and see how fat you are –compared to a seal. This family-friendly exhibition is in three languages – English, French and Spanish – and features loads of games and hands-on experiences.

  1. Horniman Museum 100 London Rd, SE23 3PQ
