Easter egg hunts in the capital
The National Trust is teaming up with Cadbury once again to offer egg hunts in many of its beautiful London properties over the Easter weekend. You can use the Cadbury website to find one near you, but we recommend Sutton House for its curious caravan, Fenton House for its pretty walled garden and Red House for its wombat trail. Most hunts cost £3.50 per child.
This vast collection of branded wrappers, toys, homewares and general stuff has moved to a new home in Notting Hill. As part of their housewarming they're offering half price entry for the Easter weekend (March 25-28) and will be running an Easter egg hunt, object handling sessions, vintage games and advert screenings.
This cute family-run zoo in lovely Battersea Park will be running Easter egg hunts from March 25-28. Spot all the multi-coloured eggs in the animal enclosures and fill in a quiz sheet to win a prize. On Good Friday (March 25) little visitors can help the keepers to prepare egg-shaped feeds. Activities are mostly free with admission.
As well as a traditional egg hunt in the gardens of Lauderdale House this event features The Great Egg Roll in neighbouring Waterlow Park. Prizes will be awarded for the best decorated egg and the best roll, and everyone will go home with a chocolate treat. Tickets are £7.50 and should be booked in advance on the Lauderdale House website.
