Easter in London

A double bank holiday, chocolate for days and plenty of springtime activities – maximise Easter weekend 2022 in London

Written by
Time Out London Things To Do

London has an amazing energy on bank holidays. Somehow the weather always seems to be glorious, great parties and club nights abound and the average Londoner’s usually cynical disposition is replaced by a weird sort of giddiness that only comes from knowing that nobody is going to send you any work emails for the next few days. 

Easter weekend is particularly blessed, not just because it’s a religious holiday, or because it essentially requires you to spend your time chomping on chocolate and hot cross buns, but also because it’s a rare double bank holiday, meaning we get four whole days of work-free fun from Good Friday on April 15 to Easter Monday on April 18.  

Whether you’re in the mood for a Sunday pub lunch, an afternoon spent lolling about in the park or some kind of fun-packed Easter activity, the capital has plenty to keep you occupied over your extra-long weekend. It could be the time to catch that show you’ve been planning to see or check out one of 2022’s hottest new exhibitions.

However you want to roll this bank holiday weekend, London has you covered. Check out our top picks for Easter weekend 2022 below.
