Ask any Londoner what the vibe is on bank holidays and they’ll no doubt agree that it’s absolutely bloomin’ marvellous. From blissful drinks in the park to glorious day parties and some of the year’s biggest and best club nights, this city sure knows how to make the most of an extra day or two off. 

And Easter weekend is a particularly sweet deal. Not only is it a religious holiday that demands you eat as much chocolate as humanly possible, but it’s also a rare double bank holiday. Meaning, yes, you get four whole days of work-free folly. And somehow, despite coming right during the raitime of year, the weather always seems 

Easter weekend this year runs from Good Friday on March 29 to Easter Monday on April 1. And, as always, those four days are packed full of stuff to keep you busy. Whether you’re after afternoons dazing in sun-glazed parks, extended Sunday pub lunches, evenings at the theatre or 2024’s hottest exhibitions – London this Easter bank holiday weekend has you covered. Here are our top picks below.
