Easter in London

Chocolate, parties and a double bank holiday – here's how to maximise the 2019 Easter weekend in London

Easter egg chocolate

There's a lot to like about Easter in London – two whole days off, gratuitous chocolate consumption and if we're lucky, some springtime sunshine (it looks like the Beast from the East might not be paying us a visit after all). You will be spoilt for choice as to how you spend the year's first bank holiday, from spring fairs, to wild nights out, to giant Easter Egg hunts.

Easter Sunday falls on April 21 2019, but there's plenty of Easter-related antics on Good Friday and throughout the weekend in London (Friday April 19 – Monday April 22 2019). Whether you want to spend the weekend clinking glasses, plunging into piles of chocolate eggs or strolling through London in bloom, we've put all the best eggs in one basket for you.
