Whip off that wooly hat. It’s April and spring has officially landed in London. Get April in London off to a cracking start by filling up on tasty chocolate treats and hunting for eggs this Easter. With warm, sunny weather around the corner, hit up the city's rooftop bars, which are just starting to open, take a walk around London's fabulous parks, and start picking out your spot to wave on the brave souls taking part in the London Marathon. There’s a whole load of other London happenings, openings and pop-ups to get involved in this month. Here are our April 2018 highlights to get you started. FYI, we know you’ve got a good month ahead.
