Easter egg hunts and games in London
With their humungous grounds and lush gardens, National Trust properties were clearly made for Easter Egg hunts. Make sure you’re breaking into a Cadbury egg come Easter by joining the big Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt. Just enter your postcode to find your nearest National Trust property and whiz over there to crack the clues (before your neighbour gets there first.)
Got a young artist on your hands? Head to Walthamstow Wetlands for egg-based action this Easter. Swing by the Turbine Room and let the kids get colourful and creative decorating oval-shaped objects, before heading out to the wetlands for a good old fashioned egg hunt. They'll have to find all 10 eggs to score a chocolatey prize, which they'll then have to share with you too, obvs.
Chelsea Physic Garden (and the Easter bunny) are hosting a chocolate hunt to remember. And don't worry about leaving empty-handed - each entry is guaranteed their own Rococo chocolate Easter egg.
If you fancy something a little more bougie than a chocolate egg, Maître Choux will be hiding mini éclairs all around the King’s Road over the Easter weekend. Those lucky enough to find them can redeem them in store for a délicieux (and full size) dark chocolate éclair.
Florence Nightingale had a pet owl, Athena, who she rescued while she was on holiday in Greece. Now, apparently, 'Athena has lost her eggs,' and this is a hunt to find them. While we investigate the veracity of this claim, enjoy exploring the Florence Nightingale Museum and discovering treasures from Florence’s life as you look for eggs - and meet the owl too.
Spending quality family time together at Easter is a given, but the Horniman Easter Fair is on hand to make sure it isn’t a chore. Get stuck into the Easter trail, settle in for family-friendly theatre, join a creative workshop or just sit back and relax while someone paints bunny whiskers on your face.
Who said Easter egg hunts are just for kids? The boozy legends will be hosting a hunt for adult at their taproom in Haggerston. The egg hunt will be followed by a sports day in the court yad, featuring an egg and spoon race, a sack race and 'hot cross bunning.' Plus, live music and a barbecue.
