The thrill of the chase. The hammering of your heartbeat. The satisfying crunch of an egg successfully caught, shattered and thrown into your gaping mouth. Despite the naysayers who'll say nay, you're never actually too old for an Easter egg hunt.

That’s why, while there may be lots of slightly more grown-up events going on in London this Easter, it's on these eggy trails that your heart truly lies. And sure, if you really have to, you can bring the kids along too. 

If egg hunts somehow aren't your thing, check out our list of alternative Easter events

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.

Easter Egg Hunt at the Florence Nightingale Museum

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.
