If you’re planning to be around the capital during the next school holiday, there are some cracking opportunities to take part in one of the most traditional of Easter activities – an egg hunt. Have a look at details of four of the best, and decide which one would put the biggest spring in your step.
Become an intrepid Easter Eggsplorer in the beautiful surroundings of Borde Hill Garden & Parkland. Between March 28 and April 12, an Easter egg trail will be included in the normal entrance price. Solve the puzzle to win the obligatory chocolate treat. There will also be some giant garden games for the young and the young at heart. Meanwhile, the Bank of England Museum may not be your first thought when planning your Easter activities, but there is actually a rather fine hunt on offer if you make the trip. Little ones can search for the eggs and chicks that have been hidden along the Easter trail and enjoy a chocolate treasure at the end. There will also be the chance to create some cute animal finger puppets, all included in the entry price.
For harassed parents coping with yet another school holiday, what could sound better than sipping a delicious cocktail whilst your children are kept busy? That’s exactly what’s on offer at The Roof Gardens near Kensington High Street this Easter. The Easter Bunny will help your little ones to find some Choccywoccydoodah treats whilst you sit back and relax (or try to, at least). If you fancy winning more than just a bit of chocolate for the kids, head to Cutty Sark at the Royal Museums Greenwich, where taking part in the Easter egg hunt could win you a trip to Camp Bestival. Kids can also take part in the attraction’s first ever sleepover, with storytelling, games and a star-gazing adventure. How’s that for an idea?
