Never one to miss an occasion to celebrate, London is offering a bank holiday weekend chock-a-block with fun activities and Easter-themed events. From where to buy that obligatory chocolate egg to the best places to take your kids on an Easter adventure, we give you the rundown of Easter events in London.
- Easter Egg Hunt at Kew Gardens
- Ducklings at London Wetland Centre
- Berwick Street Record Day
The Easter weekend is also home to The Berwick Street Record Store Day which takes place in Soho on the 19th April. The street is lined with the largest concentration of indie record shops in London making it the ideal place to stage a mini-festival to celebrate Record Store Day. There will be an outdoor stage with live acts, music quizzes, street food stalls and amazing discounts on clothes and design sessions.
- Shakespeare's 450th Birthday
In honour of the famous bard's 450th birthday, Shakespeare's Globe is staging a grand birthday and Easter celebration rolled into one. Play pin the ruff on the Bard before decorating cakes, watching a traditional Punch and Judy show and finishing up by viewing an improvised performance on the Globe's famous stage.
Easter wouldn't be complete without that all important egg! Luckily, London is home to a wealth of amazing chocolateries. For a luxurious boutique experience where chocolate is taken seriously, pay a visit to Artisan du Chocolat on Westbourne Grove or Paul A Young Fine Chocolates on Wardour Street, Soho. The latter has created a special adult's only treat especially for the occasion. The Golden Egg is milk chocolate shell filled with champagne ganache and served with an elegant eggcup and spoon. The renowned chocolate shop is also creating chocolate bunnies and hot cross bun truffles for the special day.
For a slightly less refined but more eccentric chocolate experience, head to Choccywoccydoodah on Fouberts Place, Soho. The art and design focused cafe and shop creates fantastical cakes and chocolate sculptures. Their special creations for this Easter include a Choccysaurus Rex sitting atop a huge chocolate egg!
