There are plenty of things to do with children in London, especially on Easter Weekend.

But, as you know, tickets sell quick and there’s nothing worse than seeing those big, disappointed eyes looking up at you as you realise you should have booked ahead. That’s why, to make things easier, we’ve done some research and found some of the best and most exciting events come up soon.


Go to a chocolate-making workshop

Where: The Chocolate Factory
When: numerous dates

Chocolate making

If you’re entertaining little ones this Easter, then definitively check out The Chocolate Factory in Brixton.

Here you can make chocolate eggs, decorate lollipops, and get your hands on lots of goodies to take home afterwards. Sharing is caring, right?

We have it on good authority these classes are filling up quickly. So we suggest you get booking as soon as possible.


Visit the Horniman Museum and Gardens

Where: Horniman Museum and Gardens, Forrest Hill
Whenopening times vary (you can check on their website, though)

The Horniman Museum and Gardens is the perfect spot for a lazy weekend picnic or Easter Sunday. The views are gorgeous, there museum boasts a superb collection of specimens, and you can visit the petting zoo on your way out. Did we mention they have llamas too?

The Horniman is likely to be busy on Easter Sunday (there are a few different events on) and parking will likely be tight. We’d recommend arriving nice and early.


Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt

Where: Hampton Court Palace
When1-17 April 2017
This has to be one of the best ideas for entertaining kids this Easter.
Set in the picturesque gardens of Henry VIII, this bunny hunt promises plenty of chocolate and — judging by their website — some theatrical reenactments straight from the Tudor period. We’re not sure why this is included in a children’s Easter event, but you’d be mad to miss it.

Battersea Park Children’s Zoo

Where: Battersea Park Children’s Zoo, Chelsea
When: 4-14 April 2017

Spring is the perfect time to get up close and personal with baby animals. Lucky for your little ones, Battersea Park Children’s Zoo has pulled out all the stops this Easter.

There’ll be hidden eggs within the enclosures (please don’t let them climb inside, though) and the chance to cuddle bunnies whilst wearing bunny ears too. It’s so sweet it’s practically sickening. The kids will love it.
