Easter is coming and that means four days of no school, work or any other commitments. To make the most of this time we have got a few suggestions on how you could spend the Easter holidays in London.
Start your Easter weekend with a spectacular enactment of Jesus’ last days. More than 100 actors will bring this biblical story to life showing tragic scenes such as the crucifixion of Christ. There are two 90 minute performances at Trafalgar Square, at 12 pm and 3.15pm, which are free and also shown on big screens to make sure that everybody can see.
If you would rather celebrate your long weekend and party, you don’t have to wait for the evening but can start the party at the Willy Wonka Easter Brunch Party @ Bunga Bunga Battersea, from 11.30am to 7.00pm. Dive headfirst into a sweet fantasy world that will give you a sugar rush for days and enjoy a decadent brunch with an amazing after party.
If you are still in the mood then you can go directly to the next party at The Prince of Wales Brixton and celebrate their Easter Special on the roof & in the club, from 4 pm to 4 am. Dance to 80’s Disco, Hip Hop, Soul, House, New Wave, Rock and more.
What could possibly cure that hangover better than an Easter lunch at Sky Garden? Enjoy the fantastic view while you enjoy your Easter meal! Celebrate Easter on top of London and have a delicious lunch.
Saturday is all about sports! You could start by visiting your favourite pub and watching the football match; West Ham United vs. Southampton at 3.00pm and then go on to watch the boxing match Joshua vs. Parker at 11 pm. Parker is putting his WBO belt on the line while Joshua is defending his WBA and IBF titles in a winner-takes-all fight.
If you are not into watching sports you can get active yourself and dance the night away at Wanderlust Bank Holiday edition @ Cargo till 6 am! Tickets from Club Classics, R&B, Hip Hop & House all night long!
The Easter weekend church service at St.Pauls Cathedral (starts 10.15am, free, nearest tube station: St Pauls station) is one of London’s most beautiful (both the service and the church are a must see), Southwark Cathedral (starts 10.15am, nearest tube station: London Bridge station) or on Monday at Westminster Abbey (starts 8.00am, 10.30am, 3.00pm, nearest tube station: Westminster).
To continue with the Easter traditions why not attend one of the numerous Easter egg hunts in London?
Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt: Go on an Easter egg hunt fit for a royal at Hampton Court Palace, which will be choc-a-block with fun activities for all ages. Once you’ve searched Henry VIII’s grounds for all the Lindt Gold Bunny figures, you’ll be rewarded with a suitably sweet treat. But the chocolatey fun doesn’t end there. You can learn about what sweet treat Princess Caroline favours, from the lady herself, but more eggcitingly are the hot chocolate making and ceramic cup decorating workshops, £19.20, 11:00 am.
“Hunt the bubbles” Easter hunt: If you find a champagne bottle, you get a FREE HOTDOG, and if you snatch up a mini hotdog, you get a FREE GLASS OF BUBBLES, 27/03 – 30/03. You need to follow the hints they are going to give on Twitter and Instagram. Follow these steps: 1. Snap it: Post an image on social media tagging #HuntTheBubbles @bubbledogsuk, 2. Follow @bubbledogsuk, 3. Claim it: Bring your tag into bubbledogs from 27/03 – 07/04
Finish the Easter weekend with a relaxed stroll through London’s beautiful parks and watch the Spring flowers blossom. You can see the cherry blossom and get the spring feelings started at St. Paul’s Cathedral and Kew Gardens or visit Hampton Court Palace and St. James Park to see the lovely daffodils blossom at the beginning of April. At Cannizaro Park (Wimbledon) and Battersea Park, you can also see wonderful crocuses. So get your coat and enjoy the beginning of Spring!
