Top Easter Activities in London – A Scrumptious Easter and a Magical Experience

It is a bonus to have Easter coming during the months of spring. To make it extra special add the fact that it is a holiday and that there is always plenty of chocolate to go around.


Easter Egg Hunt

As spring is in full bloom and the weather turns to blissful from chilly, the time comes for you to foster your sweet tooth. Properties administered under the National Trust usually hold Easter egg trails annually. Though they are mainly to cater to kids who exclaim in glee as they reach hint after hint before finally being rewarded with a scintillating Easter egg, it is quite common to see parents and young adults joining in the fun. Fenton House, Morden Hall Park and Sutton House are among the popular locations to rampage through in search of the chocolate treats. The clues are hidden carefully in various parts of the sprawling gardens of these properties and each clue that is unraveled brings the hunter closer to the grand prize crafted by a master chocolatier. The adventure is fun, exciting and a great encounter with nature where everyone gets to wander under trees, rummage in bushes, hop over trickles of water and hobnob with some creatures, occasionally with a surprise visit by an Easter bunny.


Theatrics and Musical Extravaganzas

If there is a Belgravia Hotel London, a theatrical performance cannot be too far away as producers like to draw foreign crowds and touring locals for their performances. Cinderella, Velveteen Rabbit, Elves and the Shoemaker and a selection of handpicked well loved children's tales are featured in the theatres. Musical extravaganzas and art exhibitions also come to life during the months of spring and usually coincide with the Easter holidays. Those who stay in and around London including at COMO the Halkin, London rarely miss the performances at Leicester square and thereabouts. Occasionally, you might find street performers entertaining passersby with their antics, tricks and singing, adding much needed vibrancy to the lovely London air.


Duck Hunt

The Giant Easter Egg Duck Hunt is a hunt with a twist; those who usually seek clues and hints on a trail towards a chocolatey egg are given a new challenge of hunting down large yellow plastic ducks that are hidden in the marsh and bushes. The London Wetland Centre opens its doors to attract youngsters to its premises for this novel experience. The wetland reserve spans over almost 30 hectares and is considered a site of specific scientific interest. This makes the expedition in search of ducks an educational tour through the wetland and the reward for spotting these ducks is nothing short of a delicious chocolate egg.


Chocolate Stops

No matter how much chocolate you receive or consume during Easter, the thought of more of itsjust sounds more alluring. Feast your eyes and treat your taste buds to some mouthwatering milky brown comestibles that delight all your senses. Most of the chocolate shops would sell egg or bunny shaped chocolates in the true spirit of Easter, but their flavours and add ons would vary from nuts to rice crispies to praline and even Turkish delight.
