If you’re staying in London this Easter holiday, you might be surprised by the variety of activities and entertainment that capital is offering. We picked a selection of London events, which will make your Easter break more fun than ever.
1. The Big Egg Hunt
101 giant Easter Eggs will be hidden in cities throughout the country, including London, as part of The Lindt Big Egg Hunt supporting Action for Children. It is a magical event for families, whilst raising vital funds for leading children’s charity, Action for Children. This year, the iconic Gold Bunny from Lindt will be joining the hunt, rewarding busy hunters with an amazing year’s worth of chocolate, as well as giving out thousands of Lindt Gold Bunnies and Lindor truffles – delicious reasons to join the egg hunting fun!
2. London Easter 10k Run
After a successful – but soggy – debut, the London Easter 10K returns to Regent’s Park. There will be Easter eggs and other seasonal goodies on offer, plus a medal waiting for you at the finish of this 10k race held in the splendid surroundings of London’s Regents Park. The race is a fundraiser for the Children’s Trust which provides care, education, therapy and rehabilitation to children with multiple disabilities, complex health needs and acquired brain injury.
3. Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race
