BEST THINGS TO DO IN LONDON OVER EASTER FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

The Easter holidays are upon us and we are slowly coming out of hibernation, grasping onto any signs of spring. From afternoons spent at the pub to families coming together to enjoy this extra family time, the city truly knows how to make the most of an extra day or two off.

The Easter weekend, in particular, is a sweet deal — not only a religious celebration demanding indulgence in chocolate and hot cross buns but also a rare double bank holiday, providing a luxurious four days of work-free folly. For families and friends, you can find enchanting Easter egg hunts, immersive experiences for all ages and delightful chocolate escapades, the city promises an unforgettable Easter break for all. To make the most of this joyous season, we’ve curated a list of the best things to do during Easter 2024 in London.

Key Dates for Good Friday and Easter Sunday 2024

Mark your calendars for the Easter weekend in 2024. Good Friday bank holiday falls on 29th March, Easter Sunday on 31st March and Easter Monday bank holiday on 1st April — no joke!

Easter Opening Hours and Transportation in London

Both Good Friday and Easter Monday are public holidays, and while most attractions typically remain open over the Easter bank holiday, it’s a good idea to check with individual places especially for Easter Sunday. Be aware that public transport services, including the London Underground, may experience reduced schedules between Good Friday and Easter Monday. 

Here are some of the best things to do in London for the whole family over Easter:

For the main bar area at The Orange, @georgie_pearman chose the colour ‘Clove’ created by interior designer Edward Bulmer. A spicy warm beige packed full of natural pigments to heat it up and really wrap the colour around the space.
This complex and grounding neutral perfectly complements the convivial atmosphere of the pub’s central space.

Visit @theorangepublichouse the next time you’re in Belgravia and step into the ambience of Clove #CubittHouse #LondonPubs
This month's #DishWithTish is a delicious Summer salad of roasted peach, pistachio, mint, dill, watercress and salted sheep’s cheese.

Inspired by the Eastern Mediterranean with contrasting flavours and textures. Roasting peaches this way intensifies their natural sweetness and flavour (it’s also good with ice-cream!)

Chef Director, @ben.tish says - ‘I like to layer this on a platter as opposed to a bowl for a visually beautiful presentation- a centrepiece even. Excellent with grilled pork or lamb'
