Activities For Easter Holiday

Living in London means there’s never a shortage of things to do, or events going on! Here are some cheap, fun and interesting days out for you and the children to finish the last week of your Easter holiday.

For Those Rainy Days


The London Transport Museum is filled with interesting facts, vehicles and there is an exciting new play zone designed for children aged 0 to 7 years and including the Baby DLR! This is where kids can get into the driving seat of a real bus, they can repair a mini Tube train, play in the ‘Lost Property’ office, sail the Thames Nipper, serve folks in the Nipper cafe and much more!

The Grant Museum of Zoology is an old fashioned museum packed with specimens, some of which are curious and bizarre. The museum gives children the chance to explore history, science and is great for children (and adults) with an interest in all types of animals.

Themed Tours

Love all things Harry Potter? Join the Harry Potter London Bus Tour for a magical adventure where you can visit original film sets, view famous landmarks around London and take a day out of Mugglesville and into the world of Witches and Wizardry!

Take a tour around Shrek’s Adventure in London’s South Bank! The tour includes a unique walk and ride attraction for the whole family, the wonderfully immersive kingdom of Far Far Away and enjoy a thrilling madcap Shrek adventure with rides, donkey’s storytelling, animation and special effects! “It’s an amazing visit for kids of all ages – and grown ups love it too!”


For A Sunnier Afternoon


A walk around our local canals, forests and lakes give parents a chance to unwind and children a chance to play in nature! We’re very fortunate to live in East London, where we have many chances to spend time in nature and easy access to such beautiful locations. Here’s a top pick of local parks, canals and forest walks:

Hollow Ponds

Epping Forest

Farm Visits

Farms are always a brilliant visit, a chance to meet some animals and learn a bit more about our agricultural systems in England. Hackney City Farm is easy to get to on public transport (via the Central Line), they offer pottery workshops, children’s workshops and educational activities, voluntary work and sponsoring an animal!
