It’s almost the Easter weekend and the thought of having four whole days to fill is getting me rather excited! But, before we get carried away, let’s find out what there is to do – to make sure you make the most of the break! There’s some brilliant stuff on around London so check out my favourite finds below…
It’s flown around again to the annual Cambridge Oxford Boat Race – a great excuse to get out on the river banks of London and support your favourite posh uni (I’m Team Cambridge all the way!). There’s plenty of tents serving pimms and posh nosh and big screens everywhere. Click the link above to choose your best spot on the route but last year I chose Hammersmith Bridge and it didn’t disappoint!
Alternatively, if you fancy more drinking and less walking, head to Shoreditch for the Cambridge and Oxford GOAT Race! I’ll say no more…
Up for something a bit random? If you head up the O2 between 10am and 2pm on Saturday, there will be actors performing your favourite bits of Shakespeare plays! Just book a climbing slot as usual on the website to get your slice of Romeo and Juliet!
The weather may not be great for some of the weekend so why not take cover at the cinema? Batman v Superman comes out on Friday and looks amazing and High Rise came out recently and has the gorge Tom Hiddlestone in it – what more do you need to light up your Bank Holiday?!
If you’re up for a traditional Easter Egg Hunt – there’s plenty happening. If you have little people, why not head to Battersea Park Children’s Zoo for furry pets and chocolate or, for the big kids, Brixton Windmill Treasure Hunt for real cash prizes (!!)
For those as obsessed with home ideas as me, the Ideal Home Show will be on over the Bank Holiday so head down to the Excel in The Docklands to get some inspiration, in the form of jellyfish shaped lampshades and in-house saunas…
Another cool activity if you have kids is the immersive London Eye experience – where, as you’re heading round, there are storytellers and interactive games… If I had kids, I would be all over this!
Last but not least, head to Blackheath for their Circus! With acrobats and cat tricks (that’s right, CATS doing tricks) I think this one is a must-see. It’s also a great area to grab some food and drinks afterwards.
Well, the list is endless – we almost need another Bank Holiday to get through all of this… With trickster cats, boats and lots of chocolate, I wish you all a Happy Easter!
