Easter Eggs


Become a chocolate detective, follow the Easter bunny and hunt down some scrumptious chocolate treats. Many of London's stately homes and townhouses lay on special hunts and trails with a chocolate treat at the end. Happy hunting.


Easter Egg Hunt at Kew: Shaun the Sheep

Shaun the Sheep and his real life friends come to Kew for its annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Kew Gardens (Royal Botanic Gardens), Kew, Richmond, London, TW9 3AB

Tube: Kew Gardens Station


Dates: 05th April 2015


On Sunday 5th April 2015 join Shaun the Sheep and his real life friends, on holiday from Wakehurst, Kew's sister garden in Sussex, for Kew's annual Easter Egg Hunt. Kew comes over all sheepish with Shaun's Madcap Meadow, a springtime meadow of British wildflowers, seasonal bulbs and grasses where they'll be hosting wellie wanging, the Sheep Hopper Maze, where kids can bounce around a maze of hay, and Bitzer's Sheepdog Trials where you can help herd, bounce and roll Shirley back into her pen. Pop-up stores in the meadow also give you the opportunity to create your own Shaun the Sheep with a Shaun the Sheep toolkit, and there's the Spring Lamb Springtime Trail where you can work out who Timmy, the baby of the flock, has been bouncing around with among the spring bulbs. A fun trail for kids and adults alike, see how many spring flowers you can identify and discover what is waiting for you at the end of the trail.


Easter Egg Hunt at Cutty Sark

Win a family ticket to Camp Bestival.

Cutty Sark, King William Walk, West Greenwich, London, SE10 9HT

Tube: New Cross Station (East London line closed. Bus service operates)


Dates: 03rd - 06th April 2015


Join in the Easter Egg hunt at Cutty Sark and you could win a family ticket to Camp Bestival but don't worry if you don't win, all participants get a free Easter treat at the Even Keel Cafe. Designed like a treasure trail, the Cutty Sark egg hunt tasks children - and adults - with finding eggs hidden around the ship. In addition, children aged 7 to 11 can book in for Cutty Sark's first ever sleepover this Easter. They can enjoy games and storytelling, learn how to hoist the flags and find out about the stars over the ship with a Royal Observatory astronomer. If you're in Greenwich, it's also worth noting that the National Maritime Museum has several exhibitions worth seeing: Against Captain's Orders, Punchdrunk's groundbreaking new show invites 6 to 12 year olds to climb aboard HMS Adventure; and the spectacular Astronomy Photographer of the Year exhibition has been extended until July 2015.


Easter Egg Hunt at Ham House

Kids can scamper around the formal gardens of the 17th-century Stuart mansion.

Ham House & Gardens, Ham Street, Ham, Richmond, London, TW10 7RS

Tube: Richmond Station


Dates: 03rd - 06th April 2015


Ham House is a stunning backdrop for Easter fun and games on the banks of the Thames, but with chocolate on the brain it'll be scrumptious rather than sumptuous that your tots will be interested in. Still, while the kids scamper about hunting down eggs in the maze-like wilderness, the Cherry Garden with its famous lavender parterres is a lovely feature of these charming formal gardens for parents to enjoy. This is a top family day out - it feels like you're a million miles out of the big city and you'll be able to while away hours, even after the chocolate has been found, wandering through the trees, playing hide 'n' seek and generally enjoying the gardens, especially if it's a clear spring day. If the weather doesn't hold up you can always venture inside the house - you may need to bribe the little ones with even more chocolate for this but the fine, elegant interiors of this 17th-century Stuart mansion are worth it.
