Whether you want to go hunting for Easter eggs or burn off the ones you’ve already consumed, there is plenty to do on Easter Sunday in London. Luckily, Strand Palace Hotel is conveniently located near many of the best events. Take a look at some of the best ways to spend your Easter Sunday with us here in London.
Death by Chocolate at the London Dungeon
For an Easter darker than the darkest of chocolate, head to the London Dungeon for its Death by Chocolate act. The star of Death by Chocolate is Miss Edmonds, a sweetshop proprietor with a secret – she is using her sweet treats to poison her patrons. Strand Palace Hotel is just a 15-minute walk from this spooky Easter alternative, making it convenient to reach. Be warned though, it may put you off your Easter eggs! The London Dungeon is open between 10am and 6pm.
Kensington Palace Easter Trail
Easter comes with a healthy helping of history at Kensington Palace. Follow the Easter Trail with your children to learn about some of the prized pets the palace has played host to over the years. Kids will love hearing about how big cats and little dogs once bounded around the estate. To sweeten the deal, there will be a prize at the end for children who take on an animal-themed quiz. It’s open from 10am to 6pm on Sunday, and kids go free.
Easter Egg Hunt at Battersea Park Zoo
When we think of Easter, we think of lambs and chicks, but what about lemurs and pot-bellied pigs? Those are just two of the animals at Battersea Park Zoo who might be stashing a secret chocolate supply for you to discover. Children can walk around the park with a set of hints to help them find the chocolate, and afterward, their hard work will be rewarded with a prize. The zoo is open 10am to 5.30pm.
Easter at the London Eye
For a more adult-friendly Easter, head to the London Eye on the South Bank. Savour the Hotel Chocolate Tasting Experience with a glass or two of Prosecco as you enjoy the breathtaking views of London. Entertainment will come courtesy of Zippo Circus and a bag of treats to take home with you will also be provided. For hotels near the London Eye, look no further than Strand Palace Hotel, which is less than 20 minutes’ walk from the famous attraction. Check online for times and tickets for this decadent event.
St Paul’s Cathedral
If you wish to attend a church service on Easter Sunday, the historic St Paul’s Cathedral is a good choice. It’s one of the main centres of religious life in the UK, but most visitors come to admire its regal Baroque architecture and to check out the interesting medieval and Victorian artefacts it contains. It’s also known for withstanding the Blitz, and as the location of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding. Please note that on Sunday it is only open to worshippers.
Looking for hotels near the London Eye and London Dungeon? Strand Palace Hotel is an excellent choice. It is also well served by local transport, making it easy to connect to the rest of the city and allowing you to make the most out of your Easter weekend in London.
