Easter In London
Easter is a great time to enjoy family activities around the capital. Superheroes have never been cooler, a fact which ZSL London Zoo is celebrating with its Superpowers Trail (30th March-15th April). The route is dotted with stops where visitors can learn about animals with extraordinary abilities. Did you know the secretarybird can kick a deadly snake in the head?
For more animal action, visit London Wetland Centre (WWT) in Barnes. See otters, explore the wild areas and look for ducklings in Dusty’s Giant Duck Hunt (30th March-15th April).
Hampton Court Palace has a bunny hunt (24th March-14th April), where gold Lindt bunnies are waiting to be discovered in the grounds of Henry VIII’s Tudor palace.
An annual free tradition, The Passion of Jesus in Trafalgar Square (30th March 12pm & 3.15pm), attracts 20,000 spectators. According to producer Charlotte de Klee, the Resurrection scene is the highlight – and even if it rains, the show must go on.
While you’re in Trafalgar Square, visit St Martin-in-the-Fields. The church reopens its annual alfresco Café in the Courtyard (from 26th March), and there are free and ticketed Easter concerts inside.
Little ones can head to Shrek’s Adventure! to visit a dragon maternity ward based on the DreamWorks film, How to Train Your Dragon. London really has it all this Easter.
