Love spring with these Easter events in London

There is plenty going on in London this Easter to keep the whole family entertained during your serviced apartment stay.

You may have noticed already that #SACOlovesspring. That’s the hashtag that we and many of our customers and followers have been sharing on social media. It’s a great opportunity to show the wonderful things we love about the UK at this time of year, when nature is going through a period of renewal and the weather (hopefully) starts to look up.

To continue with this trend, why not share some pictures and videos of your time in London if you happen to be enjoying a serviced apartment stay in the capital this Easter? There’s loads going on, so you’re bound to get some great snaps. Here are a few ideas:

The Passion of Jesus – Trafalgar Square – April 14th

Now an annual feature of Easter celebrations in the capital, The Passion of Jesus is a large-scale re-enactment of the religious story, complete with a menagerie of animals. It’s a great way to remind the kids that Easter isn’t just about chocolate eggs and fluffy chicks and the Wintershall Players do a fantastic job, with more than 100 actors involved.

Two performances are scheduled for Good Friday – one at 12 noon and the other at 3.15pm. No tickets are required and the action lasts for around an hour and a half.

Christathon X – The Trinity – April 16th

It’s funny what captures people’s imaginations, but a Jesus Christ-themed pub crawl around the capital on Easter Sunday has become so popular it’s now celebrating its tenth year. The premise is a simple one – dress up in Jesus garb, including a sheet, beard and wig and make your way to pubs with a religious link – with all the proceeds going to charity.

Meet at The Trinity in Borough at 1.45pm and the route continues from there.

Easter Egg Trail – Fenton House – April 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th

You can feel a bit better about the kids filling themselves with chocolate if they’ve spent the day searching out eggs in the great outdoors, while running off a bit of steam. There’s nothing quite like a good Easter egg hunt and the trail at Fenton House makes use of the extensive gardens and many nooks that act as hiding places.

The trail costs £3 on top of the general admission price of £6.50 for adults; £3 for children; or £16 for a family.

Easter Chocolate Workshop – My Chocolate – April 13th, 14th and 15th

If simply hunting for eggs isn’t enough and you’d rather get properly stuck in, head for My Chocolate, where you can learn to make your own Easter treats. From eggs and chicks to marble effects, there’s loads of things that can be fashioned out of cocoa and doing it yourself makes the results taste so much sweeter.

Sessions cost £50 per person.

Horniman Easter Fair – Horniman Museum – April 15th and 16th

A whole load of Easter activities all in one place sounds like the perfect solution as to what to do for Easter in the capital. From an Easter egg hunt to a special Alice in Wonderland-themed storytelling experience, there’s plenty to charm visitors of all ages to this fair. There will also be a number of stalls to peruse, so if arts and crafts are your thing, then you’ll be kept perfectly happy.

The fair is free to enter, but some of the activities charge a small admittance fee.
