When children have an extended holiday from school, parents often like to treat them to special days out, but it can be tough to know exactly where to go and what to do sometimes.
London is a particularly brilliant choice for a family day out at any time of the year, thanks to the wealth of attractions it boasts, but this Easter it has something extra to offer.
There are a host of exciting Easter-themed events taking place across the capital, with some of these being held by rather unusual venues. Make your trip even more special by staying overnight in a luxury hotel in London, to give you and the kids an extra treat. Easter Egg Hunt at The Roof Gardens The Roof Gardens, which is attached to the wonderful Babylon Restaurant, is a hidden gem off Kensington High Street.
The restaurant and gardens are located several storeys above the hustle and bustle of the streets, providing an oasis of calm in the urban landscape.
As well as stunning views from the restaurant and the gardens, you can enjoy decadent meals and – for mums and dads – some wonderful cocktails. Little ones will certainly love searching for Easter treats in among the exotic plants in the Spanish garden, giving parents the opportunity to relax and soak up the atmosphere with a delicious cocktail in hand.
Alternative Easter Egg Hunt at the Design Museum. If you want your Easter-themed day out to have a more educational twist, take your little ones to the Design Museum. This establishment is running two trails over the Easter weekend – one specifically for under fives, who need to look out for bunnies around the exhibitions, and one for older children, which involves finding the answers to clues to gain access to a mystery world.
Both trails run through the Hello, My Name is Paul Smith exhibition, which will be on show until June 22nd 2014. The installation covers Paul Smith’s career to date, as well as looking at his world-renowned fashion label and offering a glimpse of future projects – all of which is bound to be of interest to parents with an eye for design.
