Easter Egg Hunts Taking Place Around The Capital
Thu 24 Mar 2016
Put your sleuthing skills to the test and join one of the trails in search of the chocolate egg.
National Trust Easter Egg Hunt
The National Trust have partnered with Cadbury to offer egg hunts at many of its historical London properties over the Easter weekend. Use the Cadbury website to find one near you, but we suggest Sutton House for its curious caravan, Fenton House for its ancient walled garden or Red House for its wombat trail.
Museum of Brands
This vast collection of branded wrappers, toys and other paraphernalia has moved to a new home in Notting Hill. They're currently offering half price entry over the Easter weekend and will be running an Easter egg hunt, object handling sessions, vintage games and advert screenings.
This museum-based hunt leads intrepid Easter fans around the Design Museum's current exhibition, 'Cycle Revolution'. It's free with museum admission and each participant gets a gift at the end. An Easter colouring competition will also be running (March 25-28), and the trail is available from 10am-5.45pm on Sunday March 27th.
Battersea Park Children’s Zoo
The Battersea Park zoo will be running Easter egg hunts between March 25-28. Spot all the multi-coloured eggs in the animal enclosures and fill in a quiz sheet to win a prize. On Good Friday (March 25th) children can help the zoo keepers to prepare egg-shaped feeds. Activities are free with admission.
Brixton Windmill Treasure Hunt
People armed with a camera, pen and paper and a map of Brixton can take part in this treasure hunt that celebrates the Brixton Windmill's 200th anniversary. The hunt takes in 50 sites of interest in and around Brixton. There's even a small cash prize for the winning team.
