This Easter, do something exciting with your time off! We’ve picked some of our very favourite activities to do over the bank holiday weekend. :)
The Big Eggstravaganza!
If you’re London based, you will almost definitely have seen the large eggs dotted all over the capital. The Big Egg Hunt is over now but you can still see the eggs in all their glory, all together in Covent Garden! Highly recommend popping down to see them (there are 209 so it’s quite an amazing sight!) and there are lots of other activites going on, including paint-your-own sessions in the pop-up shops, See the Artist and giveaways! There are lots of lovely little places to find lunch in Covent Garden, so a great excuse to grab a scrummy spot of lunch while you’re there!
The online auction for the eggs closes at 5pm on Monday 9th April, so hunters have a chance to own a piece of one-of-a-kind art!
Check out www.thebigegghunt.co.uk or simply stroll down to Covent Garden anytime before 9th April!
Head to the Isle of Wight!
Go and get creative at Chessell Pottery situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the west of the Isle of Wight. Go and decorate your own pottery (fun for all ages!) and enjoy some scrummy food at the award winning Courtyard Café where you can experience the ‘Ultimate Island Cream Tea’.
