Cracking ideas for the ultimate bank holiday weekend in London

Prepare for the first in an exciting season of spring bank holidays with our guide to things to do in London this weekend. Plan a jam-packed few days or unwind and schedule some well-deserved rest.

Things to do with kids

  • The search is over for ways to keep the kids entertained over the holidays. Hop on down to Hamleys for its Lindt chocolate bunny hunt, Easter Fete, visits from Peter Rabbit and more
  • Whether you’re a guest at Hotel Café Royal or booked in for its exemplary Easter Sunday lunch, get ready for cuteness overload in its Easter petting area filled with fluffy and furry friends
  • Treat little ones to their first afternoon tea with a tailor-made experience at The Langham

Pick up a personal Easter gift

  • It's no longer only a choice between milk, dark or white chocolate eggs. From chocolate lamb sandwiches to boozy truffle-filled eggs, explore our favourite Easter eggs on Regent Street  
  • Treat someone special (or yourself) and shop for spring staples from this season's new collections along the mile of style

Where to book for Easter Sunday lunch

  • There's no shortage of restaurants near Regent Street serving up a traditional Sunday roast. Just arrived at Oxford Circus? Head to The Wigmore on Langham Place. Closer to Piccadily Circus? Reserve your table at Hawksmoor on Air Street or Gaucho on Swallow Street. Special mention goes to relative newcomer to our neighbourhood, The George
  • Share a herby poached salmon for a Danish twist on Easter lunch at Aquavit. We can’t wait to try its Arctic Bird’s Nest – creamy goat’s cheese served in a honey tuile with zingy raspberries and edible flowers for the ultimate springtime dessert

Get active and enjoy the outdoors

  • Grab something to take away from Hagen or another of our favourite London coffee shops and claim a spot in the sunshine in nearby St James’s Park
  • Or why not let Fortnum & Mason take care of it and pick up a picnic hamper for one of our local green spaces.
  • Planning adventures beyond London? From sturdy walking boots to sunglasses, a new water bottle and the backpack to carry it all, get the latest gear from The North Face
  • Don’t let the weather put the brakes on your plans. Invest in the right cycle accessories and keep the good times rolling with Rapha
