Celebrate the first Bank Holiday of 2024 in style with the capital's best Easter events

The long Easter weekend is just around the corner and, rain or shine, it’s time to get out and enjoy everything the capital has to offer. And, with four blissful days free from the office, emails and the stresses of work life, you’ve plenty of time to fill. Of course, you could grab your favourite picnic basket and head out on one of London’s best park walks – but didn’t you do enough of that during lockdown? With IRL events back in full force, London is bursting with options for a memorable weekend, from child-friendly Easter egg hunts to cocktail masterclasses strictly for grown-ups. Here’s our guide to the best things to do in London for Easter 2024.

Family fun at Pan Pacific London

Just in time for Easter, the five-star Pan Pacific hotel on Liverpool Street has partnered with luxury children’s clothing brand, Bonpoint, to help families have a bank holiday weekend to remember. From 28 March 2024, book the children’s afternoon tea (£29 per child), featuring finger sandwiches with cream cheese, ham, egg mayonnaise, grated carrot, and cheesy apple slaw. Scones with berry jam are followed by chocolate almond macarons, cherry lollipops, and orange blossom madeleines – and there’s no chance youngsters will get bored thanks to the colouring postcard and wordsearch laid out on every table.

Elsewhere, during the dedicated children’s swimming hours at the hotel’s infinity pool, children can enjoy a playful paradise with mini deckchairs, pastel cushions, umbrellas, and custom pool floats courtesy of Bonpoint, before sampling an array of spa treatments designed for six-16 year olds at the Sensory wellbeing floor. Pick from the Fairy Tale facial, the educational Awakening to Care treatment – both designed to nourish the skin and promote total relaxation – or opt for the The Dreamy Treatment for two for the ultimate parent-child bonding experience this Easter.
