It’s the first bank holiday of the year on the horizon, they’re treating us to a whole 4 days, and we’re treating you to the perfect itinerary to fully exploit London’s finest and funfest Easter events.
Ahead of the family activity ahead it’s time for some relaxation time for the adults, The Dolphin Square Spa adds “The Moroccan Chocolate Delight with Afternoon Tea”, to the treatment menu this Easter. It’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon, dripping in sweet delights and holistic spa treatments. The Moroccan inspired spa will see you start the ritual with a steamy Hammam to cleanse toxins. Before the skin is exfoliated using orange blossom salt scrubs. All of this in preparation for a full body massage using silky chocolate honey balm. The afternoon is finished off nicely with a Moroccan inspired Easter afternoon tea in the recently refurnished restaurant. An afternoon set to turn even the sweetest of moments into a moment of well-being for the body and mind too.
For the young kids and the big kids alike, our old time favourite, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory has come to the stage. The musical, performed at Theatre Royal brings Roald Dahl’s creations to life and inevitably delivers a whizz-popping Willy Wonka Show.

Kew gardens have teamed up with The Roald Dahl museum in celebration of the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Musical. Hosting various events over the weekend, notably Sunday April 20th, which see’s Kew’s Easter egg hunt begin. Children (and the occasional adult) rummage the gardens for fair-trade and organic chocolate eggs hidden amongst the grounds. There’s Willy Wonka’s pop up invention room and chocolate bar creation workshops on offer. Roald Dahl’s revolting rhymes are on repeat in the television room, you can have your photo taken in the glass elevator, or you can even have a go at dressing Oompaloompas. It’s not just an appealing day for the kids but with it being the peak of Spring the garden is a bloom with hundreds of daffodils and crocuses flowering.
It’s with optimism that we undoubtedly plan our Easter weekend in hope of spring sunshine. Londoners can escape the traffic jams and get their spring sunshine fix at the Kensington rooftop gardens. Where children are given the chance to unearth chocolate eggs in the 15-acre gardens. What’s more parents are given the chance to relax on the rooftop with a cocktail as the children are under the Easter Bunnies supervision for this activity. Dinner is served with special set prices for the kiddies on offer too, it’s the place this Easter to please both adult and child alike.
