Rain or shine if you are looking for things to do in London in the Easter school holidays then this is the guide for you.

  1. Check out one of these tee-riffic crazy golf spots.

  2. Have a gruesomely cool adventure at The Clink Prison Museum.

  3. Tick off all the gorgeously green country parks in and around London.

  4. Try making your own wand at Wands and Wizard Exploratorium with this magical London activity.

  5. Get out of the city and over to Hobbledown Adventure Farm. There's plenty of Easter-themed adventures to hop on over for.

  6. And if farms and animal sanctuaries are your thing then flock over to one of these urban picks around London.

  7. Looking for something a bit different? Then dive into this guide if it's a quirky day out you're after.

  8. And then walk the plank over to our review and guide of H.M.S. Belfast: an interactive adventure sure to float the family's boat.

  9. We always love raven about the Tower of London, so read our guide and then book some tix. Easter events at The Tower include pop-up performances and timed animal hotspots across the day as part of its zoo-themed activities which are centred around the wild, weird, and wonderful beasts once kept there.

  10. Museums are far from boring in this guide full of the best ones in London for families.

  11. Did you know that London has its very own Wetlands? Spring is a wonderful time to visit WWT London Wetland Centre which will be bursting with newborn wildlife, bugs and buds. There's also a special Easter GIANT Duck Hunt happening.

  12. Not sure the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child show is suitable for your muggles? Read our review before ticking this one off your London bucket list. We also recently watched the theatrical version of Frozen which is perfect if the cold never bothered you anyway.

  13. Soggy days aren't going to ruin our fun thanks to this guide of indoor activities in London that the weather can't ruin. Let's hope it's a tad warmer by the Easter holidays though!

  14. If the sun does put in an appearance then we also have a guide to fabulous outdoor activities around town.

  15. A hair braiding class for kids you say? Yep, little ones can join a cool two-hour session to learn how to French plait, fishtail and perfect ponytails with Hair Braiding Masterclass. Sessions are happening in Brentwood, Upminster and Loughton.

  16. Have you seen London aboard a speedboat yet? We highly recommend whizzing down the river with the mahoosively cool Thames Rockets!

  17. Get involved with some most egg-cellent fun at Kensington Palace or Hampton Court where the hunt for the Lindt Gold Bunny is back on in an Easter egg hunt with a difference.

  18. Fancy ticking some restaurants off your 'must try' list? Well, we've got a guide to family-friendly ones, a guide to the best burgers in London AND a guide to the most wonderful dim sum spots in town.

  19. If you're heading out into the Essex countryside at all, Hopefield Animal Sanctuary is well worth a visit and is re-opening just in time for the Easter holidays, and its got a special Easter Event happening on Easter weekend itself. Fun and good deeds all rolled into one charming activity.

  20. Kids got some pocket money burning holes in their pockets? Then this guide to the toy-tally awesome toy shops in London is for them.

  21. A history lesson with a hilarious, horrible twist is making a splash back on the Thames from 1st April, and we can't wait! Yep, The Terrible Thames Tours are back for a third season and we know that your kids will love it as much as our kids did.

  22. Talking of holes in pockets, if the child-sized hole in your own wallet is getting too big, try this guide to things to do in London for FREE. Our favourite word.

  23. A slight shift from free, we've also got a guide to things to do in London with kids that will set you back less than a tenner per person.

  24. Shrek's Adventure! London is a great place to ogre-dose on fun during the school holidays, and it generally has seasonal events happening too. We had a most shrekcellent time hanging out there recently so do read our review.

  25. Older kids will want in on this adventure into the skies: we tried Up at the O2 and loved it.

  26. Not content with just climbing things? How about throwing yourself off things too? We would highly recommend a tour of Tottenham Hotspur FC combined with its Sky Walk and The Edge abseil. We tried it on your behalf and love, love, loved it (even though we're not massive footie fans).

  27. Wherefore art thou, family fun for Easter holidays? At the Globe, of course! From interactive storytelling to family workshops there's always something wonderful happening at Shakespeare's Globe.

  28. London's only theatre barge, The Puppet Theatre Barge, is currently moored in Little Venice and there's a brand new production, The Blue Pool of Questions, for all ages fusing puppetry, storytelling and live music happening now and all through Easter.

  29. Peter Rabbit and his friends will be in Covent Garden for the Easter holidays and this live, immersive outdoor experience will see Beatrix Potter’s much-loved characters i let loose in one of Central London’s most picturesque and iconic locations

  30. Stomp over to the Natural History Museum for its brand new for Easter exhibition, Titanosaur: Life as the Biggest Dinosaur.
