A well-deserved four day weekend is on the horizon, and with weather in London this weekend expected to eclipse holiday hotspots across Europe, this Easter holiday is gearing up to be a good one.
The options are endless when it comes to how you should spend your first bank holiday of the year in London. From Easter-egg hunts, iconic London bottomless brunches, delicious Easter Sunday lunches and a plethora of beer gardens across the capital, there’s so much to fit into the long weekend.
Easter egg hunt
GoBoat London is the only self-drive, powered boating experience in central London. The mission of GoBoat London is to make the canal waters accessible to all those who live in and visit London.
This Easter, GoBoat is hosting an Egg Hunt for all bookings made during the Easter school holidays. You and your group of up to eight people will be provided with a map to help you spot the giant Easter Eggs along the canal. To claim your prize simply photograph as many as you can, there are 12 to find.
With four glorious days off work, the long Easter weekend is the perfect time to indulge in a boozy bottomless brunch.
For bottomless brunch with a side of live music, head to The Piano Works, London’s only non-stop live audience requested venue. Both the West End and Farringdon branches are hosting a Bottomless Aperol Spritz Brunch on a number of bank holidays throughout the year, starting with Easter Sunday on 21st April. For £50, guests can enjoy two courses of brunch classics washed down with bottomless Aperol Spritz, Bloody Mary’s, Italian pink sparkling wine, prosecco or mocktails. Dishes include eggs Florentine, Royale and Benedict, pancakes, and waffles.
Easter Sunday Roast
Tucked away in a quiet residential street north of Clapham Common, this charming, understated gastropub does a cracking roast dinner within the cosy confines of its cute duck-egg blue bar and dining room. Choose from a slab of slow-roasted pork belly with homemade apple sauce and crackling, half a roast corn-fed chicken with bread sauce or the pièce de résistance: roast sirloin of beef with creamy horseradish and Yorkshire pud – plus all the trimmings. Starters and desserts take inspiration from Italy and France, with occasional Brit intruders such as apple crumble.
The creme-de-la-creme of beer gardens, The Prince in West Kensington. Part swanky bar, part glorified trellis, The Prince plays host to a variety of street food vendors eager to provide you with the perfect accompaniment to your chosen tipple. No need to panic if there’s a drop of rain either, as the garden has a retractable roof keeping the sunshine in and the rain out.
The Prince also offers their own take on a boozy brunch, with two sittings at 12pm and 2:30pm, with bottomless bubbles and bloody marys for £20
