Quintessentially’s Easter Holiday Activity Recommendations
Looking for ways to keep your children entertained this Easter? In London, there are a variety of engaging and enjoyable activities for all ages and all budgets to get the family out of the house and enjoying every day!
Top family activity ideas:
- Hampton Court Palace’s Magic Garden is offering children a new and unique way in which children can get excited about history and explore the palace’s past. Each area of the garden represents myths, legends, stories and even real objects that can be found at Hampton Court. Once you have ticked everything off in the garden, it’s the perfect opportunity to discover those real objects in and around the palace.
- For little ones, be sure to visit the London Southbank Centre to the Soundpit, where through play, children and adults can explore their individual sense of sound, vision and touch. For those interested in art and music, and those who simply enjoy sensory play, this is a fun, interactive experience.
- For older kids, Junkyard golf in Old Truman Brewery has four 9-hole crazy golf courses with flashing lights, UV lights and music. It is a great place to meet with friends when the weather isn’t great. Under 18s are only permitted at certain times so make sure you check beforehand.
- At Kew Garden this Easter holidays, there is a whole range of activities to do with the kids; from storytelling to creative workshops. You can join in for Story time, where you will explore the big questions about biodiversity and the delicately balanced relationship between people and plants. You can explore the Tower of Colour, in which you will decorate ornaments with UV pens and learn all about how light and colour spectrums help plants grow. Or you can explore outside along the Log Trial or the Woodland walk; follow the raised trials through some of Britain’s best love native trees and plants, whilst spotting ladybirds, centipedes and spiders at the same time.
For those animal lovers, SEA LIFE London have recently launched their state-of-the-art Augmented Reality Artic experience, Polar Adventure. Prepare for an expedition like no other as you journey through spectacular icy landscapes across the North and South Pole; where you’ll meet the awe-inspiring animals from beneath and above the ice. Sensory effects like an interactive ice-covered environment, chilly polar breeze and the Northern Lights bring the Artic to life.
