Easter 2019, from Good Friday on 19th April to Monday 22nd April, gives us a four-day weekend and London has everything from egg hunts to church services, family fun and major exhibitions, all the right ingredients for a cracking Easter break in the city.
You hear Easter, you think chocolate! Earn your eggs this Easter with a visit to one of these fun and family-friendly Easter egg hunts here in London. Spot the eggs amongst the beautiful scenery of various National Trust properties or enjoy a day with the animals at Battersea Park Zoo. Whatever you choose, it’s bound to be tasty!
Now a regular addition to Easter in London, The Passion of Jesus is a recreation of the story of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, put on for free for the public in Trafalgar Square on Good Friday. Not to be outdone by the scores of Easter egg hunts and other events across the city, Trafalgar Square hosts this special adaptation giving viewers the chance to get to grips with the story at the heart of Easter. Featuring a cast of over a hundred, all donning period costumes, a donkey and horses, the 90-minute show attracts up to 20,000 people for each of its two performances at 12noon and 3.15pm and undoubtedly has a big impact on the watching crowds as they witness the tale of Christ’s betrayal by Judas and his trial before Pontius Pilate.
As also you can drop into almost any London church on Easter Sunday and the whole of Holy Week for quiet contemplation and raise-the-roof hymn singing. We’ve highlighted just a few on the website.
