Easter is the best excuse for eating chocolate for a whole weekend without feeling guilty, or going for an Easter egg hunt. No matter how you celebrate Easter, there is no doubt that hunting down chocolate has become a famous tradition in the UK. In fact, 80 million Easter eggs are sold in the UK yearly.

Let the good times roll, because we are bringing you the most traditional things to do over Easter in the United Kingdom.

Easter Egg hunt

There is evidence that even Queen Victoria used to do egg hunts in Kensington Palace when she was a child in the 19th century.  

You can be a part of easter egg hunts in parks, castles, historical places or many restaurants in London. These public events are organised with clues and puzzles that will help participants to find delicious treats. There are always plenty of activities for kids like  workshops, face painting and easter trials, to mention a few.

Hampton Court Palace

Follow the hunt trail maps that will take you to the Historic Royal Palace and its famous gardens. Those whom solve the quizzes and discover the famous characters of the statues of the past will win (Spoiler Alert: The winners get a Lindt Gold Bunny!)

The National Trust

Bunnies had been hiding eggs all over the UK. Join the nature trail organised by Cadburys and The National Trust. They are also organising activities for kids, like crafts, games or face painting.     

Check their website to find the event location nearest to you.

London rolling eggs
