Spring Vacation in London with Kids: Fun Activity Ideas
April is Easter and blossom time in London and its wonderful green park. London in spring is wonderful for a family vacation and taking the kids away for an English adventure in the fun neighborhoods, festivals and discovering the great parks. From game festival to chocolate desserts and circus, your kids (and you!) will simply love the following fun things to do in England’s capital.
Normally one saves the best for last, but we simply had to share with that Easter is in April, and while you could go egg hunting, you could also celebrate by visiting in London’s best chocolate cafes. On 1-2 Royal Arcade in posh Mayfair neighborhood you will find Charbonnel et Walker, founded in 1875, one of the first and best chocolatiers in Britain, and with the Royal Warrant to Her Majesty The Queen. For the ultimate family experience, try one of Rococo Chocolates making experiences, in Covent Garden or Marylbone, close to home!
Turn Family Game Night into a Festival
From April 2nd to April 14th, London is hosting a Games Festival, interactive and video games across 30 London venues. Games Character Parade is on April 6th, Saturday, starting at 12:30pm. Best days to visit are April 4th – 6th.
Underbelly Festival returns to London, April 5th to September 29th, circus, children’s shows and more fun for the entire family, including the biggest London bar, in Capital Tower.
International Pillow Fight
We simply can’t imagine anything as fun as a pillow fight in a great English park, and the world agrees. Sunday, April 7th, is the international pillow fight day and this year it will take place in Allen gardens, right next to Brick Lane Sunday market and London Eye, so you could enjoy both and have a fantastic family Sunday in London.
