Spring is fast approaching, and Easter is just around the corner! If you are planning to spend the holiday season in London, here are some travel tips from Heathrow Express on what to see and do in the city bursting with excitement and festivities. 


Indulge in an Easter themed afternoon tea


London boasts some of the world’s most scrumptious afternoon tea spots. No Easter celebration is complete without indulging in delicious, mini sweet treats! Treat yourself to an Easter-themed afternoon tea at London’s Charlie & The Chocolate Factory Afternoon Tea experience at One Aldwych. Fizzy lifting drinks, snozzberry jam, chocolate swudge milkshake mixed by waterfall – are just some of the decadent Roald Dahl inspired treats you can feast on.



Explore London’s Easter Markets


Nestled in the city of London, visit Covent Garden, Borough Market and Southbank Centre Food Market to discover delectable treats and a vibrant atmosphere. Browse what the stalls have to offer, from artisanal goods, iconic gifts and of course the sweet treats. Don't forget to hunt some freshly hot cross buns – a yummy treat this Easter!


Rent a boat in Paddington and cruise along London's canals


Hire a self-drive boat and ride along the famous Regent's Canal whilst indulging on an Easter picnic. Take in the views along Paddington Basin, Little Venice, and Maida Hill Tunnel. With the boats holding up to six people, this is a wonderful way to spend Easter with the family whilst discovering London’s hidden gems. 


Hunt the Lindt Gold Bunny at Hampton Court Palace


Embark on an adventure with the family to discover the hidden gold bunnies nestled in their hiding spots across the grounds of the infamous palace.
