Easter holiday activities

Everyone’s feeling the pinch – so jetting off to the Bahamas may be out of the question. But don’t worry, there are lot’s of eggciting things you can do at home (South London). Here’s our top 10 guide to Easter days out:

Dulwich Picture Gallery

1.      Royal Wedding

The marriage ceremony between Prince William and Kate Middleton is sure to be one of the biggest events of 2011. Whether you’ll be in a right royal frenzy, or simply want an excuse for a party, why not attend a street party or organise your very own Royal Wedding tea party?

2.      Dulwich Picture Gallery

If your little ones are budding art critics, take them along to the first public art gallery.

3.       Battersea Park Zoo

There are plenty of Easter delights such as trails and more special events centered around the wild creatures who call the zoo home.

4.      Zippo’s Circus

Take your little clowns to the big top at Blackheath Common over the Easter weekend. The show will feature an acclaimed ringmaster, clowns and dare-devil acrobats.

Dinosaurs Unleashed

5.       All Fired Up

This ceramics cafe is a great place for families to enjoy their time together. Paint one of the many ceramics on offer – there’s no need to book and you can stay as long as you like.

6.       Southwark Libraries

Southwark Libraries celebrate Easter with lots of fun activities for young people. This includes activities such as Easter egg hunts, making Easter cards and games.

Fancy a special Dino-Egg Hunt this Easter? Spend the Easter bank holiday weekend with creatures that predate the spring festival at the Dinosaurs Unleashed attraction at The o2.

Family Fun at Kew

8.       Southbank Centre
