To Do List Daily: Easter Things To Do in London – Fri 25 – Mon 28 March
Here are some divinely different Easter Things To Do in London for this long weekend – it’s not all about the chocolate bunnies and eggs!
We’ve tried to avoid the obvious Easter Egg hunts etc. in favour of supporting some of the sensational independents helping bring Spring to life! The weekend’s weather is looking a bit peaky, so we’ve included lots of under cover picks…
