The best spring activities this Easter

Our new collection is inspired by nature, and reminds us of woodland walks, carpets of bluebells and lawns sprayed with thousands of tiny daisies.  With Easter just around the corner, we’ve come up with a list of the best spring activities for families to enjoy over the long weekend:

A History of Chocolate, Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew:

Kew Gardens will be offering families the chance to learn where our passion for chocolate originated over the long Easter weekend – from the use of cacao in Ancient Maya to the finest chocolate houses in 17th century London. Chocolate themed activities will also be taking place.

Osterley Park Bluebell Walks, London:

Enjoy tours of the beautiful park to enjoy the bluebells at their best and learn about the history of this native species – Osterley Park is one of London's last surviving woods of native British bluebells.

Bunny Wood Wildflower Walk, Nottingham:
Families have the chance to see a beautiful array of spring wild flowers, take part in a children’s scavenger hunt and enjoy a guided walk of beautiful Bunny Wood.

Easter Egg Trails and Activities, Stowe, Buckingham:

Such a lovely treat for the family, Stowe are offering families exciting Easter egg hunts and treasure trails in the beautiful setting of Stowe Landscape Gardens:

Hot Cross Bun Baking, Hampshire

Weaver Walk, Staffordshire: 

This long walk takes its name from the Weaver Hills, and takes in some of the most beautiful flower-rich meadows and heathlands filled with pretty spring wildflowers.

The Southbank Chocolate Festival, London

With chocolate making workshops, displays and demonstrations, for chocolate recipes, cakes and cocktails, the Southbank Chocolate Festival also has fun events and activities for children:
