It may come as a surprise but there are actually some small farms buried throughout London. Spitalfields City Farm has animal welfare at its core and they offer free entry to all guests, where you can meet a variety of animals such as donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs, and even a ferret. While you’re there you can also visit their farm shop where they sell organic produce, or their tea hut that sells hot drinks as well as ethically, locally sourced food.

If you’re in the city with the family for the weekend, an Easter egg hunt is a must. Kensington Palace have brought back their Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt this year. As you follow the trail and find the golden bunnies, you will uncover stories about different characters and if you find them all you’ll win a prize! Pre-booking is advised, but you’ll also get full access to the palace.
