Battersea Power Station Pier is one of the hottest Easter destinations in town! Families can enjoy a host of free Easter-themed activities at Battersea Power Station until Monday 18 April, including an Easter Bunny Egg Hunt, a petting zoo and maze, outdoor games and more. There’s further Easter fun to be had in neighbouring Embassy Gardens and Nine Elms Park, where an Easter egg hunt will be laid on Thursday 14 April to Saturday 16 April. Adventurers will be on a quest to discover hidden egg posters, starting out from popular local restaurant Oxeye. Each poster will contain secret letters that together make up a password, giving clues to a delicious chocolatey treasure to be claimed on return to Oxeye.

Continue down to Greenwich pier for some Easter fun at the historic sailing ship Cutty Sark. Rumour has it that Cutty Sark’s chickens have escaped and laid eggs in some strange places, kids are invited to hunt for them around the ship – and will kindly be repaid in chocolate for their efforts! Whilst aboard the impressive vessel be sure to enjoy a brand-new rig climbing experience and enjoy special views of the Thames and London. Elsewhere in Greenwich, kids are invited to knock down bunny skittles at The Skittle Egg Challenge held at Old Royal Naval College until 18 April.

Hunt for even more fun by alighting at North Greenwich Pier for Up at The O2. A series of special Easter sessions are set to take place. Climbers will get the chance to decorate delectable biscuits at the summit of the roofwalk, located 52m above ground! This will take place twice daily at 10:00am and 10:15am from Monday to Friday until Friday 15th April. With extended time at the summit, kids and adults alike will be able to create confections of different shapes and sizes – including biscuits shaped like Easter eggs.
