Hampton Court Palace

No Easter egg hunt guide is complete without a Lindt gold bunny. And you’ll find Hampton Court Palace the ideal place to begin your hunt for this famous rabbit.
This Easter hunt is suitable for children between 4 and 12 and weaves in child-friendly historical stories from the palace into the Easter egg hunt. And you’ll also get to explore the stunning Hampton Court Gardens.
This event will be a popular choice for tourists and London residents looking for things to do in London with kids, so you’ll need to book in advance. On the day, the hunt should take you around an hour and a half, so allow plenty of time for your visit.
You can also save money on the entry price by becoming an annual member of the Royal Palaces. A year’s family membership starts at £82.
Address: East Molesey, Surrey, KT8 9AU

London Wetland Centre

Here are some easter egg hunts in London with a twist! In keeping with the bird theme for the Wetlands Centre, this trail will get your children looking for some very special ducks (hint: they are very bright and very yellow).
The wetlands are a fantastic day out for bird lovers. They have some fascinating wildlife, including the colourful mandarin duck. Children will also get a chance to participate in a feeding session or pond dipping.
The centre also has indoor and outdoor play areas for children with energy to spare, so it’s a good choice if the weather forecast isn’t looking great.

This trail is free for current members, or you can pay for a family ticket which will cost around £40.30, although children under four gain free entry.
Address: Queen Elizabeth Walk, Barnes, London, SW13 9WT

Osterley Park

Osterley Park is a National Trust property, so their Easter egg event this year is ideal if you are already a member. And it’s also perfect for those of you who want to spend some time in nature while keeping the kids entertained.
Children will receive a colourful trail pack with a pencil and map, and there will be a chocolate reward for anyone who makes it to the end.
Osterley Park is a grand Georgian house with pristine gardens. In Spring, you’ll get the chance to see their fields of bluebells, or you can simply sit by the lake for a relaxing picnic.
There are play areas for children, including rope swings, to keep them busy after they finish the Easter hunt.
The trail is open from 10 am to 4 pm from 14th to 18th April 2022. The ticket for the hunt is £3 per child after the park entrance fee. A family ticket for non-members who want to visit Osterley park is £32.50 upwards.

Kew Gardens

Who doesn’t love the Very Hungry Caterpillar? Your younger Easter adventurers will be full of enthusiasm for the classic book theme of this trail, set in the beautiful Kew Gardens.
While you won’t find eggs on this hunt, this enjoyable trail takes families through a path displayed with some fantastic sculptures that you’ll recognise from this timeless tale.
Adults, meanwhile, can delight in passing by the spring tulips and daffodils that brighten up the path. At the same time, your young explorers discover the ending of this story (spoiler: it’s a butterfly).
The Hungry Caterpillar trail is open from 2nd to 18th April 2022. Family tickets start from £25.30 (with a donation), but you’ll pay a higher price at the gate if you don’t book in advance.
Address: Kew, Richmond, London, TW9 3AE

 

Hogarth’s House

Historic Hogarth House, restored eleven years ago, is home to a vast collection of Hogarth artwork. The house also includes a learning centre and a gorgeous landscaped garden.
In the Mulberry garden of this famous house, children will begin a memorable day of Easter egg hunting in London.
This activity is great for creative minds, as children will enter the learning centre after the hunt for an arts and crafts workshop.
There, they will be able to decorate their eggs. And they will even get the chance to make an Easter egg basket.
This egg hunt happens on the 9th of April. It is for children from 5 to 11, and spaces are limited to 12 children per session. It is £15 per child, and you’ll need to book in advance.
