My six year old has asked me every day for a whole week “when are we going on our Easter Egg Hunt mummy?” The boy is chocolate mad and obsessed with becoming a spy, so Easter Egg Hunts are literally the best thing ever. We usually opt for a local one over the Easter weekend and one in the garden on Easter Sunday but our garden is currently a building site due to our kitchen extension so we’ll have to forego that one this year! So, I thought I’d write up my research into Easter Egg hunts in and around London so you can find your perfect one this Easter!
