Just wanting to wish you a very happy and sunny few Easter days. We will be spending Easter in the Capital but will try to avoid public transport and stay at the periphery since major rail works will hit some of London's busiest stations (check here).
Apart from looking forward to a visit of the Easter Bunny at our house we will go to Ham House for our traditional Easter Hunt at this National Trust property. The whole family loves this place, we go there in all seasons, enjoying the space, the gardens (they have a superb kitchen garden) and the secrets around the house itself. Walk to the river and you will find a little ferry which will get you across to a huge playground and more open space. The ride is only 2 min but the kids LOVE it. Ham House itself has a very good restaurant but if you want to spoil yourself, check out Petersham Nursery, 15 min walk away. You need to book a table for lunch but they also have a cafe with a now slightly extended menu. The setting and the food are superb but very, very expensive (more about this place in a later post, promise).
Kew Gardens offer chocolate on trees, but should you be suffering from hay fever or want to avoid the sun, pay a visit to German expat Haendel's House where the kids can hunt for eggs and everybody can enjoy music performances throughout the afternoon.
