Easter in London 2023

A double bank holiday, chocolate for days and plenty of springtime activities – maximise Easter weekend 2023 in London

Ask any Londoner what the vibe is on bank holidays and they’ll no doubt agree that it’s absolutely bloomin’ marvellous. From blissful drinks in the park to glorious day parties and some of the year’s biggest and best club nights, this city sure knows how to make the most of an extra day or two off. Even the weather somehow always seems to pull through with dazzling sunshine.

London’s bank holiday energy is off the charts – and Easter weekend is a particularly sweet deal. Not only is it a religious holiday that demands you eat as much chocolate and hot cross buns as humanly possible, but it’s also a rare double bank holiday. Meaning, yes, you get four whole days of work-free folly.


Easter weekend this year runs from Good Friday on April 7 to Easter Monday on April 10. And, as always, those four days are packed full of stuff to keep you busy. Whether you’re after afternoons dazing in sun-glazed parks, extended Sunday pub lunches, evenings at the theatre – London this Easter bank holiday weekend has you covered. Here are our top picks below.
