Happy Easter from FlatClub

We hope everyone has a lovely time with friends & family - and if you're staying with one of our London hosts over the long weekend, make sure you try at least one Cadbury Creme Egg, an English tradition around this time of year.

Keen on Easter outings in London?
No need to hunt them down like Easter eggs! We found some top events going on in the city that are sure to make you a happy bunny.

Easter at the Roof Gardens - Great fun on tap at the Kensington Roof Gardens for kids & adults alike. The chocolate is being provided by whimsical London chocolatier Choccywoccydoodah, and kids searching for eggs have the chance to win a giant one to be enjoyed by the adults in the family, too. While the little ones search for eggs, adults are welcome to relax with a specialty cocktail in the beautiful roof gardens and watch the great hunt from afar.

Fryhard - Looking for something a bit more fun, indulgent and...fried? Fryhard is a special fried food pop-up going on over Easter Weekend at Boxpark in Shoreditch. The innovative pair LondonMess & Miss Cakehead will be frying up Creme Eggs, cupcakes, and an entire Sunday Roast dinner. Plus, so much more. Totally worth checking out - free tickets, and prices for the food starts at just a £1!

Selfridges Easter Egg Hunt - Kids will go crazy searching through Selfridges hallowed 4th floor for Easter eggs, and parents will happily eat any leftovers as they're provided by Charbonnel et Walker, the queen's preferred chocolate. Purchase a chocolate egg to take home with you - a huge variety can be found here.

Regent Street Easter Cocktail Hunt - Not traveling with kids, or you just need a break? Head down to Regent Street for an Easter hunt that is most certainly for adults only. Bars along the famous shopping street are serving up special Easter cocktails, including many interpretations of Creme Eggs as boozy drinks. Go on and treat yourself - after all, it's a holiday.

The London Dungeon "Death By Chocolate" - You didn't expect the London Dungeon to have anything less than a macabre Easter experience, right? This year, we recommend not eating the chocolate offered to you by Miss Edmonds, the Victorian proprietor of a poisonous sweet shop. Explore the rest of the London Dungeons and learn about some of the darker points in the cities history, all the while munching on free violet cremes that, we have been assured, are not poisonous.

We hope whatever you do that you enjoy the long weekend. What goes on in your home city around Easter time?
