Easter is always a vibrant time of year and if you are studying in the UK’s capital and living in a student residence, London has plenty for you to enjoy – besides indulging in chocolate eggs, that is! Many events take place over the 4-day weekend but others continue for the two weeks that coincide with the school holidays.

Here is a guide to the best Easter activities in London.

Go to Church

You don’t have to be religious to appreciate an Easter church service, and when you are a guest in another country it doubles up as cultural experience, too. Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, or Southwark Cathedral are landmark venues when it comes to attending a religious service. Even if you are not a believer, these buildings will have you gasping at the incredible architecture and revelling in the ceremonial atmosphere.

Get Your Chocolate Fix

Why not join the locals and get your fill of fabulous chocolate eggs and bunnies that you can enjoy with your friends back at your student residence? London is one of the best places to indulge and with so many independent shops and high street options from Hotel Chocolat to Liberty’s, you are spoilt for choice.

Watch the London Harness Horse Parade

This traditional spectacle takes place annually on the bank holiday Monday at the South of England Showground, just outside of London. You can get the train direct and it is definitely worth the ride. The event includes a living timeline of how transportation has progressed throughout history in Britain. Seeing the working horses in action is fascinating.

The Passion of Jesus

On the Friday of the bank holiday Trafalgar Square comes alive with the Wintershall Players’ performance of the “The Passion of Jesus”. Around 20,000 people watch the two performances and the atmosphere in this outdoor theatre is electric. 78 actors take you through the story, which is free to everyone attending. A big screen is also on hand in case you end up having a restricted view.

Take a Walking Tour

For any international student living in a student residence, London may at first seem a little overwhelming, which is why we have included this option for an Easter activity. Taking a tour of the city will help you get orientated and this is the perfect time of year, weather-wise, to do it. You will have the chance to appreciate this area’s fabulous architecture, enjoy the boutiques and explore the restaurants without the hustle and bustle of the 9-5 getting in the way.

This is a wonderful time to be in London. The weather is improving, the days are longer and people are happily anticipating the arrival of summer. Make sure you make the most of Easter when in the city and join in with one or two of the activities above.
