Make like the Easter Bunny and hop on and off the Thames this Easter

London is hosting a basket full of top Easter activities for the whole family this Easter. Explore all the capital has to offer with London’s leading River Bus service, Uber Boat by Thames Clippers, and a Family River Roamer ticket – allowing for unlimited travel between all 24 piers along the Thames.

Begin a day’s Easter exploration at the Old Royal Naval College, a short walk from Greenwich Pier. Here the whole family can learn about Easter traditions through time, complete a cunning set of seasonal activities, and collect a delicious chocolate prize.

Sail into central London with Uber Boat by Thames Clippers, taking in guaranteed stunning views of London’s iconic riverside attractions. Head out on to the open back deck for fresh air and the best spot for photos and visit the onboard café-bar to enjoy the range of Easter treats, lunches, and hot and cold beverages.

Nearby Embankment Pier, in Covent Garden families can explore the relationship between London and its green environment at the London Transport Museum. Through poetry, science and storytelling workshops learn about the power of plants and discover the history of the museum’s home as Covent Garden’s former flower market. Those peckish after the museum can venture south of the river to London Eye (Waterloo) Pier and stroll through the Southbank Centre Food Market for a huge choice of street food and drinks

Head further west and hop off the River Bus at Battersea Power Station Pier to take part in arts and crafts sessions, plus little ones can unleash their inner-Easter Bunny at the Trampoline Play Centre. Alongside the ticketed trampoline activities, kids can go wild with face painting, giant Connect 4 and bumper cars, while over a hundred shops, bars and restaurants are to be found inside the Power Station. At the ticketed SmileyWorld® inspired arts and crafts sessions, families can get creative and design their very own Easter bonnets and friendship bracelets.

Just a short distance across the river from Battersea Power Station Pier, awaits a botanical-themed Easter trail at the Chelsea Physic Garden. Kids can lead the way through the Garden’s beautiful spring flowers, following a map that leads to plant-based facts, and earns them that all important chocolate treat for completion. While in Chelsea, keep an eye out for the 12 egg sculptures that form part of the charity Elephant Family’s free Little Egg Hunt.

All Uber Boat by Thames Clippers services offer a comfortable way to travel through London, with easy ramp access for buggies, and plentiful seating. The regular River Bus services operate across 24 piers throughout the capital, all the way from Putney in the west to Barking Riverside in the east. An All Zones River Roamer costs just £44.20 when booked online, and is valid for 2 adults and up to 3 children.
