What’s on for families in London over Easter

Hippity, hoppity Easter school break is on its way. For most of us mums, we are looking at two (plus) weeks with our children. In addition to stuffing faces with chocolate eggs, there are many splendid family friendly activities happening in London to keep the tribe happy until school returns. Here are some of our top picks…
