Greenwich is jam-packed with Easter activities this semester – perfect for the whole family.
From egg and spoon races to creating your own solar system, Greenwich offers plenty of adventurous activities to enjoy Easter.
The News Shopper has rounded up five fun family events to enjoy this Easter holiday:
1. Strive to Easter Adventure Quest at Eltham Palace and Gardens
At Easter, explore Eltham Palace and Gardens for clues and challenges, while taking part in traditional Easter games like egg and spoon races.

The quest is available every day during school holidays and costs £1.50 – on top of normal entry prices.
2. See a planetarium stargazing show at the Royal Observatory Museum
Why not head to the ONLY Planetarium in London and watch Starstruck, a live show presented by an astronomer.
The show aims to explore the lives of stars, from birth to death, while answering fascinating questions about the twinkling lights we see in the night sky.
While at the Royal Observatory, you can explore the history of the museum, such as standing on the historic Prime Meridian Line and marveling at one of the largest telescopes in the UK.
Starstruck will air daily during the Easter holidays at 3:30 p.m.
3. Adventure through the woods with The Gruffalo at the Greenwich Theater
Join Mouse on an adventure through the dark, deep woods in the musical adaptation of the picture book, The Gruffalo.
