How to spend your bank holiday in London
If you’re looking for something different to do on your four-day weekend, take a look at our recommendations below.
Take a pottery class at Hackney City Farm
Our new neighbours on Hackney Road are experts when it comes to clay. On Sunday they’re holding classes with no need to book, just turn up and be ready to get your hands dirty. The farm is usually closed on Mondays but they’re opening their doors this bank holiday. Make sure you say hello to the goats.
Visit the palm house at Kew Gardens
The weather isn’t set to be perfect this weekend, but Kew still makes for a lovely day out in the conservatories. The iconic Victorian palm house, pictured above, becomes even more enchanting with rain pattering against the glass roof. This Easter, Kew is holding a Peter Rabbit themed adventure with activities and treats along the way.
Step into 18th Century England at Dennis Server’s House
Book yourself onto one of the evening tours in the heart of Shoreditch, just a ten minute walk from our Curtain Road development. On Friday and Monday this bank holiday you’ll be able to experience life in an incredible merchant’s house 200 years ago.
See how Wes Anderson’s latest film was made
With the release of Isle of Dogs this week, a free exhibition has opened at The Store at 180 The Strand. If you’re a fan of his work, don’t miss the chance to see 17 of the original hand-crafted sets and puppets up close.
Have a meal at Shoreditch’s newest restaurant, Rascals
Just two doors down from our development on Curtain Road, The Hudson, is Ballie Ballerson’s latest endeavour. Rascals has nailed food and cocktails with a menu that features roasted aubergine to die for. But the winning dish has to be the steak – our mouths are watering just thinking about it!
Experience the circus at Aeronaut
We’re very excited about having our Gunnersbury Lane site just a few minutes walk from this eccentric pub in Acton. This bank holiday they’re hosting a special one-off show where fire meets martial arts. It’s the sort of place where your ice might melt before you remember to sip your drink. There’s a lot to feast your eyes on.
If you visit any of these attractions this bank holiday, we’d love to hear about it. Let us know on our social media channels.
