The Big Smoke Bulletin: March – Easter Activities & Tourist Budgets

By Happy2Move || Posted April 1, 2016

Yippee! It’s officially Spring in London town and we couldn’t be more excited! We love Spring in the city. Buds on the trees, evenings in pub gardens, everyone getting out and about after a long, cold winter. It’s also a peak time for home-movers, which means our removals team get the pleasure of helping lots of you settle down in the Big Smoke, whether you’re moving from outside the city, or just swapping local postcodes.

This month, discover some of the best things to do in London this Easter, take a look at blogger Lucie’s favourite things in the city this month and take a Travelex Tourist day out in London on $150AUS.

Amazing Easter Experiences in London


You may have missed the Oxford Cambridge Goat (yes, goat) Race, and the long weekend’s best chocolatey treats, but there are still lots of awesome things going on in the metropolis this Easter period. From Willy Wonka-esque experiences on the London eye, to egg hunts at Kew Gardens, wonderful London blogger Paula (AKA The LND Diaries) has a whole heap of ideas for fun activities for both kids and grown ups. Deep fried Creme Egg burger, anyone?

As an Aussie now fully integrated (and then some!) into London life, blogger Erica Jean (of the being erica blog) knows exactly what it’s like when foreign visitors see their holiday money halved as it’s transferred into Pounds Sterling – and then expected to swallow London prices! That’s why Travelex challenged her to arrange a great day out in the city on $150ASD. The results? Well they were fabulous (thanks to Erica’s great ideas and awesome planning) – take a look for yourself on her blog.
