We can think of no better place to enjoy the Easter period than our own vibrant, individual, cosmopolitan Marylebone. Here is a selection of fun, interesting and tempting ideas to enjoy this Easter:
Embrace your inner child and enjoy a modern take on the traditional afternoon tea at the Mad Hatters Tea Party at The Sanderson Hotel. The experience down the rabbit hole is one you will never forget. Kids big and small will thoroughly delight in the inspired treats the Chef has intricately designed: the menus placed within vintage books, riddle-wrapped napkins, homemade ‘marshmallow mushrooms’, ‘tick tock’ sponge clocks and ‘jelly wonderlands’ amongst the three tier set of indulgent sweet and savoury treats paired with a range of unique teas served in fabulous teapots by Luna & Curious. Just don’t get confused between the tea and ‘Drink Me’ potion……

There are many interesting walks through Regents Park including the Bird Walk starting at Clarence Gate in Baker Street, heading over the bridge towards the lake. You can get close to wild birds and view huge varieties including Whooper, Mute Swan, Ruddy Duck, Heron, Wagtail and Pipits. Optimum time to catch sight of birds flying over the park is the first few hours after dawn. Then continue heading towards Inner Circle and you’ll be ready for a welcome coffee and pastry at the Regents Bar and Kitchen (open from 8am)!
