Denham Country Park
With 69 acres of parkland to play with, Denham Country Park is a great choice for exploring the great outdoors as a family. You can choose to tour the visitor centre or perhaps enjoy a drink and snack in the café, or even do some paddling in the river. Just a short walk away is the Grand Union Canal where you can watch the riverboats float by. All that’s left to wish for is some sun to make it even more enjoyable!
Hampton Kempton Waterworks Railway
A great one for little trainspotters, you can step back in time and visit the 1915 heritage narrow-gauge railway and the Kempton Steam Museum. There’s lots of historical education on how the railway and the pumping engines helped to provide clean drinking water to London in the early 20th century. There’s also an Easter Egg Hunt happening on the 17th of April.
No matter what you choose to get up to during the Easter break, remember that being together as a family is what counts and your little ones will enjoy spending quality time with you. Put down your phone, stop looking at work emails etc and give them your undivided attention. Model Esha Gupta @eshaagupta2811 puts it plainly with this quote: “You need a strong family because, at the end, they will love you and support you unconditionally.”
