Your guide to the Easter bank holiday with Wembley Park

Easter weekend is around the corner and it means one thing - a four day weekend!

Whilst it may be our second Easter weekend in some form of lockdown, it doesn't mean you can't celebrate and still have a weekend to remember. Thankfully, Wembley Park has a whole host of ways to celebrate from pocket park picnics, art-induced sunny strolls, yummy food and so much more. We've compiled a list of some of the best ways for you to make the most of your long weekend this Easter bank holiday.

Did you know Wembley Park is full of free public art for everyone to enjoy? With vibrant murals, playful light installations, interactive artwork and celebrity hand prints, Wembley Park's Art Trail makes the perfect afternoon activity. Whether it's with your family for some daily-exercise or meeting up with a friend for a much-needed catch-up, why not grab a coffee and take a stroll past the neighbourhood's varied and unique public art. Follow this Public Art Trail to make the most of your day together, and see some beautiful and thought-provoking pieces.

With lockdown rules changed, the rules on outdoor mixing have changed. You will be allowed to enjoy a picnic with members of your household or one other person from a different household - and Wembley Park is the perfect place for this. No matter what kind of cuisine you’re in the mood for, Wembley Park has tasty takeaways that will have you craving more.

One of our favourite Wembley Park things to do is grab a takeaway from one of the BOXPARK Wembley vendors or Pasta Remoli Wembley and dine in the grass or on a bench. After being cooped up all winter long, you're sure to enjoy some handmade pasta in the sunshine. You can see a full list of Wembley Park restaurants offering takeaway here.

For some more chilled out playing, head to Elvin Gardens where your kids will climb for hours around the honeycomb frame.
