With plenty of local options available this weekend, an easter egg hunt could be just the thing to take the eggs-citement (and sugar) outdoors.

Here, Twickenham People rounds up five events for families to eggs-plore. Most of these run over the whole holiday weekend and don't need booking but check website links (provided) for up-to-date info and pricing.

1. London Museum of Water & Steam's Easter Steam Up

Make your own Easter bonnet and join an Easter Egg trail taking you through the history of London's watery past at the London Museum of Water & Steam this weekend. The museum's locomotive, Thomas Wicksteed, and the Shand Mason Victorian Fire Engine, will also be in steam along with a collection of Cornish and rotative water pumping engines.

Adults £11, children £5.

Doors open: 11am.

2. Osterley Park and House Cadbury's Easter Egg Trail

Kids will receive a make-it-yourself pith helmet, a Trail Journal containing all the clues they need to complete the trail and an Eggsplorer Passport to be stamped along the way, as well as a Cadbury Egghead. Explore the gardens where you can spot flowers and wildlife, or have fun on rope swings and build a den at the play trail as you try and crack the clues on your own Easter adventure.

Normal garden admission & £3 per trail. National Trust members free & £3 per trail

Gates open: 11am; Last admission time: 4pm.

3. Ham House Cadbury's Easter Egg Trail

Follow clues around the garden to win a Cadbury's Egghead.

Gates open: 10am; Last admission time: 4.30pm; Last trail 4.30pm

All Tickets £3 (per trail plus normal admission).

4. Easter at Hampton Court Palace

Join the festivities as Hampton Court Palace launches its 300th anniversary celebrations of the Georgian era. From the arrival of King George 1 on board the Royal Barge Gloriana, dancing white horses, Georgian chocolate making demonstrations and an Easter trail, there will be lots to entertain.

Adults £18.20, children under 16 £9.10. Members free.

5. Bouncing Bunnies at Strawberry Hill House

Turn yourself into an Easter bunny by making bunny masks and ears, then have fun bouncing around the garden.

Booking not required, just drop by the house any time between 12.30pm and 3pm. There is a small charge of £2 per participant.

Under 8's must be accompanied by an adult.
