Wine and dine your way through Easter Sunday Lunch
If Sunday afternoons generally are best whiled away over a long boozy lunch, then that's particularly the case over the Easter weekend.
However, come the weekend we always find we're left with the same question: where to go?
A good bet is the Angel & Crown on St Martins Lane in Richmond, where the seriously good Sunday lunch menu features the likes of devilled whitebait, half pints of prawns and potted Devon crab (fresh from Billingsgate Fish Market) and mains of braised rabbit leg and roast Scottish salmon fillet.
For something south of the river, the Crooked Well in Camberwell is a-m-a-zing. You'll want to keep an eye out for pub regular Florence Welch. Meanwhile, a lazy Sunday at The Rosendale in Dulwich is never exactly a bad idea.

Escape the city
It might seem a little perverse to suggest getting out of the capital for the weekend as one of the best things to do in London at Easter, but The Crown in Amersham is still on the Tube line, so it doesn't really count as leaving the city at all, right?
An Ilse Crawford-designed coaching inn in the lovely old village of Amersham, you just have to hop off at the end of the Metropolitan line to get your country weekend fix. It's worth for their set Sunday lunch menu which serves anything from roasted Wiltshire beef, pan-fried plaice and pecorino and black olive gnocchi.

Feast on chocolate
One thing we don't like about Easter is the fact it encourages everyone to think chocolate should be celebrated just one day a year. Here at ELLE, we have a better idea – celebrate it all day, every day.
This Saturday, head down to the Duke of York Square near Sloane Square after 10am, where you will find an Easter Chocolate Market.
Sample the finest artisan chocolate eggs, chocolate-coated fruits and handcrafted vegan chocolate from the likes of chocolatiers including Simply Handmade Chocolate, Aztec Chocolate and Lavolio and stock up on all your favourite pralines, milk chocolate nibbles and dark chocolate ganache.
Find out more at the Duke of York Square Facebook page.
Book yourself into a stylish hotel
ELLE's favourite townhouses – Dean Street and Zetter, to name but a few – are the perfect places to wine, dine and sleep at over Easter Weekend.
Whether it's one of 39 townhouse bedrooms in a typical Georgian residence and the signature afternoon tea of scones with homemade preserves and clotted cream at Dean Street, or the boutique surroundings of Zetter's award-winning cocktail lounge (you get a complimentary cocktail on arrival if you book direct) and cloud-like pillows, you'll find it hard to rip yourself away from these hotels for work come Tuesday.
Go mad as a hatter at Afternoon Tea
Afternoon might be a pricey luxury at the best of times, but when it's Easter you kind of get a free pass to eat as much as you can, splash the cash on fine chocolate and indulge on every hot cross bun, Easter egg tarts and roasted lamb slices in sight.
So, why not wolf down some chocolate scones, unlimited mugs of hot chocolate and devour homemade Easter eggs at some of London's finest afternoon teas including May Fair Kitchen's Charbonnel et Walker-inspired menu, St Martins Lane's Chocolate Dreams, the Sanderson's Mad Hatter's afternoon tea party and The Montagu's new Green & Black's Chocola-Tea?
