This can be more than just an Easter adventure: use the trail to discuss London's history, practise map-reading and get egg-designing.

What else?

Why not add a visit to the Museum of London? After exploring today's city, take students back to the Roman era and the Blitz. Use Volvic42's London landmark factsheets to embed some history into your hunt or study the Great Fire of London with comickits' DIY strip.
