Make the most of the Easter weekend in and around Chiswick with these five great places to visit, from the gorgeous gardens of Chiswick House to food markets, theatre and more
1 Chiswick House and Gardens
A beautiful respite from city life, sometimes we need to pinch ourselves that this gem is actually right on our doorstep. With the House reopening its doors in March, it’s the perfect time to amble through the flower gardens and introduce your little ones to nature.

2 Chiswick Food Market
Come rain or shine, Chiswick Food Market is open, offering up a diverse selection of food for all the family. Fun and lively, the many different stalls can help you spice up your palate and find the ideal treat for Easter dinner. Whether you’re craving lamb tagine, fresh baked bread or homemade ice-cream, this market will have it.

3 Angie’s Little Food Shop
A particularly bright spot in Chiswick, Angie’s Little Food Shop offers breakfast, brunch and lunch. The menu is fresh and delectable, including gluten-free cakes, and the South African ceramics that decorate the walls are available for purchase. This is a must-visit for brunchers with some time off over Easter.

4 The Questors Theatre
Just opposite Walpole Park in Ealing, The Questors Theatre is one of the largest amateur playhouses in Europe. With a wide and quickly changing variety of shows, the theatre promises a lot of fun over the Easter break, such as with the likes of Annie Jr, an abridged version of the award-winning musical.
12 Mattock Lane W5 5BQ; 020 8567 0011; questors.org.uk
5 Outsider Tart
This American-style bakery serves up lovingly decorated cakes, decadent brownies, whoopee pies and much more. It’s the perfect place to get a dangerously gooey treat during the Easter holiday. There’s also the ‘Barkery’, their homemade selection of dog treats. If this is a dog’s life, then we are in.
