Easter at The Athenaeum

Join us at The Athenaeum this Easter for some Easter-inspired chocolate experiences that promise to be bags of fun for the whole family. Our Afternoon Tea will have a few chocolatey twists for the occasion, plus a giant chocolate Easter egg in our lobby will be smashed up by all our kiddie guests as Easter draws to a close. We’ll also be running an Easter Egg Hunt in Green Park for families staying with us on Easter Sunday.
