The Big Egg Hunt - All Around Central London

This week marked the start of Faberge's Big Egg Hunt, in lots of locations around central London.  200 artists including Rankin, The Chapman Brothers, Bombas & Parr, Nicky Haslam, Vivienne Westward and Sarah Foskett have been commissed to paint one giant egg each.  These are hidden around London for the 40 days between Shrove Tuesday and Easter, and then will be auctioned off for The Elephant Family and Action for Children.

The maps tell you where the eggs are - and to be honest it sounds like a bit of a ruse to get you to visit lots of shops and different districts.  Since this site is all about getting you out and about in London to do different things, there's nothing wrong with that...

Find the 12 zone maps here - zones include Mayfair, Knightsbridge, Piccadilly, Carnaby Street and South Bank - print them out and get searching.  Lots of fun for kids, especially.

You can also buy the eggs on the site - bids start at £300.  Remember, only one of each has been made.

When - 21st February - 31st March

Where - All around Zone 1
