Easter's always a confusing holiday; the dates can change drastically, so you'll need to be organised when it comes to visiting family and taking time off, especially if you have children.

Easter falls on Sunday March 27 this year . The long bank holiday weekend begins on Good Friday (March 25), and Easter Monday (March 28) is the final day in the bank holiday festivities.

And we'll have loads of ideas for what to do and where to go over the Easter holidays, so that you and your children are never bored.

But before all that there's definitely one thing you need to know - when the Easter holiday starts and finishes.

Here are the essential dates for your diary:

Hillingdon : Easter holiday is from Friday March 25 to Sunday April 10

Ealing : Easter holiday is from Friday March 25 to Sunday April 10
