Start the day with brunch
Relax into Sunday morning with a leisurely brunch in pretty surroundings. Sip on pink lattes and nibble on vegan cakes at Palm Vaults, one of London’s most Instagram-worthy cafes. Or feast on brunch classics from poached eggs to pancakes in the plant-filled conservatory at Bourne and Hollingsworth Buildings.
Alternatively, put on your best dancing shoes and head to Hip Hop Brunch. Enjoy bottomless cocktails as you listen to classic tracks and chow down on a 3-course meal featuring southern staples like fried chicken.
Hit the Sunday markets
London's Sunday markets are worth getting out of bed for. Pick up some beautiful blooms at Columbia Road Flower Market and find bargains galore at Brick Lane Market, where stalls sell everything from food to vintage clothes, crafts to furniture
Explore London's waterways
If you prefer your feet firmly on dry land, take a stroll strong along the Regent’s Canal between Little Venice and Camden Town, with plenty of opportunities for pit stops at waterside pubs and cafes on the way.
Become a culture vulture
Many of London’s museums are open on Sunday, so head over to South Kensington for a day of discovery. Hear T. rex roar in the dinosaur gallery at the Natural History Museum, travel through space in the IMAX cinema at the Science Museum and admire five centuries of evening dresses at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Settle down to Sunday lunch
Enjoy the British ritual of a Sunday roast. For the ultimate traditional experience try Simpson’s in the Strand, where carvers wheel trolleys to the table and slice sumptuous pieces of beef onto your plate. For a more casual affair, snuggle up beside log fires and tuck into Sunday lunch after a ramble on Hampstead Heath at The Holly Bush.
Alternatively, while away a Sunday afternoon by munching on dim sum. Stuff yourself with unlimited dim sum at one of London's Ping Pong restaurants or savour the special Sunday menu at fine-dining restaurant Hakkasan.
See a show
Make the most of London's lively entertainment scene – laugh out loud at The Comedy Store, dance to live music until the early hours at The Blues Kitchen, nestle into a comfy armchair as you watch a film at the Electric Cinema, or head to the West End for a Sunday matinee of a top show such as The Lion King or Matilda.
