London lines up lotsTreat yourself and join in the fun on Pancake Day in London this February. Pancake Day falls between 2 February and 9 March, depending on the date for Easter. In 2017, Pancake Day falls on Tuesday 28 February.

 

In the Christian calendar, Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, is a traditional feast day which precedes the 40-day fasting period of Lent that lasts until Easter. Pancake Day became a great way to use the foods that were given up for Lent: milk, butter and eggs.

 

As well as eating pancakes and crepes, there’s a long tradition of pancake races in London which often raise money for charity. Enter your team into a race or cheer on the participants from the sidelines, as they toss pancakes in a frying pan while trying to complete the course as fast as possible.

 

Tuck into a Pancake Day feast at one of London’s best pancake restaurants or creperies, and look out for special Pancake Day menus in restaurants and cafes across the capital.
