London Pancake Day 2023

Pancake Day falls on Shrove Tuesday each year — the last Tuesday before Lent. Since Lent is a period of abstinence, it’s traditionally associated with cleaning out the cupboards of sugar, fat and eggs — the perfect ingredients for pancakes.

This year, Pancake Day falls on 21st February.

Where to eat pancakes on Pancake Day

To celebrate you can either make your own pancakes or you can head out for a pancake at your favourite pancake shop. Looking for something a little different? Check out our guide to London pancakes from around the world.

Pancake Races

A more recent London Tradition is the pancake race—a race run while flipping a pancake in a frying pan. Want to see the pros in action? Check out the Liveries (merchant guilds) of London as they go head-to-head in all their old-timey finery.

Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
