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.
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. For vegan pancakes check out the Gallery Cafe in Bethnall Green. Looking for something a little different? Check out our guide to London pancakes from around the world.
A more recent London Tradition is the pancake race—a race run while flipping a pancake in a frying pan. If you’d like to try yourself, head to Greenwich. 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.
