Exploring London on a Sunday

Exploring london

Typically, if you are booking a weekend trip somewhere then Sunday is the day when you pack up your cases and head on home but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t get to spend some time exploring before it’s time to catch that train or board that plane.  Sunday is a wonderful day to be in London; there are usually less tourists milling around and there is a real relaxed vibe which arrives in certain boroughs.

So, if you are taking advantage of The Montcalm Club Sunday offer or simply have a few hours to meander around the city on a Sunday, here are our top things to do in London on the last day of the weekend:-

Enjoy a Full English Breakfast

Go to a Market

Go For A Walk

London is full of gorgeous open spaces and a Sunday afternoon is the ideal time to just opt for a wander around.  Head to one of the eight Royal Parks which are located in the city or, for stunning views, try Primrose Hill.  Alternatively you could wander around an attraction such as Kew Gardens, perhaps challenging yourself to complete the Treetop Walk.

Head to a Sunday Service

There are lots of stunning churches and cathedrals all over the city and almost every single one will run a regular programme of services, especially on a Sunday.  You could try one of the larger churches such as Westminster or St Martin in the Fields or just opt for a smaller, local church if you just want to soak up some of the atmosphere.  That said, attending a Sunday service is a great way to see inside some of the more famous churches such as St Paul’s Cathedral.  Not only does this offer you the chance to see inside these stunning monuments but many feature music performed by world class musicians as well.
