Perfect Father's Day events in London
Spices at Kew
This summer's events at Kew are themed around the spice trade. Visitors will be ferried around the gardens in rickshaw-inspired contraptions, able to create their own spice and to learn about the medicinal power of cloves. Spiced delicacies will also be available from street food vans, a pop-up bread kitchen and in the garden's Orangery and Pavilion restaurants.
The Horne Section's Questions Sessions
Alex Horne's jazz-accompanied comedy-party returns to the Udderbelly, but this time as a quiz show. It's heaps of fun, with games, challenges and nonsense from Horne and his hugely talented band, plus special guest comics accompanied by live music.
Adams Antiques Fair
This huge antiques fair has been selling precious objects at 'The Horti' since the 1970s, making it one of the stalwarts of the London antiques scene. Join the queue that usually forms ahead of the opening hours to be among the first to browse the 140-odd stalls and find yourself a bargain. There's free parking for those looking to pick up a sizeable haul.
