  • London Winter Run

    A chilling new 10k will take over the streets of central London this winter as participants raise money for Cancer Research UK by dashing through wintry zones and past some of London's most iconic attractions. Runners will pass through an ice tunnel and be blasted in snow zones as well as being greeted with polar bear hugs in the end of the route.

  • Gilles Peterson

    Global beats maestro and generally ace selector Gilles Peterson brings his thoroughly eclectic record bag to the popular Islington party pub to play a special 'bag full of 7s set' – in other words he'll be playing only 7-inch vinyl. Expect anything from disco to house to jazz to Afrobeat to dub at this show, hosted by Red Bull Music Academy. Also busting out eclectic grooves will be Throwing Snow, who specialises in atmospheric electronica layered with chunky hip hop-ish beats.

    Old Queen's Head, Feb 1

  • Grimaldi Service

    The annual service in which around 60 clowns, dressed in full costume, gather to honour the king of the clowns, Joseph Grimaldi (1778-1837), will this year take place in the All Saints Church in Haggerston. This temporary venue is larger than their usual haunt but it's still best to arrive early – many Grimaldi fans and clown admirers usually show, too, up so the pews will no doubt be packed.

  • Super Bowl XLIX at Draft House Seething Lane

    The Seething Lane branch of The Draft House has an absolutely massive HD screen, which makes it a most worthy candidate for spending the wee small hours of the morning watching an absolutely massive sporting event live from across the pond. This screening of the Super Bowl will be preceded by live music and accompanied by a free pint of something delicious from the Lagunitas Brewing Company (for those who book their ticket in advance). Suitably greasy but tempting snacks will be available all night, and the bar will stay open until 4.30am. Booking recommended. Check out even more Super Bowl events and screenings.

I tried 

http://goo.gl/oD3TKa

for Sensual massage as a friend recommended their service to me. I was a little uncertain to have someone come for a massage at home, but I was really desperate after a red-eye flight from the Portland, OR, so I gave them a chance and they couldn't have been better. The massage therapist came 15 minutes earlier than expected, they were professional, and everything was very nicely packaged and arranged. I paid £60 for an hour and it was convenient because I didn't have to leave my room. I'm certainly going to use them again when I am back.

Looking for London Business Travel List for Dining , Museum Visits and Things to Do this Season With the right entertainment and dining guide, on-the-go business travelers to London can explore the city between meetings and after the business day ends. If you have a morning free before you head off to your meetings, you should enjoy an authentic English breakfast at The Wolseley. It offers an award-winning full English breakfast starting as early as 7 am for early risers (or those not yet adjusted to London time). The breakfast menu features a viennoiserie basket, the famous The English (eggs, bacon, sausage, baked beans, tomato, black pudding and mushrooms), and lighter fare like grapefruit or granola. Reservations are recommended as this event is very popular amongst the business set during the week. Then you can soak up the city by going to some of the most controversial and intriguing contemporary British art at the Saatchi Gallery. Located in a 70,000 square-foot space in Chelsea, exhibitions of sculpture, painting, photography, video and installations keep the eye and mind engaged. After that, you can stop by Buckingham Palace and try and see the queen! To make sure you’re ready for your eventful morning in London, why not indulge yourself to a relaxing spa day at your hotel after your flight? It can erase those bleary eyes and disoriented state of being from jumping through time zones. Jet Lag is one of the most common problems business men and women experience. The Mandarin Oriental Hotel near Hyde Park features a luxurious spa offering hydrotherapy, color therapy and an opportunity to create a custom spa experience. There’s also Urban Retreat (for the ladies) and The Refinery (for gentlemen) at Harrod’s .Harrod’s also provides a menu of services as a quick jump-start for the hard-working businessperson. Once you’ve relaxed your mind, body, and soul, there’s nothing better than a rich meal to top it off. London is home to some of the finest and luxurious restaurants you can find. West End restaurants in London to enjoy dinner at include The Ivy London, Thames Barrier and dinner by Heston Blumenthal. The Fat Duck, the Mandarin Oriental, Hyde Park location of Din-ner are all restaurants from acclaimed 3 Star Michelin Chef which are packed with foodies who come for degustation of ofal and classic British country fare prepared with modern gastronomic technique.

Loved the disco roast recommendation, but after taking the trip across town with a group of mates yesterday we got to The East Village and were told that they no longer does Sunday Roasts!!!!

PS my favorite Sunday haunt is Church Street in Stoke Newington - Turkish coffee, fresh juices, mediterranean breakfasts and vintage clothes. Also an old school DVD rental shop with the discs arranged by director, not 'category', for that afternoon veg out.

Nice to see that TFL are finally doing the free bike hire scheme, but you have to wonder how long those bikes will last on the streets in a city where one is stolen approx every 4 seconds.... This might have to be crossed off the Sunday to do list fairly rapidly. Must say I agree with Laura too. I found the Hangover Cure one particularly poor. Have the writers ever had a raging hangover or are they chained to their desks? Because every Londoner knows that Camden's hordes of tourists and pounding music are the worst place you could be on a Sunday morning....

I have to say I totally agree with Laura. Having said that.. it does pose another problem. I have many "hidden" gems I like to visit in London, from parties to shows, breakfast to midnight snacks...Timeout has picked up on these on occasion and within weeks if not days they kill any atmosphere there was in said destination and make it impossible to get a seat without booking weeks in advance.. The reviews for the past 8 - 12 months have constantly failed to deliver or find anything that you couldnt find by having a quick google! Part of me is happy, but I still feel TO could be highlighting some great things to do and help London business thats being hit hard of late, just keep your prying eyes out of my hidden spots!

I DID like everything Time Out wrote here. Especially the Go Alternative part. Keep up Time Out! You make me get out of bed every day and go explore London!

I really appreciate Time Out as a publication but invariably as a consumer of Time Out I care about, and am interested in, what is going on in London. It's for this reason that everytime I read a Time Out feature i get excited that it is going to throw up a hidden gem or suggest something to do that i haven't heard about or thought of doing before in the capital. But alas, the above feature 'Great Things to do on a Sunday in London' fails to deliver as so many have lately. Regular readers of Time Out already know a lot of what is going on in the Capital, what we are looking for are new inspiring ideas not 'go to camden market to cure a hangover' we've been doing that for years - since we were kids (and quite frankly there is no where worse on a hangover). Don't forget to cater for Londoners - not just tourists. PLEASE show me something new.
