London Marathon

Critics' choice

You're already too late to enter the ballot for the 2015 London Marathon, but if you were hoping to join the 35,000-odd runners on the 26.2 mile course this year, choose a charity to support and they might be able to allocate you a place. If you feel your legs aren't up to actually running anywhere but you'd still like to show your support, join the crowds of spectators who line the route to shout encouragement instead. The biggest crowds of spectators gather at Tower Bridge and Embankment and the emotional finish of the Marathon takes place on the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace. Details of road closures and spectator information for this year's route will be available nearer the time on the London Marathon website.

Munch Street Food Festival

This one-day street food festival coincides with the London Marathon, which is handy as its riverbank location at Potters Fields is the perfect spot if you’re planning to cheer the participants on across Tower Bridge. Expect lots of great food as well as live music and entertainment throughout the day. There will be all sorts of road closures because of the race so get off at London Bridge Station to avoid getting caught on the wrong side of the runners.

Spring Plants and Gardens Fair

Once again the Garden Museum is throwing open its doors to exhibitors and plant perusers. The fair takes place outside the museum as well as within, so you can draw inspiration from the seventeenth-century-style knot garden. Specialist nurseries and horticulturists including Beans and Herbs, Dyson’s Nurseries and heritage seed specialists Pennard Plants will be offering expert advice on your purchases. The museum’s vegetarian garden café will be open for business and a ticket to the fair includes entry to the current exhibition 'The Education of a Gardener: The Life & Work of Russell Page'. Visitors can also get their hands on plants cultivated in-house at the museum, artwork from Southbank Printmakers and sustainable garden products from Rivenwood Coppice.

St George's Day at Borough Market

A special market day brings together London and Catalonia to celebrate our shared saint's day. Alongside the usual delicacies and produce, visitors can expect to find sardanes dancers, a Catalan choir, performances by theatre company Bots & Barrals and Catalan actress-singer Laia Martinez telling the story of St George and the Dragon. Londoners can get involved with the romantic Catalan custom of exchanging roses and books with loved ones. The Newham Bookshop and Institut Ramon Llull will be bringing a bookstall to the market and lovers can also buy roses decorated with a spike of wheat.

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.
