8 bueno ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in London

Devote this year’s early May Bank Holiday to a salsa-fuelled, tequila-soaked fiesta Mexicana

Do we really need an excuse to celebrate Mexican culture? Well, apparently, yes – that's why Cinco de Mayo exists.

While you might think May 5 would be Mexican Independence Day or something along those lines, the date actually commemorates Mexico’s relatively obscure victory over the French at the 1862 Battle of Puebla. That hasn’t stopped the day becoming synonymous with the celebration of all things Mexican, and this year looks set to be no different. Of course, it helps that Cinco de Mayo falls over the early May Bank Holiday – but even if it didn’t, we’d still be just as excited. With mariachi music, bottomless margaritas, delicious Aztec cuisine and Donald Trump-themed pinatas all on the menu, can you blame us?

Here are some of the best things to do in London this Cinco de Mayo.
