The best Mother’s Day events in London
2018 marks 100 years since The Representation of the People Act was passed, giving (some) women the right to vote in the UK for the first time. Take a closer look at some of the less well known suffragettes whose perseverance made it all happen at Votes for Women, an exhibition from the Museum of London.

Fish X Chips
Traditional fish and chips has had a fancy makeover. This attractive corner restaurant has a bar beside the friers and plenty of seating. Despite the modern flourishes, Fish X Chips maintains the essence of a proper chippie. Pukka pies, for instance – they've got three different flavours here at £2.20 a pop. A chip buttie comes in at £2 and a jumbo saveloy £1.80. You can easily eat here and have cod, haddock, rock, plaice or skate with chips for under a tenner.
Venue says: “With absolutely nothing artificial on the menu, we pride ourselves on good honest food using only fresh ingredients.”
