The Best Places to Enjoy Pancake Day in London

Published: February 24, 2017

This year, Londoners can forget about scraping that pancake batter down from the ceiling, Moovit can get you to the best pancake joints and events in town!

Shrove Tuesday, better known as Pancake Day takes place on Tuesday 28th February and is traditionally the day when families clear out their cupboards, and prepare for fasting before Lent. This has evolved into the tradition of making pancakes/crepes using the leftover produce in their pantry.

This year, with help from the Londonist and other local experts, Moovit has added all the recommended events and London’s best pancake and crepes locations so that you can get to them easily via public transport. Let us know which place has the best pancakes!
