LONDON, March 04, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The capital's largest Pancake Day race is set to return this Shrove Tuesday as Bankside once again hosts its annual Pancake Flipping Charity Relay Race on behalf of Paintings in Hospitals. Last year almost 20 businesses turn out to complete against each other and Bankside's finest will once again show their pancake-tossing skills in Borough Market's Jubilee Market on 4th Match between midday and 2pm in a bid to be crowned the best pancake tosser in London. Visitors to London hoping to watch the race should look for details on LondonTown.com, London's most reliable website for tourists, where they will also find information about cheap London hotels, restaurants, bars and cafes.
The Bankside event will celebrate all things pancakes, with many of Borough Market's world-famous food traders offering a variety of the traditional treats - from classic lemon and sugar to modern-day savoury twists. In addition, local buskers Ste and Lew will be joining the festivities, providing entertainment to onlookers, shoppers and participants. Money raised during the event will be donated to local charity ‘Paintings in Hospitals', which lends original works of art to hospitals, hospices and other healthcare facilities throughout the UK.
Those attending the race should also take the opportunity to explore the fascinating area around Bankside, where they will find everything from Tudor ships to modern art. Attractions in the area include the Golden Hinde, a replica of Sir Francis Drake's famous world-traversing ship, and the Tate Modern, one of the most popular art galleries in the world, as well as lesser-known treats such as the stunning Southwark Cathedral near London Bridge and Viniopolis, where visitors can explore the history of wine – and have the occasional sample to accompany their Borough Market pancake.
