Before putting on our coats, opening the door and hoping for the best, why not make a plan and top off the perfect weekend with our guide to things to do in London on Sunday? We’ve handpicked some of the most interesting and enjoyable ways to pass the day. Check them out and see where the next incredible Sunday adventure in Mayfair takes us.

Sunday Jazz at Mercato Mayfair

Price: Free
Website: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/mayfair-sunday-jazz-afternoon-ft-oggs-a-glass-of-prosecco-tickets-378518197117

Calling all jazz lovers and fans of quality fare. The fabulous St Mark’s Church, which is home to Mercato Mayfair, one of the most diverse markets in the area, is also welcoming OGS to entertain fans and shoppers. Every Sunday, this location on North Audley Street comes alive with the sounds of Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and others as OGS produces a superb repertoire of some of jazz’s finest hits. Entry is free if you buy some of the food and drink sold throughout the venue. However, it also is possible to make a contribution to the band by purchasing a ‘prosecco ticket’ in advance.

There isn’t another setting quite like it in the capital and it is certainly one of our favourite ways to spend Sundays in London. While enjoying the music and atmosphere, take a look around the market vendors and see what they have to offer. There’s an amazing pizza stand, a mouth-watering chicken rotisserie and a ramen stall to name but a few. There’s also a roof terrace where shoppers can head to escape the crowds for a moment if they wish.

Master Classes at Danceworks

Location: 16 Balderton Street
Price: £15+
Website: https://danceworks.com/

Anyone with bundles of energy and a love of dance will find everything they’re looking for, and more, at this iconic dance studio. It takes a certain joie de vivre to wake up on Sundays and decide to go dancing. And Danceworks knows how to harness that unique passion and put it to good work with their masterclasses.

The classes are usually held between 14.30 and 16.00 and are mini-workshops taught by experts in a variety of dance styles. Starting with a little theory behind the movement and then moving on to practical instruction, there’s a lot packed into a short space of time.

The energy at Danceworks is infectious and has been since they opened their doors back in 1982. Here, in this historical building near Balderton Gardens, the studios are a comfortable and friendly place to be among like-minded souls who share our passion for all aspects of dance. But anyone keen to take part that can’t get to the studios can still enjoy the class from home. A fantastic live feed takes the class right to our living rooms and also saves us a few pounds on the class price.

Royal Academy of Arts

Location: 6 Burlington Gardens, London, W1S 3ET
Price: Various

One of the most rewarding things to do in London on a Sunday is to check out the latest collection at the ROA. This institution has been running for over 250 years and holds a special place in the hearts of the Mayfair locals and fans from around the world. The academy is responsible for giving many artists their first opportunity to display their work in an exclusive venue before not only the general public but famous critics too.

The exhibits change regularly. And for art lovers in London, that means exciting new displays to check out on Sundays whenever we’re in the neighbourhood. Access to the beautiful venue at Burlington House is available from 10 am.
