Some of us like to get up and out, to a great market, brisk walk or church service, while others enjoy a lie-in, followed by a short stroll to your local pub for a slap-up meal and a couple of drinks. But however you like to spend your Sunday, London is the perfect place to find an activity to suit all tastes, whether you like to pack your day with tons of outings, or do as little as humanly possible!
