Sunday afternoon and evening in London - last one

We will be travelling in from Stansted Sunday morning, early Oct(flight comes in midnight so doubt we'd go back to London) and would appreciate ideas on way to spent last day and evening in London. Will have had a few days in London previously to 'do' things on our list. Just looking for any special 'Sunday' options that we may not have thought of. Probably prefer outdoor suggestions but welcome all!

How about the Sunday afternoon tour of the Kensal Green Cemetery?

Sorry, I don't quite understand this post.

Are you looking for something to do in LONDON on Sunday, before heading to Stansted to get your flight, or are you looking for something to do that is closer to Stansted??

Looking for LONDON Sunday ideas, AFTER flying into Stansted Airport the night before (from Morocco). Sorry if not clear.

Thank you Ronw, just the sort of thing!

Take the train from Stansted to Liverpool Street. On a sunday there are several famous markets in this area that are 'quintissential London' some of them are very ancient:

Brick Lane is like a kind of flea market and runs from 8am-3pm

Spitalfields is antiques, vintage clothes etc and runs from 9am-5pm

UpMarket is indoors, mainly clothes and fashion, 10am-5pm

Petticoat Lane is also mainly clothing and runs from 9am-3pm

Columbia Road is flowers & plants and runs 8am-3pm

Here is information about them:

Hi which airport will you use to depart from London on the sunday? And what time would it be?

Have you booked for accommodation yet as the folks here can come up with really brilliant ideas on this one :)

Hi PrimaRosa

This seems to be causing confusion! Arrive from Morocco to Stansted midnight Saturday. Will probably stay rest of Saturday night in Stansted. Travel to London (train?) Sunday morning. Fly out from Heathrow to Hong Kong Monday 1.20pm. No, accommodation not booked as yet.

Really just looking for anything different we could do on Sunday that we may not have considered. But travel or accommodation ideas welcome if you would like!

i know that you're arriving very late at night on the saturday, but I'm very tempted to suggest you heading straight to central london. stansted is nowhere near london for any sightseeing nor heathrow for the monday's flight.

National Express run OVERNIGHT bus services from stansted airport to victoria coach station. furthermore, they also run services to heathrow. so location-wise, a hotel near victoria station is your best bet.

things to do on a sunday... brick lane is fantastic but may be a bit too crowded/busy for your short schedule. maybe take a gentle boat trip to greenwich instead. don't forget to visit grenwich market ! google-map this postcode for location: SE10 9HZ
