Rehab UK Parliamentary Pancake Race Review

Location:
The race takes place in Victoria Gardens (opposite College Green) at the other end of Houses of Parliament to Big Ben – adjacent to the river. You'll find it!

Nearest tube station: Westminster

Description:
Members of both Houses of Parliament (House of Lords and House of Commons) and representing all the major political parties compete in this highly competitive race.

Final team selection is often a secret until the morning of the event, but veteran pancake racers Lord Morris of Manchester, Lord and Lady Dholakia, Betty Williams MP and Steven Pound MP usually take part.

A VIP official starter will be on hand to ensure that the Rules of Engagement are strictly observed, including a newly-imposed ban on tripping up other competitors!

Race Time:
10.am - 10.30am
(Note: the race is only 5-10 minutes so enjoy the fun before and after.)
