Father's Day, Sunday 19 June 2016, is nearly upon us and well-trained sons and daughters across the land are frantically scrambling to find suitable activities to take the edge off a day of awkward parent-sibling bonding. However, Londoners need look no further than our handy guide below to what to do with your Dad on Father's Day in London.

Take Dad out for a special Gentlemen's Afternoon Tea at The Milestone Hotel in Kensington. This manly offering includes traditional items such as mini beef Wellingtons, wild boar Scotch eggs and savoury scones. On Father's Day, Dads also receive a free gift. The normal gent's afternoon tea is £42 per person, or you can upgrade to include a cocktail for £52pp, or include a flight of whiskies (1x25ml Dalmore 15, 1x25ml Dalmore King Alexander, 1x25ml Laproaigh 10) for £75pp. For big kingpin Dads, add a 50ml measure of 1989 Dalmore Constellation for £400pp. Book ahead (minimum of two people, 48 hours advanced notice required).

Show your prime, well-aged Dad that you care with a perfectly cooked steak at one of London's top 10 steak restaurants.

With Euro football fixtures, the Formula 1 racing and the US Open all happening on Sunday, up your Father's Day game at one of London's best sports bars.

All dads dining on the Infinity Brunch at Aqua Kyoto will be treated to a free Glenfiddich whisky and cigar tasting specifically blended to go with each dram. The three sessions (11.30am, 2.30pm and 3.30pm) will be hosted by Bar Manager Nico Peratinos on the Aqua Kyoto terrace.

Heliot Steak House is spoiling dads by offering them a £50 WIN CHIP, a free pint or glass of wine and a free upgrade to a large steak when ordering a medium sized one. Based in the Hippodrome Casino, Leicester Square, the restaurant serves mouth-wateringly delicious, award-winning USDA Prime steaks at unbelievable value.

Planning Father's Day in London is plain sailing with Thames Clippers. Book online and Dad can travel on London's river Thames for free on Father's Day with a River Roamer ticket.

Treat your old man to a jazz night in London with Sunday's Summer Session at Chiswick House. Legendary rhythm and blues venue, Ronnie Scott's will fill the grounds of this historic house with smooth sounds from Georgie Fame, Claire Martin OBE, Vanessa Haynes and more. Get tickets from £22.

It's Dad v. Food this Father's Day at All Star Lanes. Challenge competitive dads in the lanes (free ten-pin bowling) and celebrate with a free limited edition Big Daddy Burger loaded with two patties, two rashers of bacon, cheese and beer fried onions.

Feudal overlord or knight in shining armour? Give your Dad the chance to prove his metal at the Grand Medieval Joust at Eltham Palace. Tickets from just £3.

Skip the carving debate and tuck in to a traditional Sunday Roast at Bistrot de Luxe for Father's Day 2016. For £18.50, choose between roast leg of lamb, 40-day aged beef or chicken with duck fat potatoes and all the trimmings. Fish and veggie options are also available.

Work your way through a choice of more than 100 whiskies at Knightsbridge's The Hyde Bar. Complete the experience and sample Castro's favourite cigar at this sophisticated venue's outdoor cigar terrace.

Bond over your shared love of beer on a brewery tour with London Fields Brewery (£13) or head to Greenwich for a tour and tasting session with Meantime (£17.50).
