Tour description


English cuisine is a tasty testament to the millions of people from around the world who made this island their home. Combined with a rich history of fishing, farming and fresh ingredients, our food tells the tales of invasions, revolutions, industry and religion that span over two millennia. 

Sample a different side of the Big Smoke on this 3 hour exploration through London’s larder- pick up breakfast in one of our oldest taverns, tuck into the original street food, visit a modern British restaurant doing great things for the local community, quench your thirst on a thoroughly British beverage, visit markets both world-famous and more off the beaten track, meet the artisanal producers and small businesses ushering in a new gastronomic era and discover how our past reputation for bad food came to be and how now, it couldn’t be more wrong!
