Sample Itinerary

Start Your Tour with Tea
Of course our British food tour starts with a cup of tea, and a traditional snack, to introduce you to British food culture and the history of the market.

Taste Fabulous Flavours
Eat your way around the market, enjoying private tastings of European cheeses and British charcuterie, and savouring the sights and smells it has to offer. And we’ll include a secret stop tailored to you, to enjoy something more filling.

Indulge in Hot Chocolate
Of course you could have a coffee, but we bet you don’t want to miss the award-winning hot chocolate that we decided was one of the best in London…

Sample a Selection of Wines
Join us for a drink in a hidden, award-winning warehouse, exclusive to our Borough food tour, and enjoy planning the rest of your time in London.

Secret Treats and Tasty Recommendations
We have to keep some things secret, so you’ve got a few edible surprises in store. We’ll also give you recommendations galore for where to go (and where to eat) in London.

Advice and Support for the Rest of Your Trip
We like to stay in touch, so if there are any questions, big or small, for the rest of your trip, we welcome you to message us. We’re always happy to help.
