Full description
Firstly, your local London guide takes you to the exciting Borough Market to soak up the atmosphere and eat some English fudges/chocolate. This eating paradise was not even on the tourist foodie radar a few years ago. Still around the market, you will try award winning Cumberland sausages, followed by the best fresh fish and chips in town. Note the difference between "chips" and "French fries!" There is so much to see in the market that your guide will give you 10-20 minutes to look around yourselves, giving you a chance to buy gifts or eat any samples. Your personal guide will explain the history of the market and the surrounding areas including Sir Francis Drake’s Golden Hind, the Shard and Southwark Cathedral. Your tour will continue to a historic pub where you can try the best of British cheeses, served with grapes, fig cakes and chutneys, washed down with real London beers, ales or delicious ciders (or non-alcoholic options). You will also see the world-famous London Bridge and Tower Bridge on the River Thames as well as the Battleship HMS Belfast. Finally, the tour ends with classic desserts, such as cheesecakes, chocolate brownies or sticky toffee puddings, all washed down with a pot of refreshing tea. Oh, and of course there’s a delicious secret dish too!

    Fantastic tour with really good food and lots of amazing facts. Our guide Billie was absolutely fantastic. Super friendly and knowledgeable. I would suggest definitely not eating prior to the tour as there is a lot of food. Meeting spot was a bit hard for us to find so definitely give yourself enough time to arrive at the location and search for the group. Highly recommend.

    This was a great tour where we learnt a lot of history of Borough Market and London in general with some great samples of food along the way. Great for me as a solo traveller only here for a short time where it would have been hard to find and try all the best foods in the few meals that I had in London.
