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!

What a fabulous food tour! We’ve done several in the US and Europe and thus one is one of the best! Borough Market is so vibrant and was wonderful to visit. Billie was our guide and she was a delight! Very knowledgeable and was so friendly and interacted well with the group. You will leave full for sure!

Billie, our guide, took us on a tour of a food market that I had not heard of before, and which is certainly worth spending time on. A very relaxed and tasty three hours with much background, mainly on food and its context (did you know about the connection between apple crumble or fish and chips and the second world war?) The history and archaeology of the area were also covered, and a good few movies were mentioned as well. The samples were very well chosen, and we felt full but not overly so by the end. There is a drinks update, but it's not really necessary. You get a small glass of cidre and some tea anyway.

Our tour guide, Tom, was so personable! We loved his knowledge and suggestions. He made the entire experience quite enjoyable. If you are on fence about booking this fun tour - my recommendation is - BOOK IT NOW!!! We typically book foodie walking tour wherever we travel and this was one of the best ones. You won’t be disappointed!
