We'll meet in Shoreditch and start with a cup of tea in a 17th-century townhouse, where I'll introduce you to the area's unique culture and rich history. We'll then taste samples from a famous fish-and-chip shop, get curry from a proud Brick Lane curry-house owner, and also drink some insanely chocolately hot chocolate. After an introduction to the hidden street art, we'll end in a proper East End "boozer" for an ale, where you're welcome to continue the party. Throughout this experience, I'll explain the dynamic history and culture of the area and the origins of its foods. At the end, you'll have tasted different local foods and drinks and will come away with a deeper, richer understanding of one of London's most diverse and buzzing neighborhoods.
We met in a Brick Lane bookshop years ago, and bonded over our love of London, its amazing history, and food. Charley trained as a chef and Beatrice trained as a historian, so together we combined our passions, and worked hard to develop the best London food tours. Whether it's the best scotch egg, or the latest street art, we love sharing our unique discoveries with people. On our tours you taste your way through London's eclectic food scene and the stories and secrets that have made it world-famous.
