East End Food Tour

The East End is one of London’s most bohemian, artsy, and culturally diverse areas, and a delicious way to experience its offerings is through Eating London's East End Food Tour. The idea behind the tour is simple: Savor various culinary delights while learning more about the history behind each particular dish. From the legendary bacon sandwich at St. John Bread and Wine to the award-winning salted caramel tart at Pizza East, this 3.5-hour tour will give you the chance to enjoy eight delicacies that help put Britain on the food map. Don’t worry, it’s not just about stuffing yourself silly. Your leisurely walk around this vibrant area also takes in the East End's meandering alleys, interesting graffiti, and quirky buildings, and the guide peppers the tour with informative anecdotes. Nicole, our guide when we went, was amazing. Her infectious smile, her knowledge of the East End, and her passion to make us try the best of British food made this experience even more enjoyable. Combining scrumptious local fare with a side of historical and cultural information, the East End Food Tour is our idea of a perfect tour. You'll get to know London like a local if you’re a visitor, and fall in love with London all over again if you live here. It takes place from Monday to Saturday at 10 a.m. All you need to bring with you is your rumbling tummy!

Hail Tradition

The mere mention of English food conjures images of 'pub grub' accompanied by a glass of local cider. Kickstart your holiday by paying a visit to a cosy neighbourhood pub like The Rose and Crown. The neighbourhood pubs of London have an old world charm that is tough to resist.

Order pub classics such as pickled eggs and traditional English Roast followed by Bread and Butter Pudding. The stodgy pudding is accompanied with rich vanilla custard. Sample English apple cider and local beers while observing the dark wooden interiors, shabby-chic upholstery, and miscellaneous memorabilia adorning the walls of the pub.
