Big groups and small. From abroad, from the UK and from just around the corner. We run food tours for them all.
We've done tours themed around:
- celebratory food
- food from around the world
- traditional British food
- sweets and treats
and we're always happy to design something new.
Or if you just want to give your group a treat, we'll design a tour to give them a great day out.
Our big thing is making these tours as affordable and accessible as possible.
For groups of 30ish or fewer, we can tour as one group. With more than 30, we split into smaller groups and add more guides.
We tend to tour in the City and Shoreditch with these groups.
We can cater for halal and vegetarian students and anyone with a nut allergy.
Whether you're coming by coach, tube or on foot, we can offer advice on the best way to reach us.
We have public liability insurance for £5m and DBS-checked guides who are used to (and like) working with young people.
A taste of a tour
Here's an example of a tour we did with 30 school children and three staff members with a duration of around 3 hours.
Start in Shoreditch and get a taste of the street food scene with some fancy fries and tasty toppings. Here the students get a chance to look around a market and see food from all over the world.
Pick up some award-winning sausage rolls from a little shop that champions British products and produce. We'll eat our pastries in what was London's worst slum (it's nice now).
Make our way down Brick Lane to pick up some unusual rainbow bagels - always a hit with our younger customers - plus we get to share stories about the old Jewish East End.
After seeing some super-sized street art we make our way into Banglatown and pick up a savoury snack from one of the delis. Fresh pakora is the best.
Finish off on a sugar high with a galactic glazed mini doughnut. (As the shop says 'they're out of this world'.)
We end up at Spitalfields Market.
The idea is to give our groups a taste of the area: the street food trends, the staple dishes that locals have been eating for years and the food that reflects the communities that have passed through this part of town.
As with all our tours we share loads of history about the area - the stuff you don't find in the guidebooks.
