What you'll do

Get under the skin of Shoreditch on the longest-running food tour of East London, and discover the local hotspots, the traditional eateries and learn the fascinating stories that wind their way through the atmospheric streets.

You’ll meet in the trendy district of Hackney, before heading on a food tour of the iconic areas around Brick Lane, Spitalfields Market and more. Try classic salt beef bagels on the world-famous Brick Lane and wander into tempting chocolate shops, then enjoy the assault on the senses as you wander the stalls of Spitalfields.

Cuisines from all over the world mingle in this beautiful old market space, and the journey around Shoreditch will include five food stops and, of course, a trip to a local pub.

You’ll learn all about the colourful history that has shaped this corner of London, hear weird and wonderful stories that add another layer of intrigue to an already fascinating district.

Discover wonderful street art, and get a true flavour for a neighbourhood that truly rewards you for getting under its skin and getting to know it like a local.

Your local host


As a bit of a history geek, a proud Londoner of twelve years, a lover of all things food-related and a confident storyteller. I have found a way to combine all my interests together and attach them to this business that I don’t even feel like I can call it work anymore. May the stories and food live on.

​I have made it my life mission to visit every country on earth and learn about their culture but more importantly taste their food. If you concentrate on just their food, it can say so much about a person, city, country and culture which I find so fascinating. Everyone has a story to tell, a food they either love to eat or make themselves. If I have to be the person that has to listen to all their stories with my belly, then I will happily accept that challenge; who said life was hard eh?
