      About This London Tour

      This leisurely 3-hour walk is designed to introduce you to Britain’s regional food specialties as well as London’s unique mélange of cuisines. We will navigate the borough streets of Piccadilly, Soho, Chinatown and Covent Garden, all within a one mile radius of central London. You will taste the wares of London’s premiere cheese mongers, chocolatiers, brewers and tea shops. 


      Green Park in the Piccadilly neighborhood is our usual starting place. From there we enter Fortnum and Mason, the quintessential British food emporium. Next up, at Paxton and Whitfield, founded in the 1700s and believed to be the oldest cheese shop in London, a trained cheese monger will discuss the history of British cheese and the regional varieties to be found. Continuing, we head to the chocolatiers whose shops are much like the one that inspired Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  

      Soho is a foodie destination. Here we will visit the family owned and operated Lina Stores, Soho’s take on an Italian delicatessen. As we end our journey we pass Gerry's Alcohol Emporium on Old Compton Street and Soho’s Algerian Coffee Store where your senses will be deluged with the vibrant bottled colors and pungent scents of the rare and exotic spirits, coffee, teas, beans and leaves sold by these beverage vendors.

      Food for thought

      Traditional British food can be intriguing and intimidating for most London visitors. Scotch eggs, creamed violets, jellied eels and exceptional cheeses and ales are among English delicacies you will want to savor - if only for once in a lifetime. At the end of our adventure you will know how untrue the rumors are that declare London’s cuisine a culinary wasteland. London offers a world of savory surprises.
