London Food Tour

Join us for a morning stroll through south London’s famous markets.

Our food tour focuses on the famous Brixton Markets where we savour the fusion of Caribbean ingredients, strong musical heritage and experimental restaurant scene of this authentically flavoured London village.

The history covers war heroines, street artists, famous artists such as Van Gogh & bohemian musicians to modern day food heroes. We share how Brixton has changed from a much-maligned area, to one of the most innovative & exciting gastronomic destinations in London. So good that multi-Michelin starred Alain Ducasse & Joel Robuchon head here for inspiration!

Tasting as we travel through the markets, we aim to give you a lovely nibble of the best London has to offer. Tastings will vary from season to season, but you won’t need lunch by the end…guaranteed!

Let us know in advance of any dietary requirements and we can accommodate most requests.

We are so confident that you will enjoy the trip, we offer our famous 100% no quibble money back guarantee.
