A curated tour of London’s most famous food market.

Immerse yourself in the 1000-year history of this truly massive food market in the London Bridge neighborhood. Taste your way through the market with creamy British cheeses, fresh fruit crumbles, and the best sausage roll in the city.

Highlights Include:

  • Meet the local artisans behind London’s diverse cuisine.
  • Explore the best tastes among over 100 market stalls.
  • Drink a pint at one of the coolest local-favourite English pubs.

The Borough Market is one of the most impressive and vibrant food markets in the world and a must-see on anyone’s visit to London. Discover the best traders in the market and hear fascinating stories about its history and cultural importance within London’s food scene. Though this is much more than a market tour, because London Bridge is such an iconic and historic part of the city. We will wander the backstreets around the market before settling in at one of our favourite pubs, a local landmark that provides the perfect way to end our food & drink experience at this historic venue.

Josie was a fun, approachable and knowledgeable guide. The team put together a great variety of foods that showcases all of the ethnic influences in the East End. Wonderfully done.

- Paula (TripAdvisor review)

We loved our East End food tour with Dinah! She made the history come alive by sharing the stories of her family’s own history in the neighborhood. And the food stops were outstanding. Such a wonderful variety of food and every proprietor knew and clearly liked Dinah.

- Marti (TripAdvisor review)

We had many wonderful experiences during our trip to England, but this was our favorite! It was so memorable. The food and the food selections could not have been better! We loved the bacon sandwich and of course the caramel chocolate ganache tart. How lovely it was with the Prosecco. Curry and beer at noon? excellent. Our guide Sarah was fun, knowledgeable and interesting.

- Nancy Fohner

Wonderful way to spend a long layover in London. Food was great and Dinah was so fun and knowledgeable, especially with her family connection to the area we grouped. Wish it could have been longer.
