Experience the East End… where hipness and history meet!

There’s no other area in London quite like The East End! Most famously associated with cockney dialect, the birthplace of London’s street art scene, the home of legendary Brick Lane, Spitalfields market, and the neighborhood where old and new strike a fascinating balance.

On this 3.5 hour walking food tour in the East End we will literally eat our way through the neighborhood and its rich  history. We will trace the footsteps of all the groups that once called the East End home. You will discover local eats like the UK’s best Fish & Chips 2 -time winner, the home of the city’s best bacon sandwich, a visit to Curry lane and so much more. Along the way you will come to understand why this neighbourhood is so unique and discover how it has changed from an infamously poor area to one of the trendiest places on the London map.

Fun, informative and of course, delicious, this is so much more than a food tour – it’s a taste of the neighbourhood all in less than one day!

You’ll try a selection of proper British foods and enjoy six food tastings at a range of local haunts, including everyone’s favourite late-night bagel shop and the best Curry House on Brick Lane.

Skip the queues with our exclusive VIP access, meet the owners and discover the REAL London with us!

Note: itinerary & tastings subject to change due to seasonal availability, individual closings or local holidays.

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.
