Come to the East End for some proper British food…

There’s no other area in London quite like The East End! Most famously associated with cockney dialect, the Bow Bells, colorful street art and the world-renowned serial killer, Jack the Ripper – the East End has a fascinating past and is now an achingly cool creative hub and one of the most distinctive neighbourhoods in London today.

On this 3.5 hour walking food tour we trace the footsteps of all the groups that once called the East End home. You’ll come away with a real sense of 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 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!

Please note: the bagel shop is not available on Sundays so we visit a historic pub for an ale and cider tasting instead!

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.

- Suzanne S (TripAdvisor review)

- 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.
