The guide was fantastic and the food was amazing. While the restaurants were great, the history our guide gave us during our walk through Soho was even better.

An evening of great food and drink with Zahra and Josh, both of whom are personable, fun, and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend if you want to eat at some eclectic places that are out of the way and delicious. But the guides made the evening.
We learned so much about not only the food we tasted but also the restaurants we visited and history of all the buildings we saw. We could never visit these wonderful places on our own and quickly served to taste their signature dish.

My favourite pub in London is called the Mayflower, it's a lovely walk along the south bank of the Thames from Tower Bridge. Enjoy a nice pint overlooking the river and pretend you're a pirate

Grew up on a farm in Somerset but now loving the big city life.
I love to go to Mildred's in Soho for fresh and super tasty vegetarian cuisine and then finishing off with a glass of bubbly.

I was born in Hull, Yorkshire but moved to London in 2011
Favourite place to eat is The Oystermen in Covent Garden, you can't go wrong there. Always a good spread. Although St. John's bakery in London Bridge is a close second
Near Tower Hill Station, there's a hidden gem of a pub called The Dickens Inn. Great drinks, pub food and looks beautiful. Sunday Roast, always a good shout. You're right by the harbour too. Not too far from the Tower of London
I was born and raised in St Albans, Hertfordshire, but now living in the east end of London

Sunday Brunch at Megan's is the tastiest & the staff are always so lovely.
Go to see as many theatre shows as you possibly can - The Moulin Rouge at the Vaults in London Bridge is not to be missed. Also, the Stairway to Heaven is the best bar in London.

I am from Essex - just East of East london
my favourite restaurant in London is six by Nico because I’m so indecisive I couldn’t possibly decide on one meal, I’d rather settle with the 6 individual courses that they serve to you at the 6 by Nico experience
you cannot beat the atmosphere at Camden market, grab some food and take a browse at the interesting stalls, then escape the wildness and go for a stroll the the beautiful neighbouring village of primrose hill
Born and raised in Leeds up North, but have lived in London for well over a decade - pretty much all over the city!
Oooh, I’m a sucker for Street Food - get yourself to a Street Feast or Mercato Metropolitano for an abundance of vendors, refined menus, and tasty dishes.
Central London is beautiful, but if you need to temper your city break with some nature; head to Richmond Park in South West London and hang out with some wild deer - you’ll forget you’re even in the city.
Born and raised in South-East London, I've been tummy-rumbling my way around the city my whole life, and I fall in love with it more every year

Head to any of the Eat Tokyo branches around London for a delicious bento box and tofu!
