Join us on a tour through some of London’s best food markets and some of the tastiest foods. London has an exceptional amount of food markets, some of which are so hidden, most locals don’t even know they exist! This tour will take you to London’s best hidden gems and secret spots.
This is an unmissable opportunity to explore some small-scale food manufacturers who operate under the arches. The area enjoys a unique edible history with such names as Sarson’s vinegar, Gordon’s gin, Peek Frean’s biscuits and Hartley’s jam to name but a few.
As we walk over to the markets, we learn why this area became associated with food and drink and also find out more about the initiative to encourage small businesses to create handmade foods in under-utilised railway arches. As we walk around the markets, we experience bold new flavours and some old favourites re-incarnated.
Taking in little-known culinary gems such as Spa Terminus and Maltby Street markets, the tour is perfect for those looking for something adventurous and fun. We taste delicious cheeses made in the area as well as sample jams, bread, and honey.

What our guests are saying:
"This was a fab way to spend a couple of hours understanding such a historic part of London. Emma was a perfect tour guide with lots of interesting facts to offer. There were snacks aplenty and sampling the food was an excellent way to ground the tour and it would give any strangers to the area more confidence to explore further after the tour. We are Londoners yet we learned more about the area than we knew before. It was a very friendly atmosphere too, so the group was chatty and friendly despite not having met before."
"This tour was so brilliant. Emma was so knowledgeable and shared this with us in a fun way. We were fed really well too! Emma is a brilliant natural guide and I'm looking to book up another tour very soon. I really felt I had learnt so much at the end of this tour. Would recommend this to anyone!!"
