3-Hour Gastronomic London - Escorted Day Tour

At times, it seems that chain restaurants dominate central London. With this walk, we explore the hidden gems tucked in and amongst them and teach you how to separate the chalk from the cheese! This walk is a great way to see some of the most famous neighborhoods of London from a different perspective. In the company of a food historian, or an art historian with a background in food, we generally start near Green Park at the quintessential British food oasis: Fortnum & Mason. We will pay extra attention to the artistry of the cuisine and the aesthetics of the display, while taking in the history of this institution. From there, we will pay visits to Jermyn Street's refined Paxton & Whitfield's cheese shop, the oldest in London, and to the vibrant—and unexpected—Japan Centre in the heart of Piccadilly Circus. We will then weave up to Soho and the lovely Lina Stores deli on Brewer Street before heading to Old Compton Street to pass by the overwhelming Gerry's Alcohol Emporium and the aromatic Algerian Coffee Store. Dipping down into Chinatown, we brave Leicester Square and make our way into Covent Garden, where we will discuss the area's history as a fruit and vegetable market. Whether you are a serious foodie or just a food lover, this walk will help you discover the secret corners of London along with its centuries-old culinary tradition, and will help you debug the myth that London is a culinary wasteland.
