What You'll Do

Get under the skin of Shoreditch on the longest-running food tour of East London, and discover the local hotspots, the traditional eateries and learn the fascinating stories that wind their way through the atmospheric streets.

You’ll meet in the trendy district of Hackney, before heading on a food tour of the iconic areas around Brick Lane, Spitalfields Market and more. Try classic salt beef bagels on the world-famous Brick Lane and wander into tempting chocolate shops, then enjoy the assault on the senses as you wander the stalls of Spitalfields.

Cuisines from all over the world mingle in this beautiful old market space, and the journey around Shoreditch will include five food stops and, of course, a trip to a local pub.

You’ll learn all about the colourful history that has shaped this corner of London, hear weird and wonderful stories that add another layer of intrigue to an already fascinating district.

Eddie

As a bit of a history geek, a proud Londoner of twelve years, a lover of all things food-related and a confident storyteller. I have found a way to combine all my interests together and attach them to this business that I don’t even feel like I can call it work anymore. May the stories and food live on.

This made for an amazing evening out and Eddie was a fantastic host - you could tell he really put care and thought into his selections of history and food. My favourite was by far the Basque restaurant, with a fantastic range for both serious meat lovers and vegetarians alike. An eclectic mix of pintxos, Indian, chocolates, Nutella/ricotta pizza, salt beef bagels and fantastic wine and beers.... and a great dash of history and discoveries I never would've found. I highly recommend this for an alternative night out for anyone - even a local!

Have recommended to friends and family I booked the tour wanting to do something slightly different for my partner’s birthday and I can definitely say that it exceeded both of our expectations. With Eddie as our guide we had a brilliant day out. We learnt loads of interesting things about the history of the east end, facts were short and snappy and Eddie’s knowledge and passion for London meant that we didn’t even have time to wonder what was on the menu next. We discovered lots of sights that we would have never thought to look out for and got to try some amazing food that has definitely broadened our culinary horizons! The tour was amazing value, the portions were generous and Eddie was very accommodating, finding me veg options and replacing my beer with wine, we loved it and are recommending it to everyone :)

East End Tour- an experience not to be missed! This tour incorporated everything you could want from a vacation outing- food, drink, history, fun facts, art, laughs, a bit of exercise; you name it! Our tour guide, Eddie, was a delight! He knew all the local business owners, which made us feel like locals ourselves. Not having to wait in queues or for reservations was a nice perk, as well. He knew the answers to all our questions and encouraged us to explore every curiosity we had along the way. Even on a rainy January day in London, he made our tour an experience to remember.
