Tour Duration: 180 min

Food & drink walking tour in South East London. Bermondsey - Borough Market.

This tour is about getting you way off the beaten track and going where the locals go. Over three hours we visit six very different stops and two markets, one hidden away and one you can't miss. From Venezuelan Arepa's to visiting a hidden away distillery to try a gin & tonic, both found underneath the arches of the London Bridge train station, delicious pasta made right in front of your eyes by the incredible chefs at Flour & Grape, artisanal cheese from Neal's Yard Dairy, oysters from Richard Howard's Oyster bar (8 generations and still carrying the torch of the Howard name) and depending on the day, Iraqi dumplings from Juma or succulent sausage rolls from Ginger Pig, both found right in the centre of Borough Market. We will view into what London's old warehouses and docklands used to look like along the River Thames, when London was at the centre of global commerce and walk down the very trendy Bermondsey area and learn about its fascinating past in the Leather, Wool & Hide trade.

Points Of Interest

  • 10 minutes: We will start right in front of London's majestic Tower Bridge and we will walk right under it as well and gaze at this incredible engineering feat.
  • 15 minutes: Charles Dicken's got a lot of inspiration from around this area especially south of the river just by Shad Thames and Butlers Wharf. His most notable book being 'Oliver Twist'. When you join us on the tour you'll understand why straight away.
  • 45 minutes: A very hidden away market only open on the weekends and tucked away underneath the railway arches of the London Bridge mainline train station. All the locals come here so a real treat to show you somewhere a little bit secret.
  • 30 minutes: London's oldest 'still running' fruit & vegetable market + a very modern street food scene which is conjoined to the market. Old & new work hand in hand here. The atmosphere here is always electric and you can't not visit London and not experience Borough Market.
  • 10 minutes: Here we will finish right in front of the famous Golden Hinde galleon. Francis Drake sailed this boat against the Spanish Armada and he was also the second captain to circumnavigate this boat around the Globe. This is where we will finish the tour.
