What you'll do

We'll begin our tour at a renowned 24-hour bagel shop for a freshly baked salt-beef bagel a main east-end attraction since the late 19th century. Your local guide will point out some of the area's highlights before heading to the famous Ghanaian Cocoa Truffle shop, where you'll choose your own truffles from a huge selection of delicious treats. We'll then explore the exciting indoor food market and sample some of the finest 'Unique street food from the market' on Brick Lane. Next, we'll make our way down narrow, cobbled streets to a historic pub where you'll have the chance to sit and try some refreshing real ale. Want to try some of the best fish and chips in the East End? Of course you do! Next we'll grab some fresh fish and triple cooked chips, wrapped in newspaper — the old-fashioned way. What better way to end than with a hot cuppa? We'll relax with a cup of English tea and a delicious dessert. Oh, and of course there's our Secret Dish too, revealed only on the tour.

My name is Eddie and I will be your guide for Secret Food Tours: Shoreditch! Having lived in London for several years, watching the food scene grow and expand, I've witnessed the food that has stood the test of time, whilst also seeing some amazing new cuisines making their mark. Being an experienced guide with a passion for local food, my aim is to help you learn about the fascinating history behind food in this part of town, as well as exploring the amazing variety of cuisine on offer, from restaurants to food stalls and the hidden gems tourists rarely get to see.

Where you'll be

We chose Shoreditch for our East End food tour because of the area's history, culture, street art and wonderful food stalls. A once exotic outdoor market that sold wild animals such as lions has changed dramatically over the years, and is now home to all sorts of stalls selling food, drink, artisanal products, and vintage clothing. The area is a hotspot for locals and tourists who flock here to experience the vibrant, thriving neighbourhood.

Neil was awesome!! The variety was great, the pace was excellent, and there was a good balance between sweet and savory. He also included stories about the area history and people, we got a sense of “place”. Although we don’t have food allergies/restrictions, some people in our party did and he was very careful to always check. Would highly recommend this tour (and Neil) to anyone.
