What you'll do
Whether you're looking for the creme de la creme of the patisserie world, artsy and trendy bakeries, kid friendly sweet shops or the traditional British favourites, your Local Host will introduce you to the perfect neighbourhood for your sweet-toothed interests.
Perhaps you'll want to start by exploring some of the best of British cakes, patisseries and traditional favourites (think fresh cream scones and Bakewell tarts). If you're keen to start on something more refreshing, head straight to one of the city’s many artisan gelaterias for a cooling sorbet, creamy chocolate or smooth vanilla. Chocoholic or pastry fan? Look no further, your Local Host will whisk you off to some of the most delightful chocolateries to sample some handcrafted morsels, or to one of the traditional patisseries to indulge in anything from buttery croissants straight from the oven, to choux pastry buns and classic macaroons.
This isn’t just about the treats however, and with your knowledgeable Local Host by your side you can discover what makes each of these places so special, learning about their influential founders and how these bakeries have played (and still play) such important role in the local community! Your Local Host will happily to tell you about the treats they create and sell, exactly how they are made, and the history of their recipes.
However you choose to spend your time, you’ll also indulge in architecture, sights and atmosphere of the neighbourhood you choose, while working up an appetite for the next cake, sweet treat or ice cream!

A good mix of stops, from chocolate to ice cream and cheese.
I had a great tour with Lynne on a cloudy weekend in October. There was a good mix of stops, from chocolate to ice cream and cheese. We even got to see how the ice cream was made. I wouldn't recommend a big breakfast before the tour, as there's plenty to taste!

Perfect for chocoholics
I've had the pleasure and honour to enjoy a Sweet Tooth Tour in summer. The guide (Lynne) was very competent and passionate. Her local insights allowed me (an outspoken chocoholic) to discover places I otherwise wouldn't.
