      The best private food tours in London

      British cuisine isn’t all fish and chips and full English breakfast (although not sampling a quintessentially British bite on a London food tour would be an injustice). London today is a global dining destination, taking flavors from all over the world and fusing them into dishes that don’t exist anywhere else. The sheer diversity of food in London is dizzying – centuries-old markets and traditional pubs are just the tip of a colossal iceberg of international cuisine and modern British specialties. Whether you’re looking for hearty English fare or contemporary cuisine in the city’s coolest boroughs, a food tour in London has something to suit every palate.

      The world in one city

      Centuries of immigration have made London a multicultural masterpiece with a profusion of culinary choice. London food is an A to Z of cuisines, and a food tour could have you spending your morning in Istanbul, your afternoon in Egypt, and your evening in Peru. Authentic international cuisine can be found in the city’s many ethnic enclaves, but their flavors tend to come together in incredibly creative ways at the food markets scattered throughout the city. From pomegranate halloumi fries to Szechuan butter peppercorn prawns, street food in London is a world tour flavorful fusions.

      Don’t listen to the food snobs, because British cuisine has long outgrown its bland and beige reputation. Modern British fare is homely, hearty, and delicious, and London’s traditional restaurants and centuries-old pubs still proudly hold their own in the influx of trendy new eateries. A food tour in London with a local insider is the ideal way to make up your own mind about British cuisine. Once you’ve filled up on perfectly roasted meats, seasonal root vegetables, flaky pies, and afternoon tea, you might find yourself passionately defending the honor of the traditional British menu.

      Something for your sweet tooth

      When it comes to sweets, nowhere does it better than London. Between authentic Milanese bakeries, Japanese confectioneries, and world-renowned French patisseries, your afternoon tea break on a London food tour might last a little longer than you intended. And then there are the city’s own sweet treats – England is renowned for its feel-good desserts, and you’ll find the best of the best on a food tour in London. Sticky, stodgy (in the best way possible) puddings, iconic Eton mess, and baked fruit under a blanket of buttery crumble are sure to end any experience on a high.

        We enjoyed this tour, and Becky was one of the main reasons. Great conversations and recommendations on the market. Once we were stuffed at the market, we had a nice stroll on the river as she pointed out several interesting and historical items.

        This was the best thing I could have done with the short time I had in London. Ana M. was FANTASTIC at showing me around the market and communicating with me beforehand. She tailored every moment according to things I liked. She had a love of food and a terrific knowledge of the local community. I would suggest this to anyone who would like to try the food London has to offer.

        What an amazing food tour with Ana Ortiz. We met in the hotel lobby and then traveled together into the maze of the Borough Market. We exchanged several emails about likes, dislikes, interests, previous travel and past food experiences prior to the tour. Ana used that information to perfection to make some amazing choices that combined British tradition like teas and Scotch eggs with surprising international dishes and beverages from places like India, Spain, Colombia and Iraq. I would never have imagined leaving London as a new fan of Iraqi cooking!! We ended the day with some mulled wine as a reminder of ancient Roman influences that persist in modern London. Ana was fun to be around and was genuinely interested in making the tour perfect. At no time were we rushed. She made it clear that the tour wasn’t set in stone, so if we noticed something interesting as we passed by a shop it was fair game. As an American unaccustomed to buying food in a traditional market, it was also fun watching her go back and forth with the vendors to make sure everything was just right. We also bought several items to take home for gifts and self indulgent treats along the route. At the end, Ana helped us find the next stop on our itinerary, which was close to the market, but not as easy to find as one might expect. Don’t eat breakfast beforehand, and don’t clean your plate at every stop. You will still get plenty to eat by the end and I predict that you will go away with a very different idea about British food than you arrived with!! Very highly recommended!

        Love how Elle showed us all the different types of food available at the market, while also providing all the history and culture surrounding it.
