Join your guide in Brixton, a lively neighborhood just south of the Thames in London, and set out on your 3-hour food walking tour. Old-school charm and a funky vibe combine in this bustling district, and your guide will shed light on Brixton’s history and its exciting foodie scene as you walk.
Learn about Brixton’s history of political protest, and how it’s lately emerged as one of London’s most vibrant multi-cultural areas, with a mix of heritages all adding to the cooking pot of world cuisine found here.
Hear about ex-Brixtonites like David Bowie, and amble around the roads and arcades that make up Brixton’s markets, some of the last authentic versions of their kind in London. Enjoy several food stops to sample some delicious goodies for yourself. Tastings vary on every tour, but expect to try dishes such as an Afro-Caribbean breakfast, a Portuguese custard tart and an award-winning cupcake.
Stroll along Electric Avenue, and see murals juxtaposed with handsome Victorian architecture. Discover Brixton’s pop-up restaurants and hear how Michelin-starred chefs such as Alain Ducasse praise the diversity of foods found here, such as Caribbean, Chinese, European and South American.
Enjoy other goodies such as a local craft beer, and perhaps try making your own ice cream. In between walking and tasting, stop to chat with some innovative food retailers to learn their culinary secrets and about the area's gastronomic heritage.
Your tour then finishes back at the original start point.
