Try some of the delicious food it has to offer, each bite representative of one of the communities that migrated to London and ended up living ‘beyond the wall’. On our Free East End Food Tour you decide what to get based on your cravings and budget!

Enjoy London’s favourite chips, according to Time Out Magazine, as you hear about the Irish who fled their country during the potato famine and ended up in the East End building canals and railways. Try a delicious salted beef bagel and learn about the arrivals of Jewish people who escaped from Eastern Europe throughout the 19th century.

Discover how Bangladeshi cuisine had such an impact in British culture! Indulge in some devilishly good West African chocolate and finish the tour with a fresh juice in a hidden hipster juice bar as you make up your mind over one of the most controversial topics in the East End: gentrification.

No other place in London is a bigger reflection of this than the area east of the City Walls. On our Free Food Tour you will understand why this post-industrial brick-loaded London has become such a magnet for foodies all over the world!

*On our Free East End Food Tour you decide how much you eat and spend. Forget about paying £60 to £80; you choose what you eat with the help of our guides and if you get an item from each place it’ll only cost you around £15 to £20 in total, even less if you’re sharing! You are also welcome to come along even if you don’t want to eat anything; you’ll learn about the area and London’s fascinating food culture.

Fun AND Filling!

5 out of 5

We took the food tour with Ed. He was a FANTASTIC tour guide. He took us to some amazing places to sample food, while sharing a history of food and London's culture! The places Ed shared with us on this tour were places we would not have found on our own! Thank you, Ed, for making this experience so much fun!!

Discover the gems in the area

My husband and I had so much fun on our food tour with Paddy exploring the area around Shoreditch and tasting different food from the gems in the area! He was very knowledgeable about the area and passionate about the food scene there-not to mention gave great recommendations about what his favorite things were at each stop-we got them every time and it did not disappoint! Thanks for the fun experience in a very cool area we had not experienced yet in London!
