Overview

Walking Food & Drink Tours In London are a must. Walk Eat Talk Eat's East London food tour was the first one in the area. We now cover the South and West of London too.

We've had thousands of customers along, shared zillions of stories and are close to serving up our 3000th salt beef bagel.

​We run our East End Tour all through the week and on the weekends that's when we hold our Hidden Gems and Portobello Tales tours.

​Why East London? Because the food is amazing, there's so much history to share and our tour guides have lived in those areas, so they know them inside out and love sharing their local haunts.

I myself have lived in London now for over ten years and I can safely say this city still surprises me with all its hidden secrets old-and-new. What I believe gives us that unique essence is that myself and our tour guides ( even in our spare time ) go in search for new cuisines to be tasted and explore hidden bits of London's history waiting to be spoken about all for you.

Stop At: Rivington Street, Rivington St, London, UK

From learning about parts of Victorian London that haven't been touched for over a hundred years to the very new & electric Brick lane. From seeing all the different cuisines and cultures mixing together to then stop and talk about the old Truman's brewery, which dates back to the mid-1600s and was once the largest brewery in the world.

Your three-hour tour will begin near Old Street Station, whetting your appetite with craft beer and sweet treats from an artisan doughnutry. Then you'll be whisked away to sampling kosher bagels and local real ale or wine. We will explore the bustling Spitalfields market and also try some succulent morcilla or a pick from a selection of Basque pintxos from Sagardi. Further down the lane we go we will taste some delicious homemade pakora / bhaji or samosa from one of the oldest Bangladeshi sweet shops on Brick lane.
At the end of the tour, you'll have the full flavour of the East end - served with a spicy side helping of history along the way.



Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Shoreditch, Shoreditch, London, England

Just nestled away in the very hip and trendy Shoreditch district there lays one of London's hidden secrets from the Victorian era. I can't say too much as It will ruin the surprise of what laid there but in short, this area that we will go to was the epicentre to a pivotal movement that happened in London which then resonated through-out to the rest of the United Kingdom.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Brick Lane Police Station 25 Brick Lane, London E1 6PU England

As we walk down the very electric Brick lane in the East End we will see, taste and smell all the attractions that make it one of the top places to visit in London. From incredible street art & street food to musicians playing music on the lane. This part of London has of recent times kindly welcomed a bohemian sort of person and that has truly lightened up the whole area.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: The Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL England

The Truman's Brewery dates back to the mid 1600s and was the largest brewery in the world at the time. We will walk into where the workers used to clock in and out for work and talk about the history of the building and what lays in front of it for its future. The old brick chimney dominates the sky line and acts as a strong reminder to what this area was known for over the last 500 years. From brewery's, factories, tanneries, distillery's and brick kilns which were all laden along the lane and the surrounding area. I will explain why, on the tour.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Fournier Street, London E1 6QE England

Here we will walk down and talk about the French Huguenots who used to live here after being exiled from France in the 1600s. Their houses still remain intact and with a hefty price tag too. Also this area was known to be Jack the Rippers old stomping grounds which we will talk and explore more about too.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Christ Church Spitalfields, Christ Church Commercial Street Spitalfields, London E1 6LY England

Built in 1714 and designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor (Christopher Wren's apprentice) has stood strong and tall in the area especially when the blitz hit London. Its design was mocked when it was built but now is revered for its beauty. We will talk a little just outside the church and also take in the incredible vantage points of the surrounding area where we can see many other special landmarks too.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Brick Lane Market, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL England

Brick lane market - let's say - is the younger sibling to Spitalfields Market across from Brick Lane. Not too many of the tourists know about it and still is a little hidden gem. This market only opens on the weekend and sometimes on a Friday. If we're lucky to do a tour on one of those days we will surely go inside and have an explore.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Old Spitalfields Market, 16 Horner Square, London E1 6EW England

One of London's oldest markets, from humbled beginnings selling fruit and veg to a very swanky and hip and trendy quarter of London. From latte's to the latest haircut, anything you want can be found here. Also, the building itself is incredible, a sort of cathedral with its incredible steel beams to the vast space it sits on. You can easily get lost in here; which isn't so bad if you ask me.

Duration: 45 minutes

    Great afternoon spent touring the East end of London, learning about the hidden history, whilst imbibing and eating foods from around the world. Eddie was an excellent host. The whole event felt like a trip with good friends. What more can you ask for. A fab social Sunday afternoon! We would highly recommend and will be back for another tour!

    We had booked the tour as our company incentive, and were completely blown away by the whole experience. Eddie and his colleague did an absolutely incredible job at guiding us through East London - from Old Street, to Brick Lane and then Spitalfields Market. Delicious food, both sweet and savoury, ensuring there was something for everyone! I couldn't recommend Eddie more highly, for both a business event or just private. Thank you Eddie!

    We had the most wonderful experience on the tour of the East End with Eddie. The tour was engaging, tasty and fun for all. Our group included three adults, two children and a dog, all of whom had a great time. We all learned new facts about London and got to know some lovely new food places. It is a really nice way to celebrate a special occasion or spend some quality time in the city. We hope to come back for more tours soon and highly recommend this.

    I am from an English school, and our students and I had a wonderful afternoon with our guide, Eddie. He was very patient and communicative. We tried a variety of delicious foods and drinks, took some great photos and videos, and had enjoyable conversations with the entire group. It was a fantastic experience that we would highly recommend

    Just returned home after an absolutely brilliant food tour of the Spitalfields and Brick Lane area by the uber cool main man himself Eddie! I went with 7 members of my family including two children under 10 years of age. The rest were adults. East London was not an area of London I knew particularly well beforehand. However, thanks to Eddie and the tour it's an area that I want to know more about! The cultural history, diversity, food and just the overall vibe of the area was just amazing. We started with Eddie telling us about the history of the different communities that came to the area and learnt about some if the modern day artisans that make the whole area so unique. We also sampled a range of delicious food during the 3-hour tour such as samosas and sweet treats, artisan chocolate truffles, and we bought proper hot chocolate from Dark Sugar which was uber rich and just delicious, salt beef bagels from the world famous Beigel Bakery on Brick Lane, artisan sourdough doughnuts and ended with bubble tea! Overall, the day was such great fun and Eddie elevated the trip and tour to another level. Thank you so much Eddie for everything and for making the day so special. See you again soon for another visit shortly. Great job!👏👏👏👏
