Tasty Walking Tours of London

Tasty Walking Tours of London Whether you’re new in town or a local wanting to see the city through a fresh set of eyes, a Tastour Walk will reveal London’s highlights, whilst keeping you far away from the tourist traps and crowded streets.

Our walks are exclusively designed for Tastour.

What makes our walks different?

We don’t just focus on history…

You’ll  introduced to the places recently featured popular magazines like The Metro,  Evening Standard… and dare we say, The Sun.

We always meet inside a pub or restaurant…

If you arrive early, you’ll be warm, cozy and will have the option of enjoying a nice refreshment in comfort.  And more importantly, you won’t be left wondering if your standing in the right spot.

We keep the group small and intimate…

So that you can enjoy your guide’s presentation.  There’s nothing worse than a guided tour with more than 30 people.

Our walks usually end with a tasty bang!

Each walk ends with an optional special treat…. If may be an award-winning afternoon tea, or a drink on the 15th Floor, but rest assured, it will be something special and memorable.

Who leads our walks?

Our walks are led by a passionate and friendly Blue Badge or City of Westminster guide, who will share with you London’s fascinating and delicious food and drink history and hotspots.  With snippets of information, fun facts and top recommendations, as well as ample taste opportunities along the way, you’ll get to experience our gastronomic capital whilst meeting and mingling with a small group of like-minded people, during a fun, leisurely walk.

What areas of London do we cover?

We have seven fascinating walks in the Tastour series. All of which focuses on exploring famous pubs, restaurants, bars… and let’s not forget historical and modern day Bon Vivants.  Add in a few fantastic food related shops and a bit of Art History and this afternoon of discovery will give you a taste of an area you will surely want to return to!
