Full description
Starting in Piccadilly Circus (London’s beating heart), this stylish London food tour will take you through some of the city’s best spots for chocolates, desserts, and British tea and scones. You begin with a visit to the Queen’s own grocer and see some of the foods available within Buckingham Palace. You’ll also get to discover some of the greatest luxury brands at the world’s first glass-enclosed arcade, which just happens to be frequented by Hollywood A-listers, European aristocrats, and other rich and famous folks when they’re in town.

Then dip a toe into London’s iconic Soho district as you explore Carnaby Street’s food and vibrant culture, and learn the funny — and sometimes scandalous — stories of the writers, musicians, and actors who have all called this corner of London their home. Relax in one of the most lavish, outlandish chocolate and cake stores you’ve ever seen, where even the statues can be eaten. 

Finally after exploring London's Carnaby Street and its stylish shopping and dining areas, head to the final, secret, location. There to indulge in a tradition as rich as the monarchy. British scones baked upon your arrival and served with clotted cream and high end preserves, all while enjoying exquisite rare blend teas or barista made coffee.
