Meet Ann just outside Exit 3 (in front of the Royal Exchange) of Bank Underground Station. 

Learn all about our traditional Christmas food.

And to whet your appetite, here’s a brilliant little podcast about this tour.

Touches all the bases: meet your guide, be thoroughly entertained, learn some tasty stuff and find out about the walk.

Turkey, stuffing, bread sauce, Brussels sprouts. Xmas pudding, Xmas cake, mince pies…you’ll be eating them soon.

Pick up all sorts of titbits to astonish your Xmas dining companions – the turkeys that walked to London, the chequered history of the sprout, the rise and fall of the goose.

Salivate over grand pudding recipes, shudder over workhouse Xmas fare. And the meaty past of the mince pie – make sure you eat 12 of them next month…and we end at that feast for the senses, Borough Market, where you can stock up on Xmas supplies.

    Ann shared her extensive knowledge on the history of Christmas Eating in such an engaging way and this was bought to life by the surroundings. Highly recommend!

  5. Maggie Mainland

    Great walk and interesting Christmas facts. Loved the story about OldTom!
    Anne was a truly great guide and will definitely do another good walk with her
    Pity about the weather which couldn’t be avoided it was freezing! Suppose that was the added extra Christmas effect!

    Thoroughly enjoyed this amazing foodie walk through the heart of the City of London and the ancient alleyways and ending at food heaven Borough Market . Ann was a fantastic guide, so knowledgeable and entertaining telling us all about history of food and sprinkling in lots of fun stories and quotes from Dickens. Absolutely loved this walk, highly recommended. We can’t wait for the next one .
