There’s no better way to get to London than exploring London on foot. A few years ago, there weren’t many London walking tours to choose from aside from the classic ones like the Jack The Ripper Tour or the London Ghost Tour.
Today you can find many more options for London walking tours that help visitors really get a feel for what London has to offer. Depending on what your interests are, there are a lot of options to choose from.
Unlike the big bus tours where you only see the highlights from a distance, walking around with a guide, can often mean discovering hidden places that most people just pass by because they are too busy running from one end of the city to the other.
Many Londoners are also starting to go on walking tours because they are aware of how little they know of this great city, and are keen to discover more!
One particularly interesting way to get to know London, is through Food Tours. London food tours are a new concept that has been breaking out in cities all over the world. They combine culture, history, tastings, and exploring new territory on foot, with a local expert. Unlike other London walking tours, where you simply walk from place to place, Food Tours allow you to go into shops, get to know new places and experience tastes that you may have never tried before.
Although you can find a wide variety of food tours in classic “foodie” cities like Rome, New York and Chicago, London is very new to the concept of Food Tours. Many people still don’t know what an incredible culinary offering that London has to offer! Walking around and exploring new restaurants and international cuisines might be one of the best new concepts that exist! London Food Lovers offers a very unique walking tour called the Soho International Food Tour. It is a 4 hour exploration on foot, where people can try a variety of international cuisines, while they learn about new places, the history of how those foods arrived to London, and taste new flavours! Exploring London on foot never tasted so good!
