Full description
When you book this tour, the supplier will be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality, tastes and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local who can create a bespoke experience for you. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Your outing will start at Spitalfields Market, one of the area’s oldest markets over 350-years-old. Here, you will wander around the eclectic mix of retail and restaurant stalls to explore over two stories of this gorgeous stone edifice, which is like a hipster version of Covent Garden. Your local will meet you at the market, where you will stop for a coffee at a cafe that many locals swear serves the best coffee in town. Here, your local will have some time to get to know you and what you are eager to experience. They will fit their insider knowledge of the area to your individual needs. The tour is unscripted so even though you will book an initial timeline, the day might evolve in different directions to ensure that you experience Shoreditch your way.  Wander off to Brick Lane, which is the most visited narrow lane in East London. Londoner’s argue it has some of the world’s best Indian food, outside of India, but there are quirky cafes, record shops, vintage shops, market stalls and more. There is much to discover here, on a street that is as rich in history as it is in cuisine. Along the way you’ll make tangents exploring warehouse conversions of vintage shops and outposts of trendy clothing designers. If you are up for lunch, you could stop at a buzzy restaurant serving a range of wonderfully tasty Indian street food dishes.  After this, you can explore the two-level bespoke shipping containers where artists and creative designers exhibit and sell their work. There are also restaurants and bars with several terraces to eat, drink and look out over the urban sights. Finally, head to Old Street via Hoxton, known for its vibrant nightlife. Your local will lead you past some of the trendiest bars and rooftop gardens. Wander down side streets to view some great street art and uncover hidden gems such as a motorcycle cafe within the fabric of the community. After a thorough exploration of Old Street, your local will leave you with tips on where to head next, and places to see during the rest of your trip.

    Excellent tour!

    I had Alice as a guide. Time passed us very quickly since it was very enjoyable and shared a lot of historical data about London. It was lovely to all the places where it took me. I have been to London several times and by far this tour has been one of the best if you want to know the non-tourist of London.
