You’ll be taken through markets, bakeries, shops, restaurants and pubs as local guides showcase the culinary traditions which have helped shape this distinctive part of the city.
Twilight Solo Food Tour
Soho offers up plenty of great sights and tastes, as those who take part in the Twilight Soho Food Tour know very well.
