New for 2013!!! An afternoon exploring a NEW area of London with a NEW guide. Looking forward to enjoying this experience with you all! Cheers, Kelly
About this event:
You may know Islington for its quirky bars and restaurants... take a step back in time and you'll find its links to food go back to the Middle Ages. This walk looks at how Islington has kept London fed for the last 800 years. You'll spend one and a half hour walking through one of London’s liveliest areas. You’ll hear about dishes like White Conduit Rolls, Islington Cheesecake and White Pot; Cream and Cake Boys, Nippies and Merry Milkmaids. You’ll even get to see the home of Webb’s Soda Water and Mad Frankie Frasers favourite café.
And if you have no idea what I just said, at the very least you'll find a few new hotspots to return to and enjoy a nice day out with fellow taste adventurers.
If you like exploring London’s side streets or simply want to build up an appetite than join fellow Tastourians on the 9th February and get a taste of Islington.
About the Guide
Rob has a strong interest in social history, and the way that inventions have changed people’s lives. On his walks you will hear stories of his London heroes and anecdotes that make history come to life.
Robs says: ‘The thing I like best about London is how a tiny thing, like a decoration on a building can tell a really big story.’

‘Great day out! I thought I knew a lot about London, but the excellent, knowledgeable guide proved me wrong. It was a good mix of enjoyable people, learning about places I’ve already been and discovering a few hidden gems. Providing the map and links was a real bonus’ Tastourian, Janet
