We’ve always advocated that one of the best ways to educate yourself about a new city and its culture is via its local food. Sign up for one of the many tours available, some secret and some not so much, that will allow you close to 3 hours to simply immerse yourself in British food culture and introduce you to best places to grab some local grub.

Alternatively, check The Tourist’s Guide British Gastronomy by food.social and begin your own hunt.
