Walk of the Week: Foodies London - The West End


Every Sunday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it centre stage.



You can check out the full schedule at www.walks.com.



But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…



Foodies London – The West End

Saturday 28th May 10:45a.m Green Park Station (meet by the fountain)


What did Oscar Wilde have for lunch? Who bought their beef tea at Fortnums? Which king took a roast chicken to bed for a night time snack (and that's after 11 courses at dinner). For the answer to these and many other foodie questions - and for a visit to a street market and a foodie look at Chinatown, join Ann's walk looking at how Londoners dined downtown in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Meet Ann just outside the Green Park exit of Green Park Tube. (Within snapping-our-fingers-distance-at-the-Head-Waiter of the Ritz Hotel, of course. And what gourmet dish was invented at the Ritz? Well, come and find out.)



Your guide:

Ann

Quondam BBC journalist and current star Blue Badge Guide, Ann knows everything there is to know about food: its history, where to buy it, how to cook it, how to enjoy it and, into the bargain, how to keep your figure! Of which she's an exemplar!!







A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
