Taste of London Microgap

Taste of London Microgap

3 Days

A short break explores a city. A microgap feels it, tastes it, and sees it from a whole new perspective. Take a buzzing city. A melting pot of cultures and cuisines. And some of the best aerial views in the world. Welcome to a London microgap – a taste of London, and a taste for heights.

Day 1

Hiver Beer & Soho Twilight Tour

Hiver Beer & Beekeeping

Beekeeping in London? Honey in beer? Yes, really. Nestled in the heart of Kennington Park are Hiver Beer’s very own bee hives, producing honey that is a valuable ingredient for their honey beer. With all the kit and protection provided, visitors can try their hand at collecting the honey, learning all about the role it plays in the beer production along the way. With tastings and explanation about the processes involved, it’s a unique experience, just a stone’s throw from the city centre.

Soho Twilight Tour

One way to experience Soho, in central London, is to soak up its bright lights and lively nightlife. But we’ve got a better idea. Rather than dancing the night away, how’s about a culinary tour around this vibrant heart of London? – sampling everything from Chinese dumplings to Spanish ham, all washed down with some of the classiest cocktails you’ll find in the city.

Day 2

Up at the O2 & Secret Food Tours Craft Beer Tour

Up at the O2

52 metres above ground level, what more refreshing way to start the morning than by climbing to the top of the O2 – the world’s most popular entertainment venue? Boots on. Harnesses in place. All that remains is to follow the walkway up and enjoy the views for up to 15 miles.

Day 3

Borough Market Food Tour & the View from the Shard

Borough Market – Celia Brooks

Borough market has to be seen to be believed. Tucked away in the railway arches, not far from London Bridge station, it is both a culinary feast, and a feast for the senses. Brightly coloured fruit and veg adorn bustling stalls. Freshly baked bread and cakes are piled high. The aroma of freshly cooked street food fill the air, accompanied by the calls of the traders selling their dishes to the hungry crowds (get there early to avoid the lunchtime queue!) The sheer choice can be a little overwhelming for a first time visitor, so we recommend a tour with Celia Brooks. That’s 3 hours, browsing the stalls, tasting samples, and getting an insider’s guide to what the market has to offer.

View from the Shard

At 95 storeys, The Shard is Western Europe’s tallest building. And it’s just round the corner from Borough Market. Opened in 2012, the building is home to offices, apartments, and a hotel (no better to place to take a swim 200m above sea level!). Lifts which travel at a breath-taking 6 metres a second take visitors to the indoor viewing gallery on the 69th floor, and the open air Sky Deck on the 72nd floor. It’s one of the few places from which the landmarks of London look like Lego models. The trains looks like a model railway. And the bustling commuters look like busy ants, rushing to and fro.
