Brighton Food Tours offer award-winning walking tours, taking visitors off the beaten track to explore the best our independent food scene has to offer. Groups are led by knowledgeable and passionate guides; taking them to meet vendors, taste food and hear stories behind their work and our fantastic city.
Brighton Food Tours is the first and only foodie walking tour company in Brighton. Anyone interested in food, drink and local history will enjoy what we have to offer. Our tours take you on a journey to enjoy the taste of real independent Brighton beyond just the pier, pavilion and the pebble beach. You get to experience a different flavour of our spirited city, discover our favourite foodie Brighton hotspots, hear the stories, passions and politics behind their products and best of all, try some tasty samples.
While we can create almost any type of bespoke tour requested our core tours are currently:
- Our award winning signature VIB (Very Independent Brighton) Tour; a smorgasbord offering from amazing street food, award winning bakeries and artisan chocolates to oysters and wine.
- The fantastic Wine Rebellion Tour – sampling wines from different venues in the city, trying new things and hopefully inspiring a little controversy on the way.
- The Drinks Tour – sampling a range of drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic with a little food to keep you going.
Our tours are typically 3 hours long and we fix our groups to a ratio of 1 guide to 10 customers. We can scale this up to almost any number but still maintain the personal nature of our tours. On a 3 hour tour customers will visit 6 or 7 venues, tasting food, meeting vendors and getting discounts on any shopping they may wish to purchase on the way. Guides will also show the visitors some of the landmarks of the city, sharing stories of our city, some of our notable citizens and some of the politics behind the food & drink scene.
As well as our core tour offering we are also able to create bespoke events on any day of the week, for variable groups sizes, adapting stops and routes to suit age groups, culinary tastes and specific events. We can create company away days, corporate team building events, private tours for families, birthdays, classy hen or stag dos or educational events. We can do just about anything - just ask us and we will create something to suit you.

Private tour groups must be a minimum of 6 people.

Smaller bookings of couples and individuals can join our regular tour groups, bookable via our website.Frequency of tour:
