Brighton Food Tours - Sustainable, community focused and eco-friendly
Brighton Food Tours is the only award winning and exclusively food & drink focused tour company in the city. The tours celebrate the best the independent food & drink sector has to offer. We take customers on a 3 hour walk around Brighton tasting the food, meeting the vendors and hearing about our important cultural landmarks and local history. All our vendors are independent businesses who support and sustain local suppliers and workers. We actively work with vendors who ensure their packaging is biodegradable and waste is minimised. All our tours are completed on foot and we encourage customers to arrive by public transport.
We are focused on celebrating a
wide variety of vendors from gourmet restaurants to market stalls. We believe
good food is for everybody and affordability and accessibility to
high quality, fresh food is something all sectors of our community should have.
To this end the tour includes less well known parts of town; taking tours to
discover the London Rd area and introducing customers to ethical and
sustainable food champions such as HISBE Supermarket, Infinity Foods and
the Brighton & Hove Food Partnership and their amazing Community Kitchen.
Brighton is an amazing city and we are proud to share it's rich historical and cultural stories. There is so much local food history to share. whether it's about the herring fishing that sustained the settlement of Brighthelmstone or the amazing kitchens the Prince Regent had installed in the gorgeous Royal Pavilion. The quirky creativity of the city permeates into it's food establishments too; you can visit a restaurant where the staff will sing to you as they wear mechanical hats or visit a tea room where the proprietor insists the national anthem is played every afternoon and the customers stand for the occasion.
There are so many local producers
to celebrate here; local wine, cheese, meat, cider, fruits and vegetables - all
from the local and Living Coast area. There is butter made in Brighton from a
hand churner, the best pittas you have ever had, epic hummus made by a local
family firm, award winning burgers, a cornucopia of gelato and an oyster bar
that is over 100 years old.
Come and visit and we will show
you it all!
