Here is our guide to London Food Month’s best featured food events, guaranteed to tickle the fancy of all types of taste buds!
Carnaby Street Eat, Soho: 2 June
Weekend shopping on Oxford Street – as exciting and fun as it can be, the experience can also be very tiring and overwhelming at the same time! Well, we’ve found the perfect place for you to refuel, get energized, while experiencing some of London’s most amazing food during your shopping break.
On Saturday June 2, just a few streets away in Soho, over 30 of Carnaby Street’s best restaurants, cafés and bars will be setting up on the street for an epic food fiesta!
Caraby Street is located in the heart of London's West End, just two-minutes away from Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus. The bustling street is famous for its incredible restaurants, cafés & shops.
The street fest will be an opportunity to sample some incredible food without the amount of time and money it would take to dine in each individual eatery (although wouldn’t that be nice!)
Some of the vendors will include: Cinnamon Soho, Pizza Pilgrims, Dirty Bones, The Detox Kitchen, and more.
So head on down on 2 June for some delicious fun in the heart of the city! It’ll be “soho” great, and entry is free!
