Posted by London Guided Walks on Wednesday, March 30, 2016, In : Eating 
Londoners can now eat a rainbow on Brick Lane thanks to the rainbow coloured beigels on sale at Brick Lane's Beigel Shop (that's the yellow signed one). It is Britain's oldest and very first open 24hrs 365 days a year beigel shop. The Beigel Shop can be found at 155 Brick Lane, E1 6SB.

A taste of old Europe in London

Posted by Guided walks in London on Friday, March 4, 2016, In : Eating 

As a tour guide I am often asked where to eat in London. Having worked and lived in central London for many years I have been fortunate to have sampled many a menu. The Delaunay is a treat. 


The restaurant is the latest project from Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, famous for the Wolseley.  You don't have to cross the Channel for a taste of old Europe. The main dining room is superb, panelled and spacious. We very much enjoyed our table (no. 14) which meant we could sit next to one anot...
