Shoreditch is a cultural hub in East London: a quirky, interesting and creative area that showcases new art, fashion and music. Did you know that William Shakespeare wrote and performed plays here? Or that, despite London having no café culture just a few years ago, Shoreditch is now a place where you can sample the best coffee from around the world? And what about all those creatives and artists who started out in warehouses and transformed this area into the largest creative district in Europe?
We invite you to join us for the 'Art & Coffee/Tea' tour and explore the most interesting galleries, creative spaces and coffee/tea shops that Shoreditch has to offer. You will meet other Londoners, see the place where Romeo and Juliet was first performed, visit the best galleries in the area, taste coffee and tea, meet coffee experts who will teach you about three waves of coffee culture, play some games, network and be inspired by all the creative places we have to show you!
This tour is very informal and provides a great opportunity for you to talk to like minded individuals, make new friends and spend your weekend in a more creative way.
The tour is around 3.5 hours long and the ticket price includes entrance to all galleries, a Bubble Tea tasting, two Coffee tastings and a slice of very delicious cake.
