Greater London, United Kingdom

Our tour begins at St. John Bakery where we’ll try their delicious doughnuts to get the tour started off right. From there, we’ll walk up Borough High Street stopping along the way to talk a bit about history, restaurants, pubs, and anything else we feel like chatting about. Our second stop is right near Borough Market, one of the oldest public markets in London, where we’ll sample some more amazing donuts. Make sure you pace yourself - it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Our third stop is actually in Borough Market itself where you’ll sample some absolutely stunning doughnuts that are made fresh every day in their pastry school. And our last and final stop at Crosstown Doughnuts will give you a jaw dropping view of Tower Bridge that you have to see to believe. We’re so excited to get this tour started and we hope you can join us!

We absolutely loved this tour! Our tour guide Dan was so knowledgeable and friendly, and we had a great walk around the London Bridge area learning about some of the history and not to mention all of the delicious donut stops. We tried new flavours we’d not had before and loved them. I’d definitely recommend for anyone wanting a day out in London, and especially for those donut lovers :)

The guide I had(his name is Dan) was very good at sharing the history of London. He even gave recommendations for food stalls I should get food from and ones I should avoid,Dan even brought me into a bird and blend tea shop (despite smelling a few teas, I ended up ordering cherry cola bottles tea, which I thoroughly enjoyed and drank before). I did a similar tour in Dublin, and I didn’t find it as good as this one.

We truly loved this tour. We showed up, met Oscar, and discovered that we had our own tour guide, since we were the only two to book the tour for the day. It was so neat having our own personal “donut and history” guide. Oscar not only got us some amazing donuts, but also took on a true history tour of the borough. We highly recommend the tour and the guide. We hope to do a tour like this back home!

Oscar was a great host! My husband and I were lucky enough to get a private tour. It was tailored to that, so was even more fun. The donuts and tea were amazing, but Oscar really made the experience shop much more. Highly recommend!

It was chilly Saturday morning, but once we met our guide, Oscar, our thoughts went quickly to the donut tour we we about to embark on. Our first stop was the St John Bakery on Borough Corner. The donuts here were delicious, as were the other three donut shops’ donuts we tried. Oscar was a great guide, being a history nut, he gave us great insight of the history of the Southwark neighborhood. We also made a stop at the famous Borough Market. What an amazing place and full of energy and I can’t wait to back there and spend a full morning there. I highly recommend Underground Donut Tours. Check them out! If you are in London be sure to ask for Oscar!

The tour idea is amazing!! I’m not a regular tourist but this tour has given me new perspectives of Borough Market and lots of cute doughnuts bakery , pubs and tea shop!! Huge thanks to my tour guide Bhavani, she’s very friendly and personable and also has a great knowledge of all the places along the tour.

An amazing tour!! I have lived in London for a couple of years and still learned so many new interesting historical facts! All the doughnuts were amazing and 2 hours of touring really went quick. My tour guide Bhavani was very knowledgeable and made it a really fun tour. Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves history or doughnuts :)

I had an absolutely amazing time with my friends during this doughnut tour. Bhavani was an excellent tour guide. Was able to learn so much about the history and overall was a great experience! Would most certainly recommend, very enjoyable, especially if you have bhavani!

Whoops, looks like something went wrong.
