After-hours tour around West Norwood Cemetery's most famous foodie graves + afternoon tea in the Greek temple!
Who introduced the vine to Australia, salmon fishing to Tasmania and railway catering to Britain? Who turned loaves into cubes? Was Mrs Beeton the domestic goddess of her day?
These and many other pioneers of our everyday foods and drinks are buried in West Norwood’s leafy Gothic Cemetery. Expert guides share the stories behind our Victorian entrepreneurs in an exclusive after-hours tour (1 ¼ hours).
As part of West Norwood’s Food Week the neighbourhood’s new Tulse Hill Hotel, rounds off the tour with a tempting afternoon tea inspired by these 19th century foodies in the atmospheric Greek Chapel.
House Rules: The cemetery terrain can be uneven so please wear suitable footwear and be prepared for the 1.5 hour tour.
Feast's Food Week is returning in June 2017, and this year we are teaming up with Station to Station: West Norwood and Tulse Hill Business Improvement District for a series foodie events at your favourite West Norwood and Tulse Hill venues. We are celebrating all things cultural, creative and artistic, so if it's poetry, art, storytelling or dance that catches your eye, come and join us!
The week is powered by West Norwood Feast, the monthly community-run market, and Station to Station: West Norwood and Tulse Hill Business Improvement District. Our aim is to showcase many of the great eateries that West Norwood and Tulse Hill now have to offer.
