Our vegetarian food tour in Brighton is very unique. In fact, it is the only one of its kind in the city that operates daily. One of the first vegetarian restaurants in Brighton, Food for Friends, opened their doors in the early 80s. Undoubtedly, there was not a lot of competition at that time. For instance, the only other places that served food without meat were Indian eateries with buffets and the Buddhist Centre. In contrast, today Brighton can crown itself as the capital of the vegetarian food scene.
In general, Brits have reduced meat consumption over the past years. Equally, people have also become more conscious about what they eat. On the whole, Brighton has a wide range of restaurants, pubs and food trucks, that serve vegetarian food. As a result, there are a variety of option to choose from. For instance, from high-end to street food, and anything in between. Therefore, join us on this vegetarian food tour, so you can scratch the surface of those exciting meatless options.
Brighton is without a doubt the number one place to visit outside London. First, there a lot of fun and cool things to do in this quirky city. Second, it is also the place where everything is possible. In general, it only takes 1 hour from London Victoria or 1 hour 20 minutes from St. Pancras by train. Besides, ‘London by the sea’, which is Brighton’s nickname, is just a 35 minutes ride from Gatwick Airport. Therefore, its location is perfect for a city break or day trip from London.
There is not much left from the original fishing village Brighton once was. In contrast, you can still admire much of the city’s 18th and 19th-century charm. For instance, different architectural styles and majestic buildings. This is what makes Brighton such a special place. Whether you travel solo, as a family or as a group of friends, there is always something to do. Any reason is a good reason to visit.
Our Brighton vegetarian food tour starts at the entrance of the St. Bartholomew’s Church, which is near Brighton Station. In fact, it is only a 3 minutes walk. You can do the tour either in the morning or in the afternoon. First, we start with a brief introduction and what you can expect on this tour. Second, we make our way to the central city. There you learn about Brighton and get to see famous Brighton landmarks and must-visit areas.
