The Honey Festival @ the Royal Festival Hall

The London Honey Festival is a celebration of London Honey

from across the capital as far as Croydon to Bexley, Tottenham to Ruislip, King's Cross to the Royal Festival Hall.


During August London restaurants will be creating dishes with the Capital's honey, while some shops will be selling pots of London's local season harvest.
