WHY GO?


Situated in the historic Victorian railway arches of London Bridge, Vinopolis gives wine lovers the chance to embark on an adventure for the taste buds.

The tour has an awesome range of wines on offer and gives everyone the chance to learn about the secrets of wine tasting so you can impress your friends with your fountain of wine-related knowledge.

HOW DOES IT WORK?


There's a choice of various different wine experience packages with 7, 12 or 16 token to spend on different wines, champagne and even absinth. There's a tour for every budget.

A short intro to the tour teaches you to slurp and guzzle correctly before setting you free in the labyrinth of wine rooms.

It's a uniquely personal experience with interactive quizzes to discover how your marmite fetish and so on, might reflect what wines to give a go or avoid.

There's no need to bring a notebook either, because Vinopolis will send you a list of what you've tried, if you register with them.

EAT?


From pizza and steaks to the tapas bar, there's an extensive range of foodie favourites to fill you up before you go rogue in the wine areas.

We tried the yummy tapas board, with freshly cut meats, cheeses, olives and other nibbles. Perfect with a glass of wine in hand.

THE LOWDOWN


The packages range in price from £27 with 7 tokens for up to 2 hours, to £38 with 16 tokens for up to 3 hours.

It's open daily but the tapas bar is closed on Sundays.

They've a wine and dine package for £35 per person on Sundays, with a 2 course Sunday roast and bloody mary included.
