3. Restaurant hopping tours

There aren’t many chances to eat at six different restaurants in one evening, but during LFW, your dining dreams are possible. Spanish food fans should sign up for the tapas tour, where you’ll visit Camino, Coptia and Iberica (Farringdon) or if you’re more of a sushi lover, try the Japanese Journey, with stops at Bo Drake, Tonkotzu East and Shoryu. If you’re up for trying a bit of everything, the Carnaby Street tour includes a mix of cuisines at Rosa’s Thai Cafe, Peruvian restaurant Señor Ceviche and American BBQ grill Shotgun.

4. Eat Film

The popular Eat Film event returns to BAFTA’s Piccadilly headquarters for one night only. Diners will tuck into a three course dinner before enjoying a film in this iconic setting. The food and wine will be prepared by BAFTA’s head chef, Anton Manganaro, on 1 October at 6pm. Find out more at londonrestaurantfestival/eat-film
