This Funzing Experience:

Join your tour guide on a Sunday morning trip to visit the Norwegian and Finnish churches in Rotherhithe - the hubs of London's Nordic community and learn all about Nordic London.

Meet Finnish & Norwegian locals, find out about Nordic customs & culture and enjoy an optional and authentic Norwegian buffet lunch - meatballs anyone? - plus as much coffee, cake & waffles as you can eat for only £10!!

The community have invited you to start the tour at their short & informal church service (if this worries you, rest assured it's a very pretty church, there's nice singing and it's really interesting to see how things are done).

The ticket price includes a community guide, a run down of the history of the churches & their communities, an introduction to Norwegian language & culture, a Q&A with Jens (a handsome young pastor at the church) and a chance to be part of the community for a day.

You will also be visiting the neighbouring Finnish church and if you like, you can book into the secret sauna in the church after the rest of the group has gone home. There are opportunities to buy food & gifts at the church stores. We can guarantee you'll be an expert on Nordic London by the time you go home!

The tour is led by Vicki, a Greek-Russian New Yorker who lives in London and is now a bonafide member of the Norwegian community in Rotherhithe.

"I experienced more of Scandinavia on my one day trip in London than my international trips to the actual countries!" Jacqui, LanternGhostTours (Tripadvisor, 2015)

"If you dream of visiting Scandinavia this year but can't manage it, then go on this visit " Susan F, Whitstable (Tripadvisor, 2015)
