H. Forman and Son in East London is a famous smokehouse set up in 1905 which still runs in the family today. Voted the Best Unusual or Unique Venue at the London Venue Awards in 2015, it makes the perfect spot to tour for those with a love of smoked salmon. Start off by learning the processes that go in to producing the finest smoked Scottish salmon. At Forman's on-site restaurant sit down and share a delicious smoked salmon platter whilst enjoying amazing views of the Olympic Stadium. Listen to a talk on the history of the smokehouse, receive a carving demonstration from Guinness World Record-holder Darren Matson and tour the gallery. Feel free to purchase salmon goodies.

Fascinating Quality Tour
This was a very belated 2020 Birthday present at a place that we have been looking to go to for years. Very informative talk by Lance Forman followed by a very well presented (and humorous) demo by Darren. Finally, an excellent “taster” lunch of smoked salmon topped up by two excellent glasses of Chapel Down wine. All VERY well organised.
