Take A Central London Ice Cream Crawl

Ice cream.

It’s so hot right now.

Why? Because, well, it’s so hot right now. So take advantage by taking a flavoursome stroll through the best central London ice cream haunts, picking up some of the best, weirdest, coolest, most mind-blowing ice creams known to our species as you go. You may want to skip a step or two, should your blood-sugar levels spike a little too hard, but rest assured, you’ll be having an exceptional day either way.

Our journey is going to start in Covent Garden’s Seven Dials, at…

Udderlicious - central London ice cream crawl

This independent ice-creamery make all their scoops fresh in store, and choose their flavours via an incredibly democratic voting system. Log onto their website, and you’ll get to cast three votes for their next lineup of ice creams. It means that if you head into their stores, you’ll find everything from chocolate honeycomb, to pistachio, to bourbon carrot cake, to rhubarb & fig. Grab something interesting, start strolling, and in five minutes you’ll be at Soho’s ice cream spot…

Chin Chin Club | 54 Greek Street, W1D 3DS

This is where things get REALLY interesting. All their ice cream is made using liquid nitrogen, so it’s smooth and crystal free. And the coolness doesn’t stop there; they’re also serving things like The Choux-wich (a choux ice cream sandwich with Persian Pistachio and olive oil ice cream); and “Miracle Cones”, with sugar-free ice cream which miraculously tastes sweet after you pop a miracle berry pill. Get something mind-blowing, and take a sunny, 5 minute jaunt to…

Bubblewrap Waffle | 24 Wardour Street, W1D 6QJ

Bubblewrap - central London ice cream crawl

They caused a minor sensation when they launched. Probably because bringing London ice cream wrapped inside bubble waffle is an idea so good, it’s up there with the wheel and the alphabet. You can get flavours like dark chocolate, pecan, and fudge; matcha, mocha, and red bean; or Oreo, salted caramel, and strawberry cheesecake. Take a deep breath, grab a cone, and start your short, 3 minute journey to…

Gelupo | 7 Archer St, W1D 7AU

Gelupo central London ice cream crawl

Run by the people behind Bocca Di Lupo directly opposite, Gelupo serves up very Italian gelato in very interesting flavours, including the likes of burnt caramel, tiramisu, blood orange, ricotta & sour cherry, and bitter chocolate. Take a small scoop, give yourself a pep talk if you need one, and head down the road to…

Yolkin | 24 Rupert Street, W1D 6DQ 

Yolkin - Ice cream crawl

Why? Macaroon ice cream sandwiches, that’s why. They serve them in flavours like Hong Kong milk tea, birthday cake, cantaloupe, summer berries, black sesame, pecan brittle, Eton mess, and more. Grab one, and take one last 7 minute stroll in the direction of…

BAO | 53 Lexington St, W1F 9AS

At last, we’re at a destination that does takeaway and eat in. You might have to wait in a queue (while finishing your ice cream), but don’t worry. It’s worth it for a seat, and some fried Horlicks ice cream. Now sit down, take whatever diabetes medication you pre-packed, relax, and think about what you’ve done.
