The Smokehouse Experience

It is time for you to step into H. Forman & Son's Smokehouse, home of the world famous London Cure smoked Scottish salmon since 1905.

Did you know, smoked salmon should NOT taste of smoke? This is just one of the interesting facts we learnt on our visit to H. Forman's Smokehouse.

Your day out starts with an hour's tour of the factory itself. Dress in protective clothing (a great photo opportunity) before you step into the factory amongst the team packing, slicing, curing and sealing smoked salmon. Here you will have a talk by Darren Matson (a Guinness World Record Salmon Carver) that is engaging, funny and extremely educational.

Some things you will learn about include:

  • The difference between farmed and wild Salmon

  • Why notches are cut into the skin of the fish

  • How to slice, de-bone and salt the salmon

  • How the smoking and curing process works

Following your tour, sit down in the onsite restaurant and enjoy a world-famous London Cure smoked salmon & cream cheese bagel served with a side salad, followed by homemade luxury chocolate brownie treats with and Tea, Coffee & Still/Sparkling Water.

After your visit to the Smokehouse you can have free time to explore the Olympic Park.

Please note, even in summer months, you must be dressed appropriately with closed-toe shoes and a jumper, jacket and/or scarf as the factory is a large fridge! Even if it is hot outside, the factory remains the same temperature.
