What did you get up to?
The tour started in Mayfair where we were taken to Fortnum and Mason where we were treated to 2 different types of cheese, one of which was an amazing double truffle Gloucester cheese! I didn’t think I liked Gloucester until that day.
We were then taken to an elite cheesemongers called Paxton and Whitfield, probably one of the oldest cheese vendors in the business. We tried some fantastic blue cheese!
We moved on to Lina Stores where we tried cheese which has been soaked and matured in red wine and also we also tried a prosecco one. I hadn’t tried cheese like that before.
After this, we had a little sit down outside and ate a slice of margarita pizza at an adorable pizzeria not too far from Lina Stores. Once we had finished sitting down the tour guide brought over some goats’ cheese for us too!
What did you enjoy the most?
The truffle Gloucester was definitely my favourite out of the lot!
1. As there are so many different types of cheese to try I recommend not to eat beforehand.
2. I also recommend wearing comfortable shoes as you will be walking around London to all the best places to try cheese.
