A city tour with a side of fromage? What a gouda idea.

The two-tour tour of the UK’s second biggest city starts in the Northern Quarter and takes you through central Manchester with regular pitstops fueled by artisan cheese and sparkling wine. Stop-offs include some of Manchester’s finest dairies and cheese mongers like Sicilian-run Haunt. A cheeseboard here might include a whipped herb ricotta and a gorgonzola dolce, while elsewhere cheeses come from closer to home with the chance to sample a local Lancashire made by a local celebrity who may or may not have something to do with Manchester’s most famous street.

Woman holding plates of cheese

Typical attractions include the Cheese Hamlet, a family-run business that has been selling cheese for over 50 years and The Cheese Yard, a bijou establishment that specialises in British cheeses including award winning cheddar, stilton, and wensleydale.

Cheese and biscuits

Tour guides are slick and witty, with more cheesy jokes than you can shake a cocktail stick at. Expect gems of local knowledge while the whole outing is brought to life with games and quizzes along the way.

What a brie-lliant way to explore Manchester.
