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.
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.
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.
