Full description
Spend an afternoon exploring London on a cheese-themed guided walking tour. Sample some cheesy treats, learn about the capital’s relationship to cheese, and put your cheese knowledge to the test. Meet your guide in Mayfair by the Statue of Goddess Diana. Then, walk over to Fortnum & Mason’s legendary cheese counter, where you will tuck into some of London’s finest blue cheese. The department store has been serving cheese for over 300 years and sells tonnes of Stilton every December. It even provides the royals with their dairy fix. During the tour, put your cheese expertise to the test with a fully interactive cheese trivia quiz, the “QUIZtro Formaggio.” Next, head to London’s little-known Little Italy. Nothing quite beats a great wine paired with cheese, and here you will try "drunk cheeses"! Devour lots of other dairy delights before completing your cheese adventure in Covent Garden.

Definitely do this tour if you love cheese! Our guide, Jack (also known as Monterey Jack) was extremely personable and shared many a cheese pun along the way. We tried 6 types of cheese at 5 different stops and had a glass of Prosecco at the third stop. It was so interesting to try different types of cheese that you can't get elsewhere because they're not exported (at least not to the US). It's hard to pick a favorite because they were all good, but I think mine was the excellent Stilton which was also Winston Churchill's favorite! Bring a bottle of water as you'll want it between tastings. Highly recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed the 'Cheese Crawl' on Saturday. Our guide Natalie was knowledgeable, fun and engaging and threw in extra fun facts about London as we passed places of interest. It was professional and relaxed, and would recommend this for a fun way to spend a few hours, seeing the capital from a slightly different perspective. All the cheeses were delicious too! And the prosecco hit the spot too!
