Food Tour of the UK

With competition in Europe from France and Italy, it's no surprise that the UK is not well known for its cuisine. However, it is a great destination if you're a foodie and is home to some of the finest Michelin-starred restaurants and top chefs. It also has a diverse cuisine, including national favorites, such as fish and chips, as well as less well-known dishes such as laverbread, Cornish pasties and haggis. If you would like to combine a vacation in Europe with your passion for fine cuisine, then we highly recommend this UK food tour, which takes you to London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Cornwall. It is also fully customizable so if there are other cities or regions that you would prefer to visit, that is not a problem at all - just tell us what you would like from your UK food tour and we can arrange all the details for you, including cooking classes and tours.
