Food and Drink
Here we are showcasing some of the best food and drink experiences that your clients can enjoy when visiting the United Kingdom.
Britain’s food and drink is much like the country itself – rooted in history, yet always evolving, and hugely varied depending on which region you visit.
The Food and Drink Tourism Hub
You may not have previously considered Britain as an option for your clients to visit on a foodie vacation, but that will change after you see our inspirational food and drink itineraries…
London and South East England
London has long been a melting pot of people and cultures, and nothing illustrates this better than the city’s diverse culinary scene. Its drink offering is varied too; in fact, it is not uncommon to find a pub hundreds of years old in the same street as a curry house or tapas bar.
South West England
The South West is home to some of the UK’s finest food and drink. With fresh ingredients daily, the restaurant scene is vibrant, with a wide range of dining options from casual dining to high end experiences. Bristol is home to five Michelin starred restaurants in 2019 but and also to the UK’s best burger chef. Bristol is also regarded as one of the world’s best Vegan destinations.
Along with numerous breweries, most of which are small local craft brewers, historic pubs dating back to the 17th century (including those featured in the novel ‘Treasure Island’) sit alongside prohibition style cocktail bars. Gin distilleries, vineyards and 225-year-old wine cellars give the chance to tour behind the scenes and enjoy a taste, or even make your own gin.
Yorkshire and The North of England
The people of Yorkshire are immensely proud of their county, and especially their food and drink. There is certainly a lot more on offer than Yorkshire puddings! Yorkshire has a diverse landscape featuring cosmopolitan cities, pretty market towns, rugged coastline and the famous Moors and Dales, something which is reflected in the range of food and drink experiences on offer.
Scotland is known around the world as the home of the finest whisky and salmon, but there is so much more to Scotland’s unrivalled natural larder. Whether it is Angus beef for the juiciest steaks, delicious fresh oysters from Loch Fyne, or traditional shortbread, your clients can enjoy culinary experiences that perfectly complement the stunning scenery that rewards any who visit Scotland.
Wales offers a unique culinary adventure, set against the stunning backdrop of its hills, valleys and coastlines.
Renowned worldwide for its cheese, a visit to Wales not only gives visitors the chance to try some crumbly Caerphilly or some smooth Teifi, but also the chance to get up close to see how this and a wide range of other award winning cheese is made.
