A walking tour of Bath for cheese lovers!

This special tour of Bath introduces some of the best cheeses from the UK. As Bath is located in the cheese-county of Somerset, we’ll taste some regionally made Cheddars, but we’ll also taste locally made cheeses, which in some cases are introduced by their makers.

Commentary on Bath’s culinary heritage is included but we’ll also highlight the city’s best cheese hotspots. Parings are included too, with an unusual session introducing cheese pairing with unique teas! There’ll be another tasting of locally made cheeses, before we finish by tantalising your taste buds with a wine & cheese pairing, giving you a chance to road-test the cheese knowledge you’ve gained!

This is a fun and informative tour for cheese lovers wanting to sample exceptional artisan cheeses. It’s an especially great option for those who are relatively new to the world of cheese, or those keen to learn about artisan cheeses!
