Starting in St. Anne’s Square you’ll make your way to Tib Street in the Northern Quarter via independent delis and cheese mongers who have plenty of passion for our favourite dairy based delights. Your easy going guide will combine the knowledge of experts and their own experience to immerse you in the cheese making process. Aside from the genuinely educational side of the tour, you can be sure to expect a few cheesy jokes along the way as well. Expect to be immersed in the culture of cultured milk unlike you’ve ever experienced it before.
