Explore Britain With Your Taste Buds

Are you a Foodie Traveller?

Is your idea of bliss touring a vineyard on a summer’s day and tasting a glass or two of wine? Are you just as happy eating a field to fork feast on the farm wearing your wellies as dining in a fancy restaurant?

If you like a good meal, a bit of tipple, an intriguing story and have an appetite for discovery and adventure, you’re in the right place.

We have hundreds of ways for you to explore foodie Britain. From cycling and walking trails; gourmet garden cafes, cookery courses and food festivals; to farm visits, distillery tours and vineyards.

Let us inspire you and give you everything you need to plan a foodie day out or gourmet getaway in Britain. We’ve made it easy with our handy travel tips, touring maps, hotels suggestions and links to trusted booking partners.


Hello Foodie Travellers,

I set up The Foodie Travel Guide to inspire fellow food lovers to have fun exploring the food map of Britain. Too often, supermarket shopping leaves us feeling disconnected from the people and places who are dedicated to providing us with delicious food and drink.

This guide celebrates them – the farmers, distillers, wine-makers and figures both historical and contemporary, who continue to influence our national palate.

By uncovering their wonderful stories and travelling off the beaten track, as well as into the beating heart of the city, I’ve discovered some fantastic tasting experiences and ideas for foodie days out and gourmet getaways across the British Isles.

I hope this collection will inspire you to become a food tourist in Britain and that you’ll create many happy food memories on your culinary travels. Join me and my fellow contributors as we explore new places and meet extraordinary people by following us on Facebook and twitter and by signing up to our newsletter.
