Great British Questions Episode 1: Cheese

July 20, 2010

Hello chaps!

Recently, VisitBritain sent me and Olly on a trip around Britain in order to answer the nation’s most pressing questions in the form of five short videos.

So prepare yourself for Episode One of Helen and Olly’s Great British Questions:

Where is the cheesiest place in Britain?

Share this video on Facebook

Here’s where we went in our pursuit of cheesiness:

Paxton and Whitfield cheesemongers in Bath, part of a 200-year-old cheese-purveying business.
Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, where you can take a tour of the cheese caves, ride an open-topped bus through the gorge, visit the museum of prehistoric cheese, and of course, eat a whole load of cheese.
The Leagram Organic Dairy near Chipping, Lancashire, where you can not only buy some classic Lancastrian cheeses, but also be taught to make cheese by cheesemaker extraordinaire Bob Kitching. He can turn milk into cheese in the blink of an eye, and also has more naughty jokes about cheese than you ever imagined possible.
• The annual Stilton cheese-rolling. Get your entry forms in now to compete in the 2011 roll!

We enthusiastically recommend all those places. See below for photos of our antics; and please tune in next Tuesday for Episode Two: Film. For more VisitBritain finery, join their Facebook page.

We also owe massive thanks to Bob Smart at the Cheddar Caves, cheese enthusiast Warwick Davis, Uncle Henry’s for the cheese and treats, Tebay Services for not minding when Olly threw a pot of lime cheese everywhere, and, most of all, Tess Longfield and Rachel Aked at VisitBritain.
