Leicestershire is a county famous for its food and drink. At the heart of all of this is the market town of Melton Mowbray, with a growing reputation as the UK’s ‘Rural Capital of Food’. On this tour we combine a guided walking tour of the town with a visit to the Ye Olde Pork Pie Shop. We take lunch in Melton Mowbray before going behind the scenes at Belvoir Brewery, a fast-growing micro-brewery. Oh, and did we mention the tastings? This is a tour that will appeal to every palate.
