We visit the world-famous Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe, discover how to ‘hand-raise’ a pie, and enjoy a tasting. We take lunch at a local hotel.
In the afternoon we take a gentle drive through the picturesque Leicestershire countryside, with views of the imposing Belvoir Castle, situated high above the Vale of Belvoir.
