British Cuisine

British Foodie Areas

With 66 Michelin-starred restaurants, London is undisputably the epicenter of modern British cuisine.

Birmingham's Asian diaspora has rejuvenated its food scene, and the curry Balti has become the city's unofficial dish.

Manchester's food scene took a while to mature, but now the home of the Eccles cake and the Manchester tart offers the best dishes in the North.

For the most quintessentially Scottish culinary getaway, you can find the best of the best in Edinburgh, its capital, where old meets new.

Cambridge sausage rolls and sweet green plums are just a few delicacies synonymous with this mecca of higher education.

Ipswich and the county of Suffolk are known for delicious Newmarket sausage and a variety of local cheeses.

Chichester is steak and kidney pie country, with one award-winning pie shop serving up the best of this English staple.

One of the most popular seaside resorts in the UK, Brighton is where you go for delicious fish and chips and bangers and mash.

Oxfordshire is known for its spiced Banbury cake and also for its similarly zesty fruit scones, featuring ingredients like currants and raisins.

Bath, in the county of Somerset, is a great base to explore not just this Roman city but also the cheeses and local cuisine of Somerset.

This seaside resort is a large city in Dorset and is a great place to explore Dorset cuisine, like knobs dipped in Blue Vinny cheese.

Penzance is the "end of the line" in the main British Rail system, and it is a great place to explore as you venture out and enjoy Cornish pasties, oysters, and much more!

Leicester is the "curry capital of the UK", where you can taste curries from all over the Indian Subcontinent. Melton Mowbray is famous for its cold pork pie.

Ludlow, near the city of Shrewsbury in Shropshire, has had a culinary tradition stretching back generations and is one of the top foodie towns in England.

From legendary hotpot recipes to delectable butter tarts, the county of Lancashire is known for hearty food that won't leave you disappointed.

From York to Harrogate to Bradford to Wakefield, there are so many towns and cities to explore and so many delicacies to enjoy. (Parkin anyone?)

The Lake District is the UK's most popular national park and is a place where people can eat very well, particularly if you visit Cartmel, Windermere, and Kendal.

Whether you're here to visit the Castle Douglas food town for fresh jams, delicious cheeses, or Galloway beef, Dumfries and Galloway is a popular region for foodies.

The capital of Wales is a great place to sightsee and try delicious Welsh dishes. Monmouthshire, between Cardiff and Brecon, is another must-see foodie region.

The capital of Northern Ireland is where you'll be able to try all of the country's must-savor specialties, from Lough Neagh eel to boxty to Fifteens.
Countries to Explore

From bangers and mash to steak and kidney pie to Indian takeaways and innovative fusion cuisine, England has a lot to offer to those wanting a foodie tour.

Scotland's culinary tradition is quite delicious (yes, even the haggis!) and you will find high-quality dishes from restaurants and caf├ęs across the entire country, from the city to the islands.

Welsh cuisine is more than just cawl and Welsh rarebit: this country of the United Kingdom offers legendary flavors and dishes you simply cannot find anywhere else.

Northern Ireland offers a mix of British and Irish cuisines, perhaps most famously seen in the addition of soda bread and potato farls to breakfast to make an "Ulster fry".

When people think of British cuisine, they think of staples such as fish and chips, bangers and mash, and the Sunday roast (roast beef, potatoes, vegetables and Yorkshire pudding). Not only do England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland have their own traditional dishes, the dishes of the Commonwealth nations have found their way to the UK as well. Today, it is considered just as quintessentially British to go to an Indian restaurant as it is to go to "the chippy". Britain's culinary scene has grown exponentially in the past few decades; nearly 200 restaurants across the country have been Michelin-starred, and many chefs have become celebrities.
