Neal's Yard Dairy on the edges of the famous Borough Market in London

Got the financial blues ? One bright light on the horizon is the rise of the dollar against the English Pound, making a visit to England more affordable than it has been for some time and for a cheese lover England has some major attractions.
The rise of English country cheeses has been phenomenal with many traditional cheeses being revived and new raw milk varieties coming on to the scene.
If you are staying in London you can see and taste an abundance of exquisite artisanal cheeses. A trip to the renowned Neal’s Yard Dairy is now within your sights. Tucked away on the edges of the famous Borough Market, on the south shore of the River Thames and right next to Southwark Cathedral, a stepping off point for a walk along the river to the Tate the National Theatre, there Neal’s Yard Dairy ages and sells the best of English cheeses. Run by a Wisconsin cheesemaker David Lockwood, Neal’s yard has established itself as the pre-emptive cheese market in London , and yes, tasting is encouraged here! Ask David or any other of the knowledgeable staff for new cheeses and a taste of the only US cheese imported into the EU! If you have time, make a trip to Jermyn Street, to the famous, long-established Paxton & Whitfield. For a complete overview and history of Neal’s Yard Dairy and Borough Market, just tune to and

      Hello Roberto,

      There are not full fledged cheese courses in France. If you are looking for a good cheese course, Artisanal Cheese, New York, and The Cheese School of San Francisco, offer some very good courses. If you Google them you will find a list of courses.

      If you are looking for a cheese tour. I do custom tours to England and France. It does take me time to put a package and price together.

      Tell me what you are looking for exactly. That way I can give you the best advice.

      I highly recommend the Book Mastering Cheese by Max McCalman of Artisanal Cheese of New York.

      Looking forward to hearing from you.
