From Scotland’s whisky coast to the grandest veg patches cultivated on England’s green and pleasant land, this issue is full of inspiration for travelling foodies
While actual physical travel has been somewhat restricted of late, there has never been a better time to explore the British Isles vicariously through the pages of Discover Britain.
Alongside our lead feature, which takes a deep dive into the 2,000-year history of York, we also have a little “food and drink” theme in this issue. We begin with a look at the tradition of kitchen gardens, which kept many stately homes self-sufficient, before Adrian Mourby trawls the picturesque west coast of Scotland to highlight the finest whisky distilleries.
Continuing the thirst-quenching theme, London’s historic pubs reveal the changing tastes of the capital, then we finish the issue with a look at the humble British pudding, a traditional dessert that we take very seriously. We hope this gives you a little taste of the British Isles from the comfort of your home.
