Today, July 25th, is international cheese and wine day. Why not kick back and treat yourself to a cheeseboard and glass or two by yourself or with friends. If you're not necessarily a connoisseur yourself there's plenty of places in London willing to delight and educate.
Why not start with some cheese fit for the Queen, literally. Drop by Spitalfields market and visit Androuet. They are a supplier for Paxton and Whitfield, who in turn supply the Queen. Quality is of utmost importance here so whether you stay for a hot meal at the cheese bar or take something home from the shop you can rest easy knowing you are getting the best product available.
