This bustling market town known as the ‘Rural Capital of Food’ boasts a culinary heritage that few can match. As well as other produce, visitors can sample Melton Mowbray pork pies and Stilton cheese – famous delicacies which, thanks to protected status, can only be made in this locality. Melton’s history is inextricably linked to hunting, and for centuries it was the place to be, with the royal, the rich and the famous spending autumns and winters here. Nowadays, rich, crunchy pastry and succulent British pork ensure these unique pies remain popular, and Dickinson & Morris’ Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe, established in 1851, is one of Melton’s top attractions.

Easton Walled Gardens nestle in a beautiful, rolling valley in South West Lincolnshire. They have been owned by the Cholmeley family for over 400 years. President Franklin D Roosevelt considered them one of the best gardens in the UK, writing home to his mother that the gardens were “A dream of Nirvana... almost too good to be true.”. The original gardens contained several walled enclosures around a mediaeval manor house. Over the centuries the design of the gardens changed and by the Victorian era the gardens were filled with bedding and borders, ornamental stonework, glasshouses, fine trees and even melon pits.
