Knutsford’s walking food tour, Taste Knutsford, is returning in July 2021.
The tour showcases the best of Knutsford’s culinary offerings with guests walking around Knutsford tasting a variety of foods from brunch, charcuterie, ice creams, chocolate and sorbet, tapas through to afternoon tea and gin. The tour lasts approximately 3 hours and is led by either Lucy Farnon, Nicola Arnell, or Colette Clarke. All three are local residents, knowledgeable and huge food fans.
Sandra Curties, Town Centre and Marketing Officer for Knutsford Town Council said, “Our last tour was early March 2020 which, to be honest, seems a lot more than just over a year ago. We are planning the tours return in line with the government’s roadmap out of lockdown and in any case all our tours will be fully compliant with whatever covid regulations are in force at the time. Our venues can’t wait to get involved again – the tours are a lovely and sociable way of showcasing both our hospitality venues and Knutsford as a whole”.
