Cheese (mmm)

Neal's Dairy Yard or Paxton & Whitfield - which is better?

I see that they are both within the West End but don't know far they are from each other. Do they both warrant visits?

Oh, I should probably tell you that I LOVE cheese. I've often said that I could exist solely on cheese and potatoes.

mmm

ps. 10 more days!!!

Both if you are a cheese muncher.

They are a 20 minute stroll apart. The Cannot Get Lost Route is:

From NDY, get onto Shaftesbury Avenue, walk all the way along to Piccadilly Circus. Cross the Circus into Piccadilly. Proceed down to Piccadilly to Fortnum & Mason. Turn left down side of F&M, & then left again into Jermyn Street. You'll find P&W opposite the church. Vice versa, equally simple.

If you have a London A-Z, you can nip though Haymarket, Leicester Square, Long Acre & down Neal Street into Short Gdns, or find your wend your way as streets catch you eye.

Access to Neals Yard (on edge of Covent Garden) is via Shorts Garden or Monmouth Street. It's behind Neal Street, but no access.

If you are at P&W, you can pop into Fortnum &Mason to stock up on even more foodie goodies, & next to P&W is Floris perfumier extraordinaire - lovely presents. All three have Royal warrants...for what it matters.

Neals Yard has the Neals Yard Pharmacy opposite the dairy. Full of herbal remedies AND the infamous herbal toiletries in the distinctive blue glass bottles. Back in Neal Street, you'll find Carluccio's for more foodie treats (branches all over London).

A bit more accurate...P&W is opposite the back door of St James Church - that'll be the church you pass on Piccadilly a moment before you get to F&M.

You can walk through the St James forecourt & portico to get from Piccadilly to Jermyn Street if it open. It is a lovely church & worth the time to appreciate.

Not sure where else you're visiting, but if cheese is your thing and you plan on going down to see Shakespears Globe, Tate Modern or anywhere else in that vicinity, Borough Market has some great cheese stalls (Neals Creamaery included) also some other good foodstuffs (like great bread to go with the cheese). only open Friday afternoon and Saturdays but if you are in the area anyway I'd say pop in. Good atmosphere and lots v smelly cheeses.

Only been to the Neals Yard at the Burough Market and I'd recommend that you visit on an empty stomach as they ply you with generous mouth watering samples of their wares:
