The Best Places for a Foodie Break

If you love going out to eat like I do, you're probably always on the lookout for new restaurants to try. With summer coming up, you might even be looking forward to getting away for a short break where you can try some new food. There are lots of excellent foodie destinations for anyone who loves to eat. It doesn't matter whether you're watching your figure or happy to eat whatever's put in front of you. If you want somewhere to visit this summer to cruise from one restaurant to another, try these awesome destinations.

Fine Dining
With all the cooking shows on TV, lots of people are more interested in fine dining than they might have been before. You might not know a lot about how a restaurant goes about getting a Michelin star. But you know that having one is good, and having two or three is even better. If you want Michelin-starred dining, you can start in London, where you'll find plenty of restaurants to enjoy. But outside of the capital, there are other choices too. To hit up two restaurants with three Michelin stars each in one town, head to Bray in Berkshire. There's the Waterside Inn, owned by the Roux family, or Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck.

Fish and Seafood
The British Isles is one of the best places to sample some delicious, fresh seafood. We're a series of islands, after all. Unfortunately, we send a lot of our best stuff overseas, to countries like France and Spain. But if you want to try what we keep, head to one of many seaside towns for the freshest fish around. You could go up north and head to Scotland for award winning seafood restaurants. Or go south and select the best place to eat in Blackpool or to foodie hotspot Padstow, where you'll find one of Rick Stein's restaurants. In some seaside restaurants, you can watch the catch of the day come through the door as you're sitting down.

Hearty Pub Food
Although the British are much more adventurous in our food tastes now, we still love traditional fair. If you want hearty pub food, from steak and ale pie to bangers and mash, try Stamford in Lincolnshire. Hailed for its coaching inns with quality pub food, you can't go wrong with its Tudor and Georgian properties. They also have an excellent food market, so you can pick up your own delicious produce before you go home.

Food Markets
It's not just about the restaurants when you're a food lover. If you enjoy cooking as well as eating or even just making a sandwich, food markets are excellent to explore. You have lots of choices if you want to spend your time wandering markets, including St. Neots in Cambridgeshire. Richmond in Yorkshire also has some fantastic markets, including a daily indoor one, a Saturday market and a monthly farmers' market too.

If you love food, there are so many foodie hotspots to visit. To escape from the crowds, look for up-and-coming destinations that most tourists haven't caught onto yet.
