London's Top 5 Cheese Shops

London's Top 5 Cheese Shops, IMG Cred: Chris OsburnRun out of Roquefort? Really longing for a wedge of Red Leicester? Just can't bear the thought of another day without camembert? If you find yourself in London hankering for some quality cheese, you are in luck. The city has some of the finest cheesemongers in the whole of the British isle (selling an array of regional cheeses from across Europe as well as many raw milk varieties which you might not be able to find back in the States). So when it's time to bring on the brie and cherish the cheddar be sure to refer to this list for a taste of London's cheesiest retail experiences.

La Cave a Fromage

The nearest London Underground station is at South Kensington.


This shop offers a fantastic range of mostly French and continental cheeses. La Cave does wine and all the nibbles too. A short walk from Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, drop by for picnic inspiration.

La Fromagerie
2-6 Moxon Street, W1U 4EW

Located in upscale Marylebone, La Fromagerie is as central as it gets. Still, somehow any visits feel like a trip to the countryside. Next door neighbors with The Ginger Pig (one of London's best butchers ) with a farmers' market right out its entrance every Sunday, it's a fine place to shop for foodie treats.
