Run 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.

2-6 Moxon Street, W1U 4EW
