the pitt, Edinburgh


Scotland’s best street food vendors are travelling to Pitt Street to sell you their specialties. For a £1 entry fee, you could enjoy 14 hours of food-fuelled fun! Children are welcome until 8pm and the event closes at 10pm, giving you enough time to taste the flavours of Scotland – and if you haven’t had enough, remember the event runs every Saturday until December 17th. Head to Waverley station and Pitt Street is only a couple of miles away – so close you could almost taste it.

Chocfest, Leicester


If you have a sweet tooth, this event is for you. It couldn’t have come at a more perfect time – with Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to start building ideas for that all-important dinner. A £4 admission fee can drop you into the mix of chocolates, cakes, macaroons, biscuits and liqueurs. Wine, champagne, and cheeses are available at other stalls. You can also book a place in a workshop for £5 and learn how to make chocolate lollies and attend chocolate tastings. The nearest stop is Melton Mowbray train station which is only a short, 15-minute walk away from Mowbray Cattle Market. This event will be held on the weekend of 19th and 20th November.

Urban Food Fest, Manchester & East London


Every Saturday, in 2017, two of the busiest cities in England will host a food festival of epic proportions. Fifteen different food trucks arrive on the day and cook their best bites for you. The event is absolutely free and everyone is welcome. It will go on from midday to midnight, giving you a full 12 hours of feasting to take part in, should you wish. The nearest train stations to each location are Deansgate (Manchester) and Liverpool Street Station (London), both within mere metres of the venues.
