Start at the City Art Gallery, where the merchants lived and traded in times past as the city developed from the confines of its medieval walls. See how this city was built on the trading of Butter, meat and whiskey. The English Market is central to the food history of the city and we meet some of its key traders. Enjoy selected food tastings finishing at the Market in the city centre.
