A foodie’s guide to great British getaways

Restaurant critic Grace Dent and chef Ainsley Harriott are our guides on this delicious mix of food show and travelogue, exploring in each episode one of the best seaside holiday destinations the British Isles has to offer: South Devon, the Isle Of Wight, Carmarthenshire, Aberdeenshire and Norfolk (Norwich and Great Yarmouth).

In each location, the foodie duo stays in one self-catering property, where they cook for and entertain each other, and one gorgeous hotel; meeting the owners and top chefs and soaking up the unique ambiance. From their two delightful accommodations they explore the local surroundings and attractions, and experience hidden foodie hotspots. Whether it’s peerless piers and cream teas, or a bag of chips in the car after a blustery walk on the beach, this series shows that there’s nothing Brits love more than a trip to the seaside.
