Fodor's Review

Sort of the cheese equivalent of a winery, this museum in a working dairy documents how the famed local cheese—so beloved by the popular animated characters Wallace and Gromit—developed over time. You can watch production (best seen between 10 and 2, but not available every day) from the viewing gallery, and then taste (and buy) the output in the excellent cheese shop. A restaurant serves plenty of samples—try Wensleydale smoked, with ginger, or with apple pie.
