Browse cheese at International Cheese

Your author always imagined that the cheese shop in Liverpool Street Station was a fleeting business idea on the brink of failure, and so it was particularly surprising to find out following a recent visit that International Cheese is more than 25 years old and is still going strong.

The International Cheese Centre first opened its doors - we are told - in October 1987 at its original site in Goodge Street, and owner Ray Kenny has since expanded to shops in Liverpool Street, Victoria and Marylebone Stations, self-defining as "one of the few remaining family run businesses in London today". Whilst the last bit is probably clever marketing, Ray and his team should almost certainly be congratulated on pursuing what might have sounded to many in the 80s like a hair-brained scheme.

  1. The cheeses in Liverpool Street Station are delicious! After shopping there, all one needs are biscuits, rolls and fruits, and a picnic is complete.
