This quaint fish and chip shop has been serving up England’s favourite dish since 1865.
Like the rest of England, the people in Leeds are big fans of fish and chips. Some will tell you this comforting dish is best served with lashings of salt and vinegar, others insist the only way to eat it with a bit of gravy but one thing is certain: the Leeds town of Yeadon is home to the longest running fish and chip shop in the world.
The National Federation of Fish Friers, based in Leeds, have researched the site of the quaint little chip shop now trading as 'The Oldest Fish & Chip Shop in the World', to reveal that fish and chips have indeed been served from the premises continually since 1865. So you’ll be enjoying a real taste of history!
The town of Yeadon is 9 miles (14.4km) north of Leeds in West Yorkshire, which has regular rail links from London in less than 3 hours.
