Richard Ayoade descends upon Hungary’s fairy tale capital Budapest for a whistle-stop tour with comedian, actor and writer Aisling Bea. There’s a starter lesson with the seemingly impenetrable national language and a selfie tour taking in as many of the city’s sights as possible – including a statue of Columbo actor Peter Falk.
There’s also goulash; a ‘ruin pub’ for a taste of unicum, the local herbal liquor; a game of chess at the thermal baths; a children’s railway; some chimney cake; and a ride on the Zugliget chairlift, high in the Buda hills.
