Friendly, attentive service and a selection of every childhood sweet you can remember and a few you will have forgotten. A cute, treasure trove of a shop.

Part of a chain, this shop looks the part, with old-style sweets in old-style jars behind and old-style counter. The owner is friendly and efficient. Well worth visiting for those sweets that are difficult to find anywhere else.

Very traditional sweet shop of the type and style you'd expect (or remember) from the sixties. Being quite small, try to avoid busy periods. The selection is huge for the size of the shop but the branded sweets can be quite expensive. I'd recommend the...More

Mr Simms is a chain of old-style sweet shops, but each one is set up so as to appear as being an independent shop being run by an owner who just wants to bring back the joys of buying sweets from old jars, getting them...More

This shop sells all the sweets you thought would never see the light of day again! In boxes, packets or loose. A box of New Berry Fruits for £2.99 will be hard to find anywhere else. A treasure trove or real sweets!
