The central branch of this Victorian-style sweetshop is always packed with customers searching for a sweet brand of nostalgia. It’s the perfect place to find the sweets, sherbets, chews and chocolates that were once the focus of a proper British childhood. Tall glass jars filled with a wish list of suckable pleasures line the back wall, delicate plates of chocolates are displayed on the counter, and various gift sets fill the rest of the shop. A 400g glass jar of lemon bonbons will set you back £7.99; alternatively, you can just pop in for a sugar pig, a Curly Wurly or a packet of sherbet Dip Dabs.
