Old fashioned sweetshop - Haworth

Old fashioned sweetshop

Mrs Beighton's Sweet Shop: Old fashioned sweet shop!

There is a lovely sweet shop right near The Old White Lion pub in the centre of the village. Once again, another little find in the village that makes you feel as though you have stepped back in time: Mrs Beighton's Sweet Shop.

The walls are lined with see-through jars of multi-coloured sweets…Mouth watering treats abound in this little nook off the Main Street. You can imagine the Famous Five and Secret Seven of Enid Blyton’s imagination buying their gobstoppers and ginger beer from just such a place!

A lovely place in which to peep your head in search of sweets from yester-year.

Directions: Mrs Beighton's Sweet Shop is to the left of The Old White Lion...just at the top of Main Street, passed the Rose & Co. Apothecary.

The Rose & Co Apothecary - Haworth

The Rose & Co Apothecary

The Rose & Co. Apothecary: Step back in time...

A delightful shop in which to loose yourself for half an hour! This old fashioned chemist is filled with ointments and lotions from times gone by…using old fashioned packaging soaps and lotions are bottled and wrapped making delightful presents. There is also a small alcove at the back of the shop selling gorgeous materials and lace. I highly recommend you pop into this shop as you pass through the village. It makes you forget which century you are in!

What to buy: This place is a treasure trove of treats! There are rows upon rows of ointments and bath treats and odds and ends in their old fashioned packaging...bath products, make-up, old fashioned sweets, lace curtains, zambuc! It is facinating to wander around and see what you can find hidden amongst the shelves.

What to pay: The shop is not cheap, but you can buy some nice Christmas presents or birthday treats from there that are quite unique and very different.
