Went on a day trip to Southport and just wandered around the shops. We found this place by accident and very happy we did! They have every sweet you can image. I bought homemade chocolates and truffles and they were absolutely divine! Wish they delivered. Absolute must visit,bring your pocket money!

A place not to be missed - every sweet you remember from your childhood on sale here. Never mind the calories - treat yourself. Even strolling down the Arcade is fun.

This shop stocks many of the traditional sweets that I remember from my childhood. Next door there is a cafe where you can sit and relax in an Edwardian arcade.

A lovely little shop! I walked in and was immediately taken back to my childhood, surrounded by sweets that I grew up adoring. There's a plentiful selection and even some really good gift ideas and packages. I purchased two authentic wooden train toys which were full of sweets and I can't wait to give them to my two little boys... More

Popped in with my girlfriend during a short break. Lots of sweets to choose from, i had cola bottles and kendal mint cake and my girlfriend had a selection of lollipops. Cant grumble with the price. Always worth a visit.
