Very lovely quaint little shop that we had missed on the evening we arrived in York. Located right in the middle of the main street, this shop could very well be the sweets' pharmacy! The shop owner was really concerned when we chose some really...More

Find your old childhood lollies in here, good prices and yummy lollies. It's a small shop but packed with variety and the two ladies serving were awesome.

One of the best lolly shops I've been into. Plenty of old school delights that I haven't seen since I was a kid. Even the cash register is old! There is something for everyone and the way the proprietor has put up old signs from...More

This shop is wonderful - sweets, lollies and ice-cream! The owners, Garry and Linda, are both very friendly. They live in York so they are also a great source of information about other local attractions.

Hi Milly Thankyou for your review. The high pitched noise is actually an ultrasonic pest deterrent. It is unusual that adults can hear it but we have found that some 10-13 year olds can hear it, mostly boys interestingly enough. Thanks to your review we...More

If you like your old fashion sweets then you need to visit here while your in York. They have a great range of sweets from the old favourites to some of the hard to find. Even some soft drinks you won't find else where.

It's easy to spend more time than you planned in this lolly shop, not just browsing the enormous range of sweet things, but looking at the interesting artefacts from the past. I had a chat with the proprietor who gave advice about what to do...More
