Arcadia is a family business, Mum, Dad and daughter. The shop has been continually operating as a sweetshop in Bedford for over 100 years and the basic layout has hardly changed over that time. Relive childhood memories and rediscover what good old-fashioned sweets taste like.
What to buy: A comprehensive range of good quality bars of chocolate and handmade chocolates. Pick ‘n mix or the more traditional favourites from the many jars.
This is Bedford's main shopping centre, at least in the town centre. It has most of the major chain stores found anywhere in Britain.
What to buy: You can find the same items that you would anywhere in the UK.
What to pay: About the same as in other shops in Britain.
