    This is the shop where you can find A.A Milne's loveable character Winnie the Pooh, a honey loving bear and of course all his friends like Eyore, Piglet, Kanga, Tiger and Roo.

    The store is fairly small but they pack a lot in.
    I bought a door handle tag for my bedroom with tidy this room - perhaps in the hope one of my housemates will do it for me?? :-)

    You can also order online

    What to buy: There are a number of collectable items as well as soft toys for all ages and story books

    My sister is a Pooh fan of note!

    When we came to Canterbury, this was one shop she HAD to visit! It has a wide range of Winnie the Pooh toys, ranging from puzzles to crockery to pencil drawings to fridge magnets!

    Everything you could think of really.

    We bought a little Christening bowl for my niece and some other knicknacks. My sister has enough Pooh stuff to be honest haha

    Winnie the Pooh shop.: Bears everywhere!

    by planxty Written Oct 30, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Winnie the Pooh shop, Canterbury, Kent, England.

    This shop will absolutely delight teddy bear lovers everywhere. Although named the Winnie the Pooh shop, all your other favourites (Paddington, Rupert etc.) get an outing. It has just everything bear related, and ranges from pocket money items to bears the cost of which, frankly, staggered me. These are only for serious collectors, I suppose.

    What to buy: Teddy bears, and just about every related item.

    City Centre: Pedestrians Rule !!

    by kentishgirl Updated Nov 5, 2004

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Canterbury

    As you can see from this piccie the main high street is Pedestrianised from top to bottom, there are "very" restricted times when vehicles can use the high street, making it a much safer place!

    Photographic shops: Photos

    by kentishgirl Updated Nov 5, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want your photos developed here or need any extra films or batteries, there are a few shops in the city centre that will help you.

    What to buy: The main shop for developing is Boots, this is a chain of chemists but they have a great photographic service upstairs and can process in 1 hour.

    Jessops is another, they process in 30minutes I think?!

    There are also another couple on the main high street, but these are the main two.

    What to pay: I think 1 hour in Boots is about £10 for an APS, depending on your type of prints. They have the prices up on the wall behind the desk anyway!

    the main street through town

    What to buy: The main street that runs through town offers all of the main department stores, along with small shops selling souvenirs,books, antiques, art, jewellers, the list is endless.

    Do bear in mind, that there are many little streets off of the main street which also house many shops.

    Various: Down the high street

    by deeper_blue Written Sep 6, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The high street has a great traditional feel to it, many shops still have the thatched roofs on view. There are many small cobbled sidestreets and old style pubs. Just watch out for the French schoolkids.

    What to buy: If you've got a sweet tooth, try Benny's towards the Westgate, past the bridge on the right if you are walking from McDonalds. They've got a great pic'n'mix selection.
